Sync WordPress installations across local, ftp, sftp and ssh hosts
NOTE: I changed the name of the default branch from
main. To reflect the changes in your local repository, run the following commands:
git fetch --all git remote set-head origin -a git branch --set-upstream-to origin/main git branch -m master main
NOTE: Due to the dependency on
schema, wpsync currently doesn’t work with Python versions greater than 3.7. A new wpsync version with fewer dependencies is in the making.
wpsync uses the pipenv package/dependency manager, so make sure you have it installed.
git clone https://github.com/em4nl/wpsync.git cd wpsync pipenv install
Now you should be able to run wpsync from its own directory with
poetry run wpsync.
To make it accessible from everywhere, I usually make a shell script that I place in
#!/bin/sh # change the path to wherever you cloned wpsync to. # the $@ in the end passes your arguments through to wpsync cd "$HOME/wpsync" && pipenv run wpsync $@
Don’t forget to make the script executable (
chmod +x ~/bin/wpsync)!
(I use this workaround because I have no idea how to install a python package properly.)
This project contains some (PHP) code from different third parties that is subject to different licenses. The rest of the code that is mine I intend to put under the MIT license. I’ll have to sort this out.
