Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Build, activate, and test your new theme, part of WordPress: Building Progressive Themes with WP Rig.
- [Instructor] Now that both WP Rig and the Editor … are configured and ready to go, we can run the development … process and build out the theme for the first time. … You see, the starter theme that ships in WP Rig … isn't a full fledged theme yet. … It doesn't actually work inside WordPress. … For that theme to work, it needs to be built out … by the development process so that we get all the files … optimized and everything strings together properly. … Now before I spin everything up, I'll just make sure … my local WordPress environment is up and running properly … by checking it in the browser. … I just go to the URL for the site, reload it, … maybe navigate around a little bit … just to make sure things are working. … Looks like it's working properly. … All right, that means we are ready to go. … Developing a theme in WP Rig requires the development … process to run in the background, … so the theme can be generated, and anytime you make a change … the code is updated to reflect that change. …
