Significantly cut theme development time down and supply your clients with a more professional product. By using the workflow taught in this course you will be able to charge more for your themes while taking less time to develop them. Profit through productivity.
This course details significant time savers, including how to skip setting up a server on your computer and eliminate the need to upload files & databases manually to your website host when the site is ready to launch. You'll be working directly on your website host so your client can preview your work and begin entering content if/when you choose to show them the address, which will bring the launch date (and pay day) forward.
What makes this workflow truly unique is that you can keep the benefits of working with files that are on your own computer. This course also teaches you how to set up powerful essentials including live reload and the basics of version control, plus how to mirror files to your computer for faster loading, code completion, searching and more.
We will also cover rapid HTML coding with the likes of Emmet, code templates and Twitter Bootstrap. We'll implement Bootstrap the way it is intended to be used: in conjunction with LESS and other technologies which will allow you to have forms, breadcrumbs, alerts & more styled in seconds without any need to edit the HTML of your chosen CMS. All of which will be mobile friendly and compatible across modern browsers.
It is a complete workflow and we'll go over the tools of the trade and how they piece together. As an added bonus every tool featured in this course is free for you to go ahead and download.
