First of all hats off for a great project. I have been using EE myself but I have decided to switch to webinoly because their next version seem a little bit too Enterprise like for my simple project. One thing I noticed is that there it seems like wp cli is not install by default it would be good to have the option/flag to have it installed instead of having to install it manually (trivial process to install it but still would be nice).

Also when one enters invalid parameters/command syntax it would also be great to have a usage error message instead of the "Please enter a valid option!" message. A -h and -help command would also be helpful to new users by showing a summarised version of the command usage

Hi revibe,

  • WP-Cli is been considered and maybe could be included next year. To be honest, I'm still not sure about it.
  • Can you elaborate a lit bit more about the syntax error message. What exactly are you suggesting? Can you give an example?
  • And yes, totally agree, the -help command could be usefull as a quick reference.
Thanks for your comments and suggestions.

Consider what happens when the ee command is run with the -h flag

ee -h

usage: ee (sub-commands ...) [options ...] {arguments ...}

EasyEngine is the commandline tool to manage your websites based on WordPress and Nginx with easy to use commands



    Clean NGINX FastCGI cache, Opcacache, Memcache, Pagespeed Cache, Redis Cache


    Used for server level debugging


    update EasyEngine to latest version


    Import MySQL slow log to Anemometer database


    Display configuration information related to Nginx, PHP and MySQL


    Perform operations on Nginx, PHP, MySQL log file


    Secure command secure auth, ip and port


    Performs website specific operations


    Stack command manages stack operations


    synchronize EasyEngine database

optional arguments:

  -h, --help     show this help message and exit

  --debug        toggle debug output

  --quiet        suppress all output

  -v, --version  show program's version number and exit

Now compare with the output obtained when one runs the webinoly command with the -h flag

 webinoly -h

Please enter a valid option!

I think webinoly should take the same approach and add the -h flag. Not only that but this message should be displayed when webinoly --invalid-command is run where invalid-command is an invalid command. Maybe later command specific flags could also be added for example: webinoly site -help could maybe show a help message related to the site command.

Ok, I understand. This is not critical, maybe in the future.

I don't really see any benefit other than be a "quick reference".

I am a supporter of taking advantage of wp-cli, but not because I would like it preinstalled. Installing it is easy and I don't care at all if I do a few extra clicks to install it on a new server.

What I believe is that Webinoly could benefit from using WP-CLI by simply supporting the parameters of certain commands. A few examples that come to mind:

  1. You could incorporate all the parameters of "wp site create" on Webinoly's "site -wp" .
  2. Users could install sites with certain plugins preinstalled or even with demo content
  3. You could have an option to run a wp-cli command on more than one site at a time (e.g. perform batch updates of WordPress and Plugins on all the sites of the server).
  4. Batch perform verify-checksums  to ensure the health of the WordPress installations of the server.
  5. Use it for batch database backups or for batch database optimization.

I agree of not pre-installing it but rather adding an additional parameter for it to install like ex.

site create domain.com -wp -cli

and auto completion will be added :)
