I usually don’t like too much working with WordPress.
A month ago a dear friend of mine asked asking me to create a plugin for his company
and i couldn’t because he wanted something too complicated for somebody –like me– who doesn’t know WordPress from the inside out
(he needed a subplugin for multisite integration with woocommerce and some other things i forgot).
So why am i writing a post about WordPress?
Well, because I have to admit that my past experiences with WordPress were pure frustration.
Working with WordPress for me it’s always been very uncomfortable and i recognize now that it was
because i did not have a solid workflow to get my local machine ready for WP development.
Now, after a few years of Front-End development and general interest in “front-end workflows” on other (non-wordpress) projects
i’ve tried to find (and actually found) a different approach which helped me to get a WP project on my localhost up and running in no time,
which immediately made me feel better organized and therefore happier to work with the platform i’ve hated for a long time now.
I’ve decided to share this to help occasional WordPress Developers to get more organized using new tools.
