However, the process of setting up the project can be repetitive. To simplify this, we have created a boilerplate for both the plugin and a standalone app. We’ve configured the boilerplate setup using wp-scripts and wp-components to kickstart the project quickly.

However, there are cases where the core commands provided may not be sufficient, or developers may want to accomplish specific tasks. In such cases, WP-CLI enables developers to extend and write custom commands. We have used this feature extensively in various client projects, where bulk operations are required for…

But, managing seed data can be tricky, especially when updating individual tables without affecting the entire database. That’s where the iSeed package comes in – it simplifies the process by automating the generation of seeder files for individual tables.
