A Library of WP-CLI Commands for BuddyPress

wp-cli-bpBuddyPress developers, here’s something new for your toolbox. Boone Gorges has created a WP-CLI community package of BuddyPress commands. This collection includes just a few commands that have helped him with BuddyPress development but he welcomes your pull requests.

So far, the commands include:

  • bp activate — Activate a component.
  • bp activity_create — Create a single activity item.
  • bp activity_generate — Generate a large number of random activity items.
  • bp deactivate — Deactivate a component.
  • bp group_create — Create new BuddyPress groups.
  • bp group_add_member — Add a member to a BuddyPress group.
  • bp member_generate — Create lots of site members, with the proper BP metadata.

Setting up a BuddyPress test site can be fairly time consuming, especially if you need enough demo data to properly test all of the components. The WP-CLI commands included here will get your site populated with plenty of random activity items, groups and site members, including the proper BP metadata, in a matter of seconds. This is a big time saver for testing BuddyPress core, themes and plugins.

The BuddyPress community package can be found on Github and is also listed on the WP-CLI package index, along with other community packages to improve your workflow.
