Kailey Lampert: Don’t Be Afraid Of The Command Line

Continue the discussion


March 8, 2018

The command line is a very powerful tool that you can use for all sorts of things. But the terminal can be a little scary if you’ve never been there before.

Let’s demystify it a bit and go over:

what you’re looking at,
some basic commands that’ll help you get around, and
a glimpse of some more advanced commands that can be handy to have in your toolbox.

Equipped with the basics, we’ll then learn about a powerful WordPress tool: WP-CLI. This won’t be an in-depth developer discussion, but a demo of what it can do and why you should be excited to try it out.

Note: Sorry, but this will be based on Mac/Unix. Windows has some exceptions that won’t be covered.
