    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.

    Aart Geys: WordPress website onderhoud met wp-cli

    WordCamp Antwerp 2018Speaker: Aart Geys

    March 30, 2018 — Introductie voor beginners met enkele concrete praktijkvoorbeelden die verduidelijken hoe het gebruik van de commandolijn het dagelijks leven van iedere WordPress gebruiker makkelijker kan maken zodat er meer tijd overblijft voor de leuke dingen. 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 😉

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

    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.

    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.

    Alain Schlesser: Controlling WordPress Through The Command Line – Introduction to WP-CLI

    WordCamp Berlin 2017Speaker: Alain Schlesser

    May 22, 2017 — If you manage more than one WordPress website, you might have experienced situations where you needed to do the exact same operation on multiple websites. If you were clicking through the sites one-by-one and thinking that there should be a better way to manage what you are trying to do, I’ve got good news: there actually is!

    WP-CLI lets you control your WordPress sites through the command line, allowing you to do any operation across an arbitrary number of sites. This can save you minutes, hours, days or even weeks of work.

    I’ll start with a small introduction to the command line itself, and then continue with very easy and common scenarios where WP-CLI can save you large amounts of time with little to no effort.
