Nodejs is used for all the front-end build chain.

You need to have Node installed on your machine. The setup is not covered by this documentation.


Each release of Wordless is bound to a node version. It is declared inside package.json.

Wordless is tested with the enforced nodejs version and the shipped yarn.lock file. You’re free to change version as you wish, but you’ll be on your own managing all the dependancies.


In a Wordless theme you’ll find an .nvmrc file; you can use NVM node version manager to easily switch to the right node version.

Setup of NVM is not covered in this documentation.

Once set up, you can use

nvm use
