Export to Jekyllfrom the
If you're having trouble with your web server timing out before the export is complete, or if you just like terminal better, you may enjoy the command-line tool.
It works just like the plugin, but produces the zipfile on STDOUT:
php jekyll-export-cli.php > jekyll-export.zip
Alternatively, if you have WP-CLI installed, you can run:
wp jekyll-export > export.zip
The WP-CLI version will provide greater compatibility for alternate WordPress environments, such as when
wp-content isn't in the usual location.
