  • Marco Chiesi: Chi ha paura della command-line?

    WordCamp Rome 2018Speaker: Marco Chiesi

    April 16, 2019 — Negli ultimi decenni le interfacce uomo-macchina dei sistemi informatici si sono evolute incessantemente con l’obiettivo di rendere l’interazione con gli utenti sempre più semplice e intuitiva.

    Ci sono però ambiti specifici in cui l’interfaccia a “riga di comando” si dimostra tutt’oggi uno strumento insostituibile. Ne è la dimostrazione il crescente successo del progetto WP-CLI, supportato ufficialmente da WordPress.

    Non è indispensabile essere programmatori o sistemisti per trarre un vantaggio diretto e tangibile dall’utilizzo di strumenti basati su riga di comando. Questo talk, dopo una rapida introduzione sull’argomento, presenterà una carrellata di esempi pratici e di semplice applicazione, in cui l’uso della command-line può far risparmiare tantissimo tempo.

  • Dwayne McDaniel: WP-CLI: Don’t Fear The Command Line

    WordCamp Miami 2018Speaker: Dwayne McDaniel

    January 24, 2019 — It’s time to make the robots do all the things we can make them do. Machines can do just about anything as long as you give them the properly formed instructions. Fortunately for us WordPress allows us to give these instructions in an easy to learn and very robust manner called The WP-CLI. It is the fastest way to install, active and update any theme, plugin or just about anything else in your WordPress site.
    In this presentation I will demonstrate a simple install script that will have a fully functioning, customized WP website in about the same time than it normally takes download the WordPress.zip file. We will also look for how third party tools and hosts are leveraging the WP-CLI to make your life as a developer even easier.

  • Alex Centeno: Save 15 minutes or more on WordPress a day: Intro to the Command Line for administrators

    WordCamp Raleigh 2018Speaker: Alex Centeno

    June 11, 2018 — In the life of every WordPress administrator, saving a few seconds here and there can make a big difference at the end of the day.

    We have heard of the command line before, tools like Bash, SSH and WP-CLI are considered too complex for the average administrator.

    In this introduction, we will take an introductory look at these tools in a language that administrators can understand and in a way that we can start using them right away.

    We will look at topics like:

    1. Connecting to a remote server via SSH.
    2. Executing simple WP-CLI commands to create fast database backups, export a list of users, or “search and replace” for a string on a website without the need of plugins.
    2. Creating and using simple scripts in bash.

Het leven is nu eenmaal meer dan website onderhoud alleen. Als beginnende WordPress gebruikers na de voordracht al niet onmiddellijk naar huis snellen om wp-cli uit te proberen dan hoop ik tenminste dat ik hun mogelijke angst voor de commandolijn een beetje kleiner heb kunnen maken 😉

    WordCamp Seattle 2017Speaker: Kailey Lampert

    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.

    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.
