Tools Open Source PHP WordPress


A WordPress plugin aiming to help new contributors decide which make team/s to contribute to or join at Contributor Day.

Getting Started

Install node.js.

npm install

You are done.
Please not that you need to have webpack and webpack cli globally for ease of use.

npm run dev or npm run watch

Use npm run dev or npm run watch for on–the–fly updates of your code (templates, js, css)…
