Wordpress Command Line Installer

This is a command line downloader for Wordpress that downloads and extracts the latest version of Wordpress to the directory of your choosing.

How To Use


  • Composer (Local or global)

First, download the Wordpress downloader using Composer:

composer global require "rappasoft/wordpress-command-line-downloader"

Make sure to place the ~/.composer/vendor/bin directory (or the equivalent directory for your OS) in your PATH so the wordpress executable can be located by your system.

Once installed, the wordpress new command will create a fresh Wordpress installation in the directory you specify.

If you leave the directory out it will install in the current working directory.

For example:

wordpress new mywebsite

Will install in a new folder called mywebsite using the current working directory as the base.
