@hankchizljaw @meredevelopment is it easy to get wp running now locally? Like npm install wordpress easy?

@ben @hankchizljaw yes, kind of, with WP-CLI. Once that’s installed, it can be a few keystrokes kind of thing. Hardest part is still serving it and creating the DB. So... not `npm install wordpress` but close. Or there’s the Composer approach

@gilles @hankchizljaw @meredevelopment that would be handy for the db aspect for lil' ol me. I've not actually tried any methods yet but probably will do later…

@ben You can easily find a few references, including on docker.
I just tried the docker-compose.yml from It worked like a charm in about 5 min (just remove, where you see it). @hankchizljaw @meredevelopment

PS: their new editor, Gutenberg, is amazing. I took the next 15 minutes giving it a spin.

@gilles @hankchizljaw @meredevelopment thanks for all this folks. Ironically I only need to commit about 3 lines of code but obviously need to run the build 😂

@hankchizljaw @gilles @meredevelopment that is exactly why I need to do it the right way this time :D

@hankchizljaw @ben @gilles @meredevelopment I don't know much about this kind of thing, but from this reply it seems like some people just want to watch the world burn! 🔥 Hein? No? ;)

@eloisa @ben @gilles @meredevelopment you never done a YOLO plugin update? (strongly wouldn’t recommend)

@gilles @hankchizljaw @ben @meredevelopment there or in doing it with a backup? Got confused a bit. In my case, I prefer to not make changes I can't undo, especially near weekends with stuff that isn't mine. :x
