What others say
Sage, Bedrock, and Trellis by Roots have challenged me to become a better WordPress developer over the years & modernize my toolset.
Working with WordPress on two projects over the next few months, the folks at Roots really have some amazing resources!
Roots stack will either teach you a lot, or make you feel right at home depending on your background. Either way. It’s a no brainer for WP development at a professional level.
You’ll get differing opinions, but for me Roots/Sage was the best choice I ever made after playing with plenty of options. I think it’s a much better workflow, and actually teaches you good practices for wider development rather than very WP specific stuff.
