WP-CLI Packages: Supercharge Your WordPress Development
Jan 24, 2018 @ 11:55:59

The Delicious Brains site has a tutorial posted showing you how to supercharge your WordPress development with the help of WP-CLI packages.

I think most developers would agree that my-hacks.php. It is my favorite way to set up new WordPress sites, control WordPress with CRON, manage plugins, quickly test code, and a whole host of other tasks that are quicker and easier to complete via the CLI or a shell script.

“What,” you might ask, “could possibly be better than WP-CLI?”. “A lot of things…” I would reply [...] but then I might catch myself and realize that your question was probably scoped to WordPress development and related tools so I would cough loudly and continue, “cough I mean… Packages… For WP-CLI. WP-CLI Packages”

The post then goes on to talk about the WP-CLI package index and some of the packages they like to use including:

  • aaemnnosttv/wp-cli-login-command
  • binarygary/db-checkpoint
  • markri/wp-sec

Each includes a brief summary of what the package offers and a code example of it in use. The post ends with some unfortunate news, however - that the package index is essentially dead.
