In trying to figure out how to build better WordPress sites faster, we at Cornershop have developed an approach that leverages WP-CLI to dynamically inject configurable, pre-written code (HTML, PHP, JS and SASS) into our in-house starter theme. This novel approach speeds up our custom development work by letting us quickly assemble oft-used functionality without littering our theme with superfluous code.

Come learn about the decision-making that led us to go down this road, and see exactly how we’ve gone about building our extensible framework as a plugin that extends WP-CLI. Whether you’re an agency or a solo freelancer, hopefully seeing our approach can lead to fruitful thinking on how you can deliver the most value to your clients.
