Puppet WP-CLI

  • Puppet WP-CLI - This module enables the easy use of WP CLI to control your WordPress site through Puppet manifests. It provides an easy abstraction for common WP CLI commands as well as installing the WP CLI binaries as needed.


WordPress Tools

Run the script from a folder where you'd like your dev site to live. Name the project. Slug is used throughout the build in your theme, function prefixes, etc. Optionally connect it to a private BB repo. Automatically builds local DB based on given inputs. Installs latest version of WP via WP-CLI. Creates a local-config file and modifies wp-config credentials if given for "live credentials". Installs developer plugins. ACF, Developer, WP_Debug, etc. If you fork this project you can easily change the ones I've chosen. Optionally (recommended) installs and activates a custom _s theme. This theme generates Title, description, and prefixes all functions. Saving tons of initial work.
