    This is also possible by adding `define( ‘JETPACK_DEV_DEBUG’, true);` to your wp-config.php file.

    Great trick, it’s going to make life easier for clients who do not have a wordpress.com account.

    This is awesome, I always hated connecting to WordPress.com, specifically as I wasn’t using WordPress.com.

    Do you know of anything that does or doesn’t work in JetPack once you unplug it? I’m thinking about stats mainly.

      Stats does require a connection. Here is a list of modules that require a connection to wordpress.com:

      Spelling and Grammar
      Jetpack Comments
      Enhanced Distribution
      JSON API
      Likes
      Monitor
      Notifications
      Photon
      Post by Email
      Publicize
      Related Posts
      WP.me Shortlinks
      Jetpack Single Sign On
      WordPress.com Stats
      Subscriptions
      VaultPress
      VideoPress

    This is a very good idea, I’m using it on my clients’ websites for a long time. Even I have created a similar plugin, which is already in the WP repo for some time:

    The plugin works however i also tested the code you embedded in this post which uses plugins_loaded and it didn’t work for me from functions.php.

    What worked was using the filter on its own in functions.
