The organization of Bedrock is similar to putting WordPress in its own subdirectory but with some improvements:
- In order not to expose sensitive files in the web root, Bedrock moves what's required into a
web/directory including the
wp/source, and the
wp-contenthas been named
appto better reflect its contents. It contains application code and not just "static content". It also matches up with other frameworks such as Symfony and Rails.
wp-config.phpremains in the
web/because it's required by WP, but it only acts as a loader. The actual configuration files have been moved to
config/for better separation.
vendor/is where the Composer managed dependencies are installed to.
wp/is where WordPress core lives. It's also managed by Composer but can't be put under
vendordue to WP limitations.
