WebLog Tools Collection

  • I am taking my leave of Weblog Tools Collection, and thanks for everything! March 31, 2013 1:41 pm
    Not many of the present readers might know me very well, and that in part, is the reason that I have made the decision to transfer WLTC to more willing and presently capable hands. I am a stranger on my blog and the time has come for me to make sure that this blog, its contents and its knowledge are archived and preserved and maybe rejuvenated at a later time. I delved into blogging tools back in 2004 when I started my Masters degree in CS. I wanted some code to mess around with in my free time and everyone was talking about blogging. I looked into a variety of tools, built a small Linux server for myself at home, and installed a few of the tools that were freely available at that time. I had a heck of a time getting a hold of MT (Moveable Type, the most well-known name) and […]

  • Where to Find WordPress News March 31, 2013 12:05 am
    The landscape of news has changed so much over the last few years that news about a particular topic or platform is readily available to anyone within an instant. With WordPress, I imagine that could be one of the perks of powering over 16% of the web, but it’s true that news is becoming incredibly accessible. In short, news is everywhere. Speaking of WordPress in general, you can of course acquire official direct news from WordPress News, but you can also take a peak behind the curtain and follow news in the making at Make Though it’s only specific to the blogging platform, News is also worth watching for WordPress development news, as users often get access to new WordPress features before they’re released, so you’ll be able to try new features rather than just read about them. There’s more news than just direct official news, like I […]

    The impending release of WordPress 3.6 has been pushed back one more week to April 29.

This will allow the team time to focus on finalizing the in-progress new features so that they (and the brave folks who enjoy running beta software) can simply focus on testing and bug fixing rather than polishing up partial features.

  • Do You Work From Home? March 12, 2013 2:00 pm
    There has been a lot of talk lately about working from home and maintaining a distributed workforce. Web-based software, like WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal, are taking over the publishing industry and allow you to work from anywhere with an internet connection. Though, even though they can be managed  from home, working from home and maintaining a distributed workforce is not yet broadly acknowledged in society as a successful and efficient alternative to working in an office. Despite working with software that doesn’t need to be tied to one specific workstation, you could still find yourself tied to a desk in cubicle. I work full-time for Automattic and have the pleasure of both working from home and setting my own hours. After all, I only need a browser, an email client, and IRC client, and Skype to do my job. A desk is nice, but there’s no one saying that said desk has to be […]

  • Toru Miki: WordPressサイト制作におけるデプロイメントを考える 〜Gitとデプロイサービスの活用〜 October 23, 2014 3:26 am
    現在WordPressサイトの構築や更新には、FTPもしくはSFTPソフトを利用したデプロイメントが主流です。 サイト全体の引っ越しであれば、あるいはrsyncやscpといったコマンドを使う場合もあるでしょう。 しかし手動で行う作業や、不慣れなコマンドを使うことにより、ミスしたり、時間が掛かったりしませんか? 一方で、最近は開発にGitを用いたVCを実践している、あるいは検討、勉強しているという方も少しずつ増えてきている反面、実務でわざわざ使う利点をイマイチ見いだせていない…という方もいるはず。 そこでGitとデプロイツール(サービス)を組み合わせたテーマ、プラグイン、サイト全体の、より効率的かつスピーディーなデプロイとその自動化を提案します。 また、WordPressサイトにこのワークフローを導入する際の注意点も考えます。 まだまだ、個人と職場両方の場で模索しながらこのワークフローを試しています。 実績に基づく「これをやっておけばよい」という正解をシェアできるものではありませんが、 同様に模索している方や興味ある方と現在のノウハウをシェアしあい、 インスパイアしあえるきっかけになればと思います。

This presentation explores the philosophical underpinnings of WordPress, ideas like freedom, simplicity, and democracy. It looks at these ideas in their most abstract, tracing how they become concrete in the software and the community. Presentation Slides »
