wp shell - Interactive PHP console.

Quick links: Github issues

wp shell allows you to evaluate PHP statements and expressions interactively, from within a WordPress environment. Type a bit of code, hit enter, and see the code execute right before you. Because WordPress is loaded, you have access to all the functions, classes and globals that you can use within a WordPress plugin, for example.


Start in fail-safe mode, even if Boris is available.


# Call get_bloginfo() to get the name of the site.
$ wp shell
wp> get_bloginfo( 'name' );
