Wonderful, restorative long weekend in Victoria with Leah and her grandparents. Highlights: Saturday salon, lots of sleeping, morning walks to Moka Coffee, bananagrams, reading on the beach, and watching (almost) the first season of Breaking Bad.
Spent a long time thinking about my role in the WordPress community too. Wrote a pretty angsty post this morning that didn’t end up now I wanted it to. Still not sure how to solve the problems I see.

This past Friday, after months of work and then two weeks of hard work, we launched a Premium version of WP Remote. The new feature list includes:
- Automatic backups to WP Remote, or Dropbox or your own S3 account.
- Daily email summaries of what’s been happening on your sites.
- Ability to install, activate, deactivate, and delete themes and plugins.
- Automatic core, theme, and plugin updates.
- History now logs important actions happening within WordPress, including when a theme is switched, an administrator logs in, etc.
WP-CLI version 0.12 released. Check out
–prompt, a new global argument for interactively running commands.
Boarding Delta 178 to fly off to Amsterdamn for the week (and then WordCamp Europe). Traded my exit row first class for 17G, which has a power outlet. What a concept! Looking forward to 10 hours of uninterrupted hacking…
WP Remote strives to make it much easier to manage your WordPress sites. This week, Joe and I are in Portland to build a Premium version. Being the developers we are, our first order of business was to completely rewrite the API, and make it available for public consumption.
We’d love for you to
break it try it out. The free endpoints allow you to update core, themes, and plugins, download an archive of the entire site, and access a log of the actions you’ve performed on the site. Our Premium version lets you install, activate, deactivate and delete themes and plugins, and enable automatic backups, with more to come.
Feel free to write scripts that use the API, or build a new interface on top of it (our application is built entirely on the API). We’ve also created WP Remote CLI for you, a WP-CLI command to access WP Remote. Our goal is feature parity with WP-CLI, plus more. My favorite command right now:
wp --site-id=31 remote-site download
Because Premium isn’t launched yet, shoot us an email and we’d be happy to enable Premium endpoints for your site.
Oh yeah — Human Made is hiring for a product-focused frontend developer. If you know someone who might fit the bill, please send them our way. Bonus points if they pitch us with something they’ve built on the API.
Config-Driven WordPress at PDXWP. Pretty bummed I had to miss this talk.

How I failed: Six lessons learned. Wonderful set of insights from Tim O’Reilly. Number four is a very hard problem to solve.
Working on a project with lots of separate Git repos? Create a master repo, add each repo as a submodule, and
git submodule foreach git checkout dev. If you’re working on a feature that spans multiple repos, simply use the same branch name for each repo. Can’t believe I didn’t think about this before.
