When enqueuing assets you can either use ready made classes from the libs:

  • Eightshift_Libs\Enqueue\Enqueue_Admin class.
  • Eightshift_Libs\Enqueue\Enqueue_Blocks class.
  • Eightshift_Libs\Enqueue\Enqueue_Theme class.

or you can modify their functionalities by extending them.

These classes will handle JavaScript and CSS files of the project for different parts like: Admin area, Block Editor area of Theme area (front end).

The usage of any of these classes is optional, and you can use only what you need. Eightshift Boilerplate comes with all three classes already implemented.

Each of these classes implement actions that can be deregistered using the standard WordPress way.

Enqueue classes work in combination with webpack build of your project.

File names are defined inside class constants that can be changed by extending the class and providing the overrides for the constants. If you change the file names, you must provide changes to the webpack build process as well.
