Wordless

Wordless dramatically speeds up and enhances your custom themes creation, thanks to Sass, Compass, Haml and Coffeescript.

  1. Your development machine needs a ruby environment, and the compass, sprockets and coffee-script gem. See below to see how to setup WordPress on your machine using RVM;
  2. The production machine doesn't need any extra-dependencies, as all the compiled assets automatically get statically backend by Wordless;
  3. Download the Wordless plugin, drop it in the wp-content/plugins directory and enable it from the WP "Plugins" section;
  4. Enable the use of nice permalinks from the WP "Settings > Permalink" section. That is, we need the .htaccess file;
  5. Create a brand new Wordless theme directly within the WP backend, from the WP "Appearance > New Wordless Theme" section;
  6. Specify the path of your ruby executables, you can do it within the WP "Appearance > Wordless preferences" menu voice.

RVM (recommended setup)

It's recommended to use RVM to handle ruby gems. Type the following from your terminal:

rvm use 1.8.7
rvm gemset create wordless
rvm use 1.8.7@wordless
gem install sprockets compass coffee-script
rvm wrapper 1.8.7@wordless wordless compass ruby

Now you should be able to know the location of your RVM-wrapped ruby executables using which wordless_ruby and which wordless_compass. Write them down into the config/initializers/wordpress_preferences.php file.
