Installable packages are listed in the Package Index.

wp package install

Installs a WP-CLI package.

wp package install <name|git|path|zip>

Packages are required to be a valid Composer package, and can be specified as:

  • Package name from WP-CLI's package index.
  • Git URL accessible by the current shell user.
  • Path to a directory on the local machine.
  • Local or remote .zip file.

Packages are installed to ~/.wp-cli/packages/ by default. Use the WP_CLI_PACKAGES_DIR environment variable to provide a custom path.

When installing a local directory, WP-CLI simply registers a reference to the directory. If you move or delete the directory, WP-CLI's reference breaks.

When installing a .zip file, WP-CLI extracts the package to ~/.wp-cli/packages/local/<package-name>.

OPTIONS

<name|git|path|zip>
	Name, git URL, directory path, or .zip file for the package to install.
	Names can optionally include a version constraint
	(e.g. wp-cli/server-command:@stable).

EXAMPLES

# Install the latest development version from the package index.
$ wp package install wp-cli/server-command
