Helpers

Helpers are framework utility functions you can use anywhere. They are functions that run on the global scope.

td($value)

This function prints a $value and terminate the PHP process immediately by calling the wp_die() function. Useful for debugging.

$value = 'A string value';

td($value);

tp($value)

This function prints a $value. Useful for debugging.

$value = 42;

tp($value);

themosis_assets()

This function returns the URL path of the themosis-theme assets directory. Useful if you want to point to an asset without using the Asset class.

// http://.../wp-content/themes/themosis-theme/app/assets/images/favicon.ico
$iconUrl = themosis_assets().'/images/favicon.ico';

Note: In a subfolder multisite installation, this function will check if the themosis_theme_assets() function exists. If so, will use it in order to get the proper URL. The themosis_theme_assets() function is available since release 1.2.0 inside the functions.php file of your theme.
