Sometimes you need data available to your scripts on the front end that you can normally only get from the server side of WordPress. Fortunately WordPress provides a relatively simple way to do this.
I’m a huge fan of the roots.io toolset for building and deploying high-quality WordPress sites. Part of that toolset is Trellis – a provisioning and deployment automation tool which typically requires a specific version of Ansible.
If you’re using Jetpack’s Publicize to automatically post to Google+ when publishing a WordPress post you may not realise Google+ shares your posts privately (that is, to your circles) by default.
MAMP is a simple to use tool and is often a staple in a Wordpress developer’s tools. When you start, you only have a single “domain”
http://localhost/ making working on multiple local sites a bit of a problem. Additional sites can be added by adding virtual hosts, this can seem a bit daunting if you’ve never done it before, but is actually quite simple.
