Yeopress has landed!

Yeoman magically takes you from scratching your head wondering where to start, all the way to running the famous 5-minute install.

Here is a quick overview of what it can offer:

  • Custom directory configuration
  • Install WordPress as a Git submodule for easy version controlled updates
  • Theme init hook for when you install a new theme
  • Permission setting on install
  • Create your database, all you have to do is make me a user
  • Built in Vagrant configuration
  • Coming Soonish Grunt tasks for some other WP tasks


How to use

If you do not already have the Yeoman toolset installed do so now, and might as well install me at the same time

npm install -g yo generator-wordpress

and run :

yo wordpress

Abrakatabra!!! WordPress is there waiting for you to play with.

Newly added in version 1.0.4 is the advanced flag, which enables a few extra prompts. These prompts allow you to use some extra features like the Vagrant integration and manually specifying the WP version. To enable the advanced options run the generator like this:

yo wordpress --advanced

Wes Todd has a great 5 minute video on youtube taking you through the installation.

Enjoy the ride!!!
