You can find my
dotfiles here at https://github.com/jmslbam/dotfiles.
I use WordPress to build websites which use PHP7, Git, Composer, NPM, Gulp, SASS/Less and Twig via Clarkson.
Some of the plugin I prefer to work with are WooCommerce, Gravity Forms, Advanced Custom Fields, FacetWP, SearchWP, iDeal, MLP or WeGlot. When not building custom build sites I use Elementor with and a lightweight or decent premium theme.
For Image optimisation I use ShortPixel and for all other front-end optimalisations I use WP Rocket which is great!
To deploy website in 1-click I use DeployHQ in combination with SSH.
Other tools that I use are UpTime to monitor if sites are still running.
