I'm a big fan of Bedrock (and all of Roots in general)

Josh Koenig Josh Koenig

Bedrock is like the bridge between WordPress and the rest of PHP

Roots' distros have been essential to jumping back into WordPress devel after a decade out. Until WP quits being an antiquated, monetized pit of code, this is all that’s holding my sanity in check.

Bedrock is doing a huge service to the WordPress community, and I can see it being adopted as the standard for WordPress development. Hopefully as more people adopt it, the developer community at large will view WordPress sites on similar footing as more “professional” platforms.

If you have to use WordPress, use Bedrock for your web app and Sage to develop your custom theme. Any Laravel developer will feel at home in these tools.

I think 2 years ago I tweeted to y'all to say I love Sage -- now I'm getting started with Bedrock and loving it! thank you for making me feel like WordPress can be sane, secure, and modern.
