Use this script to get up and running quickly with a new WordPress website
After developing custom WordPress websites for years, something that I always find myself wanting to optimise/automate is the initial setup process. I find myself always doing the exact same steps to get up and running.
I've created a script which automates the entire process by running one file. Check the repository for the most up to date installation instructions as I continue to update the script and theme.
Here is what the script does:
Downloads the latest version of WordPress
Extracts the official ZIP file to a public folder and removes the ZIP
Installs a barebones theme which contains only the commonly used files. It also includes a number of useful functions that I add to all projects. Most of the theme files are empty, allowing for a quick starting point
