In-Browser WordPress Tech Demos: WordPress Development with WordPress Playground

WordPress Playground was recently used at a hackathon to prototype three different ways of building WordPress plugins with very little setup and directly in the browser:

  • 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/ and PHPUnit in the browser
  • WordPress as a VS Code extension
  • Mobile pluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party editor

WP-CLI and PHPUnit in the browser

The first demo brings popular WordPress terminal tools and a code editor into the browser:

A significant challenge was executing shell commands in the browser. Although various browser-based Linux implementations were explored, none fully addressed the issue or were feasible within the limited time frame. Consequently, basic commands like ls, cd, and cat were manually implemented, along with the exposure of wp-cli and phpunit.

By the end, many wp-cli commands were running, phpunit tests were functional (although not all passed), and the code editor updated live WordPress files – all while working offline.

This project, built by @swissspidy and Florian Blaser, is currently being incubated in WordPress Playground Pull Request #161.

WordPress dev server as a Visual Studio Code extension

The second demo is a WordPress development server that you can start without ever installing MySQLMySQL MySQL is a relational database management system. A database is a structured collection of data where content, configuration and other options are stored. https://www.mysql.com/., PHPPHP The web scripting language in which WordPress is primarily architected. WordPress requires PHP 5.6.20 or higher, or an ApacheApache Apache is the most widely used web server software. Developed and maintained by Apache Software Foundation. Apache is an Open Source software available for free. web server. It works as a Visual Studio Code extension:

The primary challenge was understanding the concept of running PHP inside JavaScriptJavaScript JavaScript or JS is an object-oriented computer programming language commonly used to create interactive effects within web browsers. WordPress makes extensive use of JS for a better user experience. While PHP is executed on the server, JS executes within a user’s browser. https://www.javascript.com/., which differs from typical PHP or Node.js development. This VS Code extension provides a single-click development environment, potentially benefiting WordCamps, Learn.wp.org courses, and various workshops.

This project was built by @danielbachhuber, Adrian Stobbe, Mohannad Rahmani, and @ebinnion and lives in a working GitHub repository created by Daniel. Eventually, it may be moved into the WordPress Playground repository.

While this extension is highly experimental, it is publicly available in Visual Studio Marketplace for everyone to try. The code lives in a GitHub repository and is intended for migrationMigration Moving the code, database and media files for a website site from one server to another.

If you have experience with VS code extensions and would like to help develop them, your help is most welcome!

Mobile editor

It’s worth noting that Sandpack + WebContainers emerged as a suitable open-source alternative:

This setup allows for building WordPress blocks in the browser, on mobile devices, and even offline. Most npm packages are also supported. It’s believed that this could empower a vast number of new internet users to create within the WordPress ecosystem, even without a desktop device.

The Stackblitz example is publicly available here.

  • @get_dave suggested including more of a triage session and wondered whether that would interfere with @ndiego‘s efforts.
  • @poena highlighted meeting time of day as a key blockerblocker A bug which is so severe that it blocks a release..
  • @ndiego noted that the triage sessions are also suffering from low attendance. He agreed that we should consider ways to improve the value of the chat.
  • @danielbachhuber suggested a better form of async meeting/scrubbing.
  • @danielbachhuber also highlighted the problem that it’s hard to get product decisions and feedback if you are not:
