How do you deal with daily repetitive tasks such as add_action(), add_filter(), admin notices, etc.. in your WordPress projects? Probably by manually rewriting the same things over and over again like I did. Wouldn't it be nice if you could reduce the amount of code you had to write for those tasks?
Imagine you’re working on a project and you have a series of tasks that you regularly perform. Examples of such tasks could be concatenation and minification. Grunt aims to speed up such tasks ( plus many more ) and automate them for you.
During my 6+ years of coding I’ve changed quite a few code editors. In the early days when I started web development I used Dreamweaver. As I started to learn more about web development, I quickly realized Dreamweaver wasn’t good anymore.
I’ve been working on WP User Manager for nearly a year now ( first code commit was February 17 2015 ). During development I quickly started running into those things that add up to a lot of time wasted.
As a WordPress developer I find myself continuously installing, deleting and updating many WordPress installations on my local development environment. This is where WP-CLI comes handy. WP-CLI is a simple command line tool that helps you in managing WordPress installations and perform many WordPress related tasks like installing, updating, exporting and much more.
