George Stephanis asked a question saying, “Possibly a silly question, and there’s likely an answer somewhere I’m just overlooking — but is there code somewhere that would enable running theme-check against themes just like — from the command line by pointing it at a directory? My brain’s been ticking on some workflow stuff, and I’m trying to think of ways to potentially run at least some of the more automated scanning stuff without actually loading it up in an environment.”

@otto42 replied saying, “If there isn’t, that wouldn’t be hard to add”. He added, “there might be a cli way added, haven’t looked recently”.

There was an issue in GitHub. But this is closed now. @kafleg suggested creating an issue, and George Stephanis created an issue in GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. We would like to check and help with this issue.

@shivashankerbhatta added, “This type of topics should be also raised on WordCamps and Meetups”.
