WP-CLI is a super useful tool, which I use on a daily basis, and I wish more people knew about. Gladly, there is now “What Is WP-CLI? A Beginner’s Guide“, which explains what it is, how to install it, how to use it, and where to go from there.
WP-CLI project – a command line interface to WordPress – announces the release of v1.0.0. After 5 years of development, the tool is rock solid and stable (that is being affected to a degree by the frequent releases of the WordPress itself).
There are some new features and a tonne of improvements in this release, including, as the major version bump indicates, some backward compatibility breaking changes.
If you are involved with WordPress projects, this tool is an absolute must have! Whether you are automating your deployments, doing some testing, or setting up and configuring WordPress instances on a variety of servers. It will save you time and make you life much much easier. Check it out!
(At work, we are using it as part of our project-template-wordpress setup, which is our go-to repository for initializing the new WordPress-based projects.)
