Introduction: Building Progressive WordPress Themes

I started building WordPress themes more than 10 years ago. And since then, WordPress, the tools we use to build it, and the web it lives on have all changed and evolved.

Now, it’s time to evolve the theme building process as well. Today, I want to introduce you to a whole new way of building modern WordPress themes. It’s a tool my friends from the WordPress community and I have built, called WP Rig, which combines the best WordPress on the web platform have to offer with the latest and greatest build tools and automated processes, to make your theme as light and fast as possible.

WP Rig is a modern WordPress starter theme and build process, bundled into one convenient package. It helps you build WordPress themes that not only look great and provide exciting user experiences, but are also lightning fast and meet the latest web and performance standards.

In this course we’ll get set up and do a full breakdown of how WP Rig works, and how to work with it. And then we’ll explore a hands-on example on how to build advanced, modern PHP, JavaScript, and CSS with WP Rig.

WordPress is 15 years old and powers 34 percent of the web. WP Rig is built to make the web better by helping you build better themes. And in this course, I’ll show you how to get it right. Let’s get cracking!
