Improved developer workflow
WordPress VIP makes your development team more productive. By automating key developer workflows, providing fantastic tooling, and integrating with tools developers already know and love, we make developing on WordPress easy.
Integrated version control
Every WordPress VIP application comes with a fully integrated GitHub code repository. Application code is hosted there and deployed to each environment when code is pushed to specified branches. WordPress VIP can also integrate with GitLab and Bitbucket.
CI and CD
WordPress VIP supports continuous integration / continuous deployment practices. It integrates with popular tools like CircleCI with the included GitHub repo. Easily run automated unit tests, integration tests, and inspection of code quality.
Manage PROD, PREPROD, DEV, or UAT environments. Use Git branches to easily target deployments to specific environments within WordPress VIP. Easily replicate production data and media between production and non-production environments for debugging and testing.
Easy deployment and rollback
With WordPress VIP it is easy to deploy code into production in seconds. If a problem is detected, it’s just as easy to quickly rollback to a previous version.
Powerful Command Line Interface (CLI)
WordPress VIP makes it easy to manage your environment through a simple but powerful CLI. Developers can easily update the site, copy down production content to a local developer site, or even set system variables.
Local development environment
WordPress VIP provides a local development environment, ideal for creating your own sandbox for development and testing. WordPress VIP makes it easy to pull down production content for testing with the latest updates whenever you need.
All management actions are logged both for an organization and a specific application. If problems arise it’s easy to determine possible root causes and resolve them quickly.
Controlled deployment via GitHub
WordPress VIP puts you in control of code rollouts. Unauthorized end users are restricted from deploying plugins and/or themes directly from wp-admin. All submissions also go through a code analysis final check before going live.
WordPress VIP makes it easy to pull down data from your production environment to your staging or local development environment for testing.
