 Setting up a development environment can be a pain and is probably a major
 brake to contributions. Thanks to [https://developer.wordpress.org/block-

 **I've just tested it: it's really awesome and we should include it asap
 into our repository**.

 What's needed ?

 - [https://nodejs.org/en/download/ Node.js (most of us already have it!)]

 - The attached patch 😉

 When, you need to stop, simply do `npm run wp-env stop`
