WordPress Workflow with git and forked blank theme repo

  • # December 17, 2012 at 5:23 pm

    So I’m starting on a new starter theme for myself. It’s gonna be some kind of mix between [Zurb's Foundation](http://foundation.zurb.com/ “”) Framework and the [Bones Starter Theme](http://themble.com/bones/ “”).

    I don’t like all features of them to be in there so I’m probably gonna tweak quite a lot. As I’ll for sure be using git version control I wonder how the best approach would be in terms of staying updated with changes in the original repos.

    Would you recommend having the original repos of both Foundation and Bones as remotes and pull new changes in? I figured that might get me a lot of cherry-picking during the merging?!

    Or would you start with the newest version of both and leave it like that, just developing the new starter theme on its own without connection to the original ones?

    I’m not really a git expert so I just wanted to see what workflow you would suggest.

    just get latest versions and work from those pulling updates will likely cause unexpected breakages.
