3.2 Preparing Our IDE

Throughout this course, we're going to be using [Coda] as our IDE; however, the code that we'll be writing is agnostic to the editor that's being used.

So if you prefer Vim, Sublime Text, TextMate, Visual Studio, and any of the other popular IDEs, then feel free to use them when following along, as well.

In the lesson, we go through the process of creating a skeleton for the WordPress theme we'll be developing. We'll be creating:

  • A theme directory
  • The necessary templates
  • The necessary stylesheets

And we'll be filling out and discussing information related to what goes into making a theme.
