Learning WordPress Devleopment

I’ve been getting the grasps of WP development using quite a few php files and one css file (style.css) to make my own WordPress templates. Currently making progress on developing a homepage and post/ single page template- now working on making it woocommerce compatible.

I’ve been hearing about SaaS super unsure on what it is. But should I be using it? If so, what does it actually replace, like what does saas do that I wouldn’t need to do elsewhere?

Also how can I get access to the files of other wp templates like blocksy or Astra as an example, I’m looking for some inspiration.

    In what context? Saas stands for “software as a service” – it’s unrelated to WordPress.

    Install the themes + demo on a local instance using LocalWP and look at how they’re built.

  2. If you are using twentytwentythree or later, you can customize your theme from within the FSE style section and export that as a theme to reuse.

  3. You mean sass, and no don’t use it. It’s outdated and generally only for boomers now. Just write css and use postcss to process it.

    After you learn css well enough you can graduate to something like tailwind since you now have the information to understand the abstractions.

  4. I think you’re talking about Sass (Syntactically Awesome Stylesheets), which is a CSS preprocessor. It’s used by many different CSS frameworks, including Bootstrap. Bootstrap, one of the most popular CSS frameworks, has a substantial market share. As of 2024, Bootstrap is used by 77.5% of websites using a CSS framework, which translates to 17.7% of all websites. Sass is indeed valuable to know; it’s regularly maintained and updated. It remains a powerful tool for modern web development, and its features are highly regarded by developers.
