If you use brew as package manager on macOS, it is interesting to autoupdate the software installed with this tool.
In this post, I collect some interesting resources to translate and localize software.
When you are creating new tests with PHPUnit, if you execute all tests, it can take some time to execute. To execute them faster, you can filter the tests you want to execute.
As Galician GTE, I translate a lot of strings from English to Galician: WordPress core, WordPress.org infrastructure, plugins, themes, … As a bilingual speaker (Galician and Spanish languages), I realized I can translate faster if I use the Spanish translations as starting point, so I develop a CLI tool to translate all WordPress stuff from Spanish to Galician, using the open-source translations created by the Spanish community (thank you, folks). A few months later, I converted this CLI tool in a website, so you can use it without any installation. And, of course, I have released it as open source (AGPL).
PHPCS and PHPCBF are two well-know PHP scripts used in the PHP development to (PHPCS) detect violations of a defined coding standard, and (PHPCBF) to automatically correct coding standard violations.
I usually use both with composer in my WordPress projects, adding them as dependency in the composer.json file.
But sometimes I need to check some individual PHP file without adding PHPCS and PHPCBF as dependency. In this post, I am going to explain how I do this.
Sometimes, it is useful to use the WordPress nightly version on your local environment, to avoid problems with your code in the near future.
GlotPress has some PHPUnit tests. In this post, I will go to explain how to run it in your local machine.
