New Maintainer Team and the future of WP Rig

At the end of 2020, we began transitioning responsibility of WP Rig over to a new team of maintainers. Today, we have a new team of maintainers and progress has been made on getting WP Rig moving again. We pushed out a new release at the beginning of the year that addressed some long-standing issues in the latest version of WP Rig. Specifics around that can be found in Github. So now what?

We have big plans for WP Rig moving forward…

First and foremost, we are currently working on improving documentation around WP Rig in a big way, so stay tuned to the website for updates there, as this is where most documentation for WP Rig will be found in the future.

Second, we are working on some semi-secret integrations with some local 😉 development build tools to make it easier and faster to get up and running with theme development using WP Rig. We are hoping that by introducing these, we can generate more interest around this amazing tool and get more people actively contributing to this project.

To keep things short and sweet, we have some pretty ambitious ideas for ways to improve WP Rig in the future. More features, better documentation, and integration with other popular development tools are our primary focuses for the rest of 2021.

We are always actively looking for people who would like to contribute to WP Rig. If you are interested in being a part of this journey with us, please feel free to reach out to us on Github, or join our Slack workspace to join the conversations around all things WP Rig and WordPress theme development.
