• WP-AppKit themes are based on Javascript.
  • All app themes have a functions.js file which is the entry point for your theme’s Javascript (e.g. event bindings, DOM manipulation, dialog with app core …).
  • The path to functions.js is: wp-content/themes-wp-appkit/[your-theme]/js/functions.js.
  • Inserting Javascript directly in templates (e.g. single.html) should be done with caution. Simple code is fine (like string concatenations, conditional statements, component content retrieval…), all within UnderscoreJS template engine tags <% … %>, but DOM manipulation has to be avoided.

      //Launch app content refresh when clicking your refresh button :
                  $('#my-feedback').html('Content updated successfully :)').show();

You may also include Javascript libraries using RequireJS dependency management (the first “define” line of the above example). More on that here.

Happy coding!
