    Bedrock is an open source project made by Roots that you use as base for WordPress builds. It is a modern development workflow for WordPress that helps to improve security, performance, and scalability of your WordPress site. It provides a better folder structure, improved security, and helps you use modern development tools like Composer and NPM. It uses composer to install and manage WordPress plugins, allowing for easier updates.


    Composer is a tool for dependency management in PHP. It allows you to declare the libraries your project depends on and it will manage (install/update) your theme for you. It is used by Bedrock to manage WordPress core, plugins, and themes.
