2. About The Project
Built upon ACF Pro, this is an alternative wordpress page-builder without all the injected extra code you have no idea the developer has deemed nessesary.
A light-weight solution that enables you to build pages the way you want to - with no constraints.
This is the base module that requires other plugins to run. For instance, the
rawcode plugin will allow
you to inject any code you want directly onto the page.
The beauty of it is that it allows you to create an organised foldered structure for your sections by using ACFs 'repeaters' and 'clones'.
Built with tailwind-css and SVGs as imagery in mind, this builder was created to allow me to keep the page sizes to a minimum for good lighthouse scores.
The page builder really only does the following things:
- Gives you access to the other page-builder plugins to place onto the page.
- Add classes into the body or page. (optional)
- Add code into the Header
- Add code into the Footer
- Add SVGs into the Footer
- Import and Export JSON representation of the page.
- Import and Export JSON representation of the SVGs.
The import/export functionality allows you to copy & paste the page or SVG data all in one.
2.2. Built With
This project was built with the following frameworks, technologies and software.
These are the steps to get up and running with this plugin.
- Clone the repo into your wordpress plugin folder
git clone https://github.com/IORoot/wp-plugin__page-builder ./wp-content/plugins/page-builder
- Activate the plugin.
Note: This plugin WILL disable the normal WYSIWYG builder you would normally see.
2.3.1. Theme Header
Your theme will need to include the following code into the header, below the
<?php wp_head(); do_action('page_builder_header_code'); ?>
This is so the plugin can inject any code you specify (CSS / Stylesheets) into the header.
2.3.2. Theme Footer
Similarly, the theme footer will require the following code, just ABOVE the
<?php do_action('page_builder_footer_code'); wp_footer(); ?>
The page-builder on it's own will not do anything other than turn off the default page builder, setup some hooks and initialise the import/export functionality.
The idea is that all functionality is plug-and-playable. Therefore you need to install any of the other page-builder plugins that extend it's ability.
Currently, there are the following plugins:
LondonParkour.com was built using these plugins for page-builder.
