Websites are built with components.
The WPComponents script contains over 30 components which may be the building blocks of a WordPress website. It is born out of the fact that the same elements for different projects were required again and again. The installation and implementation of WP Components is described on GitHub.
The structure of WP Components
WP Components is made in a modular fashion and contains two types of WordPress elements: molecules and atoms. By using these elements, one can quickly develop a WordPress website using the desired components.
Molecules are larger sections of a site such as a header. Molecules can contain atoms. Atoms are single WordPress elements such as sharing buttons, breadcrumbs, images, titles and so forth.
WP Components can only be used with WordPress. Most of the elements have microdata and rich snippets included in their coding. The styling of the elements is minimal.
The WP Components script currently has the following WordPress molecules:
- Footer: a site footer.
- Header: a site header.
- Post Footer: the footer of a post or page.
- Post Header: the header of a post or page.
- Posts: a grid or list of posts.
- Slider: a slider with custom content.
And the following atoms:
- Archive Title
- Author (Post Author)
- Cart (WooCommerce)
- Content (Post or Page Content)
- Date (Post or Page Date)
- Share (Social Sharing)
- Social (Social Profiles)
- Title (Post or Page Title)
- Type (Post or Page Type)
Our Complete WordPress Script Collection
During the years, we found out that we were repeating the same code over and over in our WordPress development projects. The obvious thought came in mind: Why don’t we store these pieces of code in reusable scripts on GitHub? And so it happened, our repository was born.
