Over the last couple of years I have had an occasional play around with the WP-CLI. The most in-depth was creating some scripts to work with Plesk Onyx. I realised the power and the potential, but once again other projects took me in a different direction! But I always knew that I would return because one of my loves is automation and creating scripts.
I am pleased to say that that moment has arrived. My plugin ‘WP Cloud Server’ is maturing nicely and the add-on modules for it are gradually increasing in number. As a result I have decided to integrate WP-CLI into the plugin allowing all of the server management to be performed at the command line! I also like the idea of using WP-CLI remotely to retrieve WordPress website information and display it in the control panel – it would allow the use of ‘WP Cloud Server’ to provide website management services.
So where to begin? Well. I think the best place to begin is to add functionality into the ‘DigitalOcean’ module. Allow Droplets to be created and managed from the command line! This would highlight any issues with the concept.
To be honest I can’t say that I am a WP-CLI expert, so I have decided to capture the journey on my website as in-depth tutorials. I hope over time that it will grow into a useful source of information and ideas! Subscribe to my newsletter to receive notifications of updates and releases!
