WP Rig May 1, 2022 Meeting Agenda

We are looking to hold meetings every month on the first Sunday of the month. Our current time is at 11 am central, but dates and time can change if more people want to attend but it doesn’t fit with their schedule. On that note we are looking for more maintainers so if you are looking to help us grow this project please reach out to us on Github or join our slack. We are planning on putting out the agenda before the next meeting so that those that would like to participate can.

WP RIG Development

Meeting Notes 05/01

01 MAY 2022 / 11:00 AM CENTRAL 


Rob Ruiz, Donte Henley, Sue Baily Weaver


Last Meeting Follow-up

  1. Gulp issues. Use Webpack and not Gulp? (Getting started with npm and Composer is overwhelming/confusing for inexperienced developers; Donte suggested making issue for updating our Gulp JSON dependencies to the latest versions because he is having to manually update one in particular [postcss-preset-env] – – Call to community to help with addressing updating dependencies??)   

New Business

  • Education being used to band-aid issues in Rig (YouTube videos on Easy Customizer & ACF are getting views – – we could do more of that, maybe once a month; Donte wants to do a Twitch/live stream of creating a website; OBS for recording – Rob/Donte may meet about that). 
  • Plugin development – Would developers like using something like WP Rig for plugin development? Block themes are forcing people to not put so much functionality in the theme. WP Rig may be perpetuating that problem (Rob mentioned the goal of not adding too much functionality into themes – theme is primarily for styling?; Donte‚Äôs work style is a bit different –  he does add more functionality into his themes). 
  • PRs: Prettier added recently (wondered if it is compatible with the rest of WP Rig or duplicating functionality? Seems to be okay but we should double check it?) 
  • ISSUES: Donte would like us to spend a little time looking at what PRs are left and figuring out which may have already been addressed; we ran out of time on the call to get through them


  • Maintainer Meetings now scheduled for the first Sunday of the month at 11:00 am Central. 


  1. Next Build: Donte would like to get a new version pushed out in the next week and then have it sent out to the community through social media.
