Roots is group of people making WordPress projects that help you build better sites. Originally just a WordPress starter theme, Roots is now a resource for anybody looking to modernize their WordPress development workflow.
The Roots starter theme was initially released to the public on March 28th, 2011. There are countless hours of development time that have been put in to the Roots Theme with over 70 people contributing to the project. We’re constantly updating to ensure best practices are always being used.
We released Bedrock, our WordPress stack, in December 2013. Bedrock combines Composer for dependency management, Capistrano for automated deployments, and Vagrant for server environment management.
