Who’s doing the four-day work week in WordPress? • What good sources for professional development have you found? • Getting your implementation intentions right.
This week was all about revisiting and continuing conversations that have special value and maybe for that reason tend to continue on with a life of their own. Tom Willmot dropped a fine Twitter thread about the challenge all enterprise WordPress agencies face. This came in response to Magne Ilsas‘ featured post here last week, The WordPress Enterprise Paradox. In a similar theme of industry peer cooperation, Eric Karkovack asks if WordPress product owners and developers can see a common interest in “voluntary standards.” Could this clean up the plugin market? James Farmer thinks the WordPress business community can do more for itself too — by sharing data. In Post Status Slack we’re learning the tricks and trials of ranking in the WordPress.org plugin repository. How about plugin telemetry? Learn from the voices of experience.
Carl Alexander is building a serverless DevOps platform for WordPress, which he is calling Ymir — you can watch a video explaining it further. Carl compares his project to Laravel Vapor because “Ymir isn’t a WordPress host. You will have full access and control over everything. You’ll also be responsible for your AWS bill.” There’s…
Mark Jaquith wrote a WordPress/Jetpack Driver for Laravel Valet.
Gilbert Pellegrom takes a look behind the scenes to see how Laravel Valet works and what is going on in the background when you run Valet commands.
Laravel Vapor, a full-featured serverless management and deployment dashboard for PHP/Laravel powered by AWS, was recently announced. Features include on-demand auto-scaling with “zero server maintenance.”
You may know Peter Suhm as the man behind WP Pusher, a plugin that lets you securely deploy your plugins and themes directly from GitHub, Bitbucket or GitLab to any WordPress site on any type of hosting.
ValetPress uses Laravel Valet and WP-CLI to quickly install and configure WordPress sites for local development and testing.
It’s funny to me seeing how WordPress often wants to mirror functionality of other platforms, and sometimes you see other platforms wanting to mirror WordPress. Gabor Javorsky started an interesting discussion in Slack around a Laravel project to add filter and action style events to Laravel.
Eventy is a Laravel package by Tor Morten Jensen that brings WordPress-style actions and filters to your Laravel app.
The creator of Laravel, Taylor Otwell, announced new ways to support Laravel using Patreon. Companies are now able to opt in to perks (assuming they pay at the right sponsorship levels) such as a priority Slack channel, “individual monthly video conferences,” and other things. It’s certainly an interesting way to support an open-source project. Laravel…
I’m going to have a much more complete review soon, but I’ve been testing Metorik — a new and in beta WooCommerce analytics SaaS from Bryce Adams — and it is absolutely amazing. It’s the most promising WordPress tool I’ve used in ages, and I’m already addicted to it. It is a Laravel Spark app built…
Jo Murgel shows how you can setup Laravel Homestead for the purpose of local WordPress development.
Eric Barnes — creator of Laravel News — posts how he uses WordPress as a backend for his Laravel application. He rebuilt the Laravel News site using WordPress as his publishing interface. This is precisely the kind of thing that I’d love to see more examples of (there’s a list of V2 API implementations if you know of more)….
Ashley Rich over at Delicious Brains relates some lessons learned from building WP Scanner, a WordPress-centric web app. The app was built on Laravel with Spark, and there’s a WordPress plugin that is installed that communicates with WP Scanner’s servers. Ashley mentions some of the third-party services he used. His advice about optimizing too early is…
Tom McFarlin proposes some interesting and practical benefits to employees who work for WordPress (or development/coding) companies. Tom’s first suggestion about a subscription to a particular WordPress news service seems like a great way to start off the list 🙂 . Also don’t forget to check out Tom’s guide to using Laravel Valet for WordPress development.
