Whippet

This project is a framework for building WordPress applications that eases deployment, plugin management and build steps. Whippet is part of dxw's work to build and host WordPress-based applications that conform more closely to 12-factor principles.

Whippet has a few basic goals:

  1. Allowing proper build steps to take place, that automate build tasks both during development and deployment
  2. Properly managing plugins and themes, allowing them to be version controlled and easily updated
  3. Managing the creation of releases, including rollbacks
  4. Automating the generation of commonly required objects like new applications and new themes

Whippet can manage plugins and themes and releases.

During development, whippet can be used in conjunction with wpc.

Whippet is under development and should be considered alpha software. If you use it, we'd love to know what you think.
