HooksHooks In WordPress theme and development, hooks are functions that can be applied to an action or a Filter in WordPress. Actions are functions performed when a certain event occurs in WordPress. Filters allow you to modify certain functions. Arguments used to hook both filters and actions look the same. conceptually are very similar to WordPress actions. WP-CLIWP-CLI WP-CLI is the Command Line Interface for WordPress, used to do administrative and development tasks in a programmatic way. The project page is http://wp-cli.org/ https://make.wordpress.org/cli/ hooks
are typically called before WordPress is loaded.

WP-CLI hooks include:

  • before_add_command:<command> – Before the command is added.
  • after_add_command:<command> – After the command was added.
  • before_invoke:<command> (1) – Just before a command is invoked.
  • after_invoke:<command> (1) – Just after a command is invoked.
  • find_command_to_run_pre – Just before WP-CLI finds the command to run.
  • before_registering_contexts (1) – Before the contexts are registered.
  • before_wp_load – Just before the WP load process begins.
  • before_wp_config_load – After wp-config.php has been located.
  • after_wp_config_load – After wp-config.php has been loaded into scope.
  • after_wp_load – Just after the WP load process has completed.
  • before_run_command (3) – Just before the command is executed.

The parentheses behind the hook name denote the number of arguments
being passed into the hook. For such hooks, the callback should return
the first argument again, making them work like a WP filterFilter Filters are one of the two types of Hooks https://codex.wordpress.org/Plugin_API/Hooks. They provide a way for functions to modify data of other functions. They are the counterpart to Actions. Unlike Actions, filters are meant to work in an isolated manner, and should never have side effects such as affecting global variables and output..

WP-CLI commands can create their own hooks with WP_CLI::do_hook().

If additional arguments are passed through the WP_CLI::do_hook() call,
these will be passed on to the callback provided by WP_CLI::add_hook().

# `wp network meta` confirms command is executing in multisite context.
WP_CLI::add_command( 'network meta', 'Network_Meta_Command', array(
   'before_invoke' => function ( $name ) {
       if ( !is_multisite() ) {
           WP_CLI::error( 'This is not a multisite installation.' );
) );

Internal APIAPI An API or Application Programming Interface is a software intermediary that allows programs to interact with each other and share data in limited, clearly defined ways. documentation is generated from the WP-CLI codebase on every release.
