I’ve been maintaining a bunch of BASH scripts for working with my WordPress sites. Moving the databases from prod to dev environments, working with the source code repos, etc. So I am migrating all this into a new open source project ‘WordPress Dev Tools’. The language of choice is Python and everything is object-oriented. It’s super simple right now, but I anticipate increasing functionality weekly.
Check it out, contribute, tell your friends.. http://github.com/joet3ch/wordpress-dev-tools
