We’ve released the wp-password-bcrypt plugin to improve WordPress password security by using bcrypt instead of insecure MD5 password hashing.
A deep dive into what happens when you hit a URL on a WordPress website, and how to build a WordPress routing system that solves the issues with rewrites.
2015 was a really big year for Roots with the releases of Sage and Trellis. Our vision is to provide a suite of tools to make WordPress development better.
Using Linux Containers (LXD) as an Alternative to VirtualBox for WordPress development. LXD allows you to run any version of Linux inside a container.
Sage 8.3.0 introduces setup.php (config.php and init.php combined) and removes the search template, Modernizr, and the ConditionalTagCheck class.
Trellis 0.9.1 introduces MailHog for capturing emails during development, customizable timezones, and bug fixes.
Trellis uses Ansible, and we’re serious about development and production parity. Match your staging/production servers to your development VM.
We use other projects to help make development easier when working on WordPress sites. We stand on the shoulders of giants and let you stand on ours.
Trellis, formerly bedrock-ansible, is our latest project. Use Trellis to create and manage more professional server environments almost automatically.
Scott and Ben appear on this week’s Changelog podcast to talk about modern WordPress development. Bedrock, Sage, dependency management, deployment & more.
