I'm trying to get my hands on Beans as quickly as I can. My first project will be rewrite my website's theme using Beans. The current theme source code is available here.
Beans has a lot of documentation but after having the child theme up and running on my machine, I'm feeling a bit lost. I know that I have to drop stuff in functions.php, to see the magic happens, but what things should I add/do first? I haven´t found any real world example that quickly explains how to start developing a new website theme.
Anyone who developed a theme for a website using beans has made the source code available? That would help a lot!
ThemeButler is a good start. Download their child themes and start to customize it. Their child theme is owesome.
@Pandhu Wee thanks for your reply.
So nobody has a public repo with a real website developed with beans? 🙁
Hey, I have shared my code here: https://github.com/gmmedia/j0e-crimson-red
@Pandhu Wee, @Jochen Gererstorfer, thanks a lot guys!
Hi Eduardo and welcome to Beans Community 🙂
I would also suggest to check this page pointing to various ressources Paal has found (some already mentioned above) 😉 Lots of cool stuff and full on websites available source code available. If you feel a bit more adventurous, check our more complex stuff like Alex's RMA repo for RMA website 🙂
You will aslo find a lot of answers and on this forum. Feel free to ask question when you get stuck, we will gladly help you!
Regarding your private message asking if they are tutorials available, I can officially say it out loud that it is our biggest priority right now. Beans has proven to be successful since it was launched a bit over a year ago. It is at a very robust state and the number one request right now is for video/written tutorials to smoothen the onboard. Only those who were really dedicated to find the magic under the hood (true code Ninja warriors lol) made it so far 🙂 So it is in the pipeline for sure, but the truth is that it takes time and we are expecting to release some tuts in the first quarter 2017.
In the mean time, we are happy to have you in the community and help you out on the forum!
Thanks for tour reply and resources! The RMA website seems to be exactly what I was after.
Keep up the good work!
you can also look this one : https://bitbucket.org/alexadark/cozy , demo : http://cozy.webstantly.com/
this site never goes live because of a bad client.
And here is the repo to my own site : https://bitbucket.org/alexadark/alexaspalato http://alexandraspalato.com/
Soon i will publish my advanced starter theme, which include a tweak to enjoy source maps and css injection trough codekit (gulp or grunt will work also) just need to find the time!!!
I have other ones, if you wnat, just need to make them public.
Too bad 🙁 I really like your Cozy design
Worse client experience in my life 🙁
But i will make a theme with it, and make it even look better.
Publishing themes for beans is on my 2017 schedule!
Hi Alexandra, Thanks a lot to make your source code available! I'll dig into this stuff asap!
I'm looking for your site source code right now.
Really nice idea to put all the functionality in a separate plugin 🙂 What's the meaning of the wst_ prefix?
Webstantly as the name of my first website, so i took the habit to prefix with wst_
