Today, I’ve been invited to give a talk at WordCamp Seattle titled “WordPress at the Command Line: An Introduction to wpshell and wp-cli”.
It’s exactly this — an introduction, because I hope to inspire further exploration of interacting with WordPress through the command line. Similar to Scribu, I’ve found “the keyboard is faster than the mouse” for many tasks, and that developing proficiency with the command line has dramatically increased my effectiveness as a programmer.
So, I hope you take the time to check out wpshell and wp-cli (and ack, for that matter). Think critically about how they can improve your workflow, and let me know what you script up!
