We have extensive developer documentation available in our GitHub Docs. The basic process is to:

  2. Run composer install
  3. Install WordPress

ProudCity is built on the shoulders of open source giants. We would not be possible without WordPress, and all of the open source projects it depends on, BootstrapAngularKubernetes and a host of other open source projects. We are also indebted to a number of open source WordPress plugins that are used throughout the ProudCity distribution.
