Not official Beans 2.0 alpha

Beans by far the best theme I’ve ever worked with. As stated if you don’t see the magic you have not looked deep enough.

Currently Disnel, Yaidel and I are working on making this framework even stronger.

Not an Official Release

This is not an official Beans release. Currently it is simply work in progress to be presented to the Beans community for consideration.


  • Decoupled Beans from uikit2
  • Created a front-end framework plugin for UiKit 2 (Legacy)
  • Created a front-end framework plugin for UiKit 3.2
  • Added Command line support (Not Documented: but type wp beans)
  • Added Onboarding (Not Documented: See Admin -> Dashboard -> Beans -> Onboarding)
  • Moved Layout to sidebar (Not Documented either but notice the beans icon on posts)
  • Create a demo site that is easy to onboard.

Internal Plan / Roadmap

  • Refactor several internal sites from UiKit 2 to UiKit 3
  • Add configuration for theme support.
  • Add better support for Gutenberg Color and styles.
  • Re-add unit tests.
  • Convert Bean’s main site into UiKit 3.
  • Update the relevant documentation.
  • Add Gutenberg Blocks specific for UiKit 3
  • Move Beans from 2.0 alpha to release.
  • Add a Bootstrap specific Front end framework

Quick Start

Follow the steps in the onboarding which gives instructions on downloading the theme and plugins.
