A while ago I released Modern WordPress Website (MWW), a small MVC framework for WordPress development, which aims to provide a Laravel-like experience, with all the power of the WordPress ecosystem.

Modern WordPress Website is looking for contributors and beta testers, help us bring WordPress to modern development standards.

If you have any questions or comments, ask here and I'll answer.

About Modern WordPress Website

Modern WordPress Website (MWW) is a modern way of building WordPress websites.
Simple and powerful, it's a great skeleton to bootstrap a new WordPress project.

  • MVC in WordPress.
  • Simple route engine with native WordPress functions.
  • Modern, yet simple PHP.
  • PSR-4 Autoloading.
  • Integrated with Acceptance, Functional, Integration and Unit tests (Thanks to Luca Tume, from wp-browser)
  • Installs as a mu-plugin

Modern WordPress Website (MWW) is great for experienced PHP developers using WordPress, and for intermediate developers who want to take their skills to the next level.

  • Run git clone wp-content/mu-plugins in the root folder of a clean WordPress installation
