WordPress supports a lot of “aging” ways of developing for it. The Roots.io family of projects attempts to modernize WordPress development by embracing newer tools in infrastructure management and PHP standards adopted by the larger PHP community. If you’re new to using Git, SSH, Vagrant, Ansible, Composer and WPackagist to help manage your WordPress projects, then follow me as we take a look at how the Roots team makes use of these technologies. The results of using these projects are easy to reproduce sites, tracked in version control, and built for modern, high performance needs.
