We want to be working locally while working on this project. Just a few reasons:
- It’s fast.
- We can work offline from anywhere.
- We’re working on a complete redesign that will take many days, we can’t leave a live site half-cocked.
- There is no risk working locally.
- We can use version control, giving us a record of what changed when and making future team work easier.
- We can use preprocessors.
To work locally, we use MAMP to create a local domain name with a local folder as the root. We use Sequel Pro to create (and manage) a local MySQL database. We download and install a fresh copy of WordPress and install it. We export all the posts/pages/comments/attachments and stuff from Jeff’s live site and import it locally.
Love the stuff. Is this your typical workflow with wordpress? Making sure you have a local install first? I ask because I’ve seen in some of your other videos you wen super simple with just html, scss, jquery using codekit.
Great video, just jumped into this new series, only problem so far is the mic on this particular one is quite low, previous videos were fine.
Has no one…NO ONE?…in over a year pointed out that “Environment” is spelled incorrectly in the title?
Well then, I’m honored. And it is. FYI.
Got that fixed.
