BBEdit WordPress Clippings

This project is officially dead. If you haven't already surmised that. If you're interested in taking it over let me know. I've since moved on to PHPStorm for the majority of my development and just don't get anything back out of the time spent maintaining this.

For WordPress Version: 3.1

This is a Clipping bundle for BBEdit 9+ to help make working with WordPress (hopefully) a lot easier. These clippings will be maintained for the current version of WordPress. No conscious effort will be maintained to provide backward compatibility.

Function completion is enabled under the PHP scope.


Clippings are provided for all functions present in the WordPress standard distribution. No attempt is made at intelligent sorting nor is there a distinction at this time between regular functions and class methods. I think a Javascript function even crept in there somewhere.

Actions and Filters

Clippings are also provided for all the Actions and Filters contained within WordPress. The Action and Filter names for selection are formatted as add_action-action_name and add_filter-filter_name. For those Actions and Filters that pass through more than 1 parameter the number of parameters will part of the function completion. If there is only one parameter as part of the Action or Filter then the parameters parameter is left off.

Carrington Functions

If you're doing hard-core Carrington development these extra function helpers should come in handy.


Copy the WordPress.php folder in to your ~/Library/Application Support/BBEdit/Clippings folder and restart BBEdit.
