I had a quick for a plugin but didn't find an exact match, I did find this plugin that I think could be easily adapted to add the same functionality you are seeking: ​ I'm going to close this as wontfix for now as the current functionality works as expected.

  • Ticket #44241 (Increase the interval used by grunt watch to reduce CPU usage) created May 26, 2018 10:15 pm
    grunt watch appears to use around 40% of my CPU when sitting idle. By default, ​grunt-contrib-watch uses a 100ms interval. Several of the groups in our _watch config specify an interval of 2 seconds, but others defer to the default. In my local environment (non-VM), if I add options: { interval: 2000 } to the config, colors, test, and phpunit groups, grunt watch CPU usage stays consistently within 2 to 5% at idle. See ​this related discussion on the grunt-contrib-watch project If I change all configurations to 1 second, grunt watch CPU usage stays at around 9%. I'm attaching a patch that applies only the interval addition to each of the other groups.
  • Ticket #44240 (Avoid running full PHPUnit test suite for every PHP file change) created May 26, 2018 9:58 pm
    In current trunk, when using grunt watch to ensure that changed PHP files are copied from src/ to build/, the full PHPUnit test suite runs for every change. This takes somewhere around 4 minutes (on my local, non-VM config). In #42282, a grunt watch:phpunit was introduced. This makes it possible to run a specific set of tests whenever working with PHP files. To work, this requires specifying a group - grunt watch:phpunit --group=testgroup. That change, [42760], also added a phpunit grouping under the _watch config. At that time, a grunt watch command first fired webpack:dev. The webpack:dev task provided its own watch configuration through Webpack, and the core _watch command never fired. Whether intentional or not, the default PHPUnit suite did not run for every change. With [43309], which refactored the build process for core, the webpack:dev task was changed to build. The _watch task is no longer blocked from running, and the full PHPUnit test suite runs. If I remove the phpunit config from _watch, the current grunt watch takes 1-2 seconds rather than several minutes. I think the idea behind #42282 is still right, but with the requirement that PHP files are copied to build/ before anything on the front end can be previewed, I don't think it should be mandatory. I'd like to see grunt watch not run any PHPUnit tests by default, since PHP files don't historically require a "build" for their changes to be previewed. It would be nice instead to see something like grunt watch --phpunit --group=testgroup for when you do want to run a select number of tests immediately on file change.

  • 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 […]

  • 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.

    Deine Plugin-Funktionalität mit spezifischen Berechtigungen durch die WordPress Capabilities API abzusichern sollte eigentlich ein Best Practice sein, doch die API wird noch immer häufig übersehen. Die Verwendung der Capabilities API erlaubt anderen Entwicklern, dein Plugin haargenau an die spezifischen Bedingungen des jeweiligen Projekts anzupassen, und kann zudem sogar Sicherheitslücken vorbeugen. Dieser Vortrag erklärt die Funktionalität der API und zeigt anhand eines ausführlichen Beispiels, wie man die API in einem Plugin verwendet. Weiterführend wird auch gezeigt, wie man als externer Entwickler ein Drittanbieter-Plugin entsprechend anpassen kann.

Both projects changed a lot recently, so you might learn something new. And now with Tide, this is getting more and more important for plugin and theme authors. Don’t forget to bring a towel!

Mit dem „WP Quiz“ geht das beliebte Format „Ich stell hier die Fragen!“ in die zweite Runde. Das Quiz ist ein gemütliches, unterhaltsames und lehrreiches Format bei dem jeder mit raten kann und sein Wissen rund um WordPress zeigen darf.
  • Andrey Savchenko: WordPress breaks time (and how to fix it) May 6, 2018 8:41 am
    Date/Time component of WordPress core dates back to ancient PHP 4 times. As result work with dates, times, and timezones is full of pitfalls. Trivial actions in admin and code can lead to massive errors in output of time information. Errors that will confuse both people and software. The talk will summarize years of experience with bugs and edge cases in Date/Time component. Point out the most common (and trivial to make!) errors. Provide practical solutions for robust development and output practices.

  • Zeth Odderskov: Time management and time tracking May 6, 2018 8:26 am
    We all have 24 hours in our days, but we spend them very differently. This talk is about the discoveries I came across, tracking every minute of my life since February 2017. I use time tracking across all areas of my life. This presentation will be divided into two sections: ‚The benefits of time tracking at work‘ and ‚The benefits of time tracking in your daily life‘. I find that time tracking has the following effects: increased productivity, improving choosing the right task to work on, feeling in control of your day/life and making an excellent feedback loop for reflection.

  • Raffaella Isidori: From „it’s mine“ to „it’s me“: how the concept of branding has evolved over the last 50.000 years May 6, 2018 8:13 am
    The practice of branding can be traced back to 50.000 years ago. The concept of marketing branding to 4000 BC. And with the (r)evolution brought forth by Internet and Social Media, today „we are all brands“ and as such, we all need to be aware of how a brand is best managed. This talk is a primer on the origin and the evolution of the concept of branding, so to better understand and care for our brand(s), regardless of their being a company, a product or a personal one. The talk will highlight key aspects of quality branding, and serve as a theoretical introduction for the workshop where I will teach the basics for building, tending and grooming a brand.

  • Connecting the dots: WordPress, Código abierto, neutralidad en la red y privacidad May 5, 2018 8:36 pm
    La idea de esta charla es dar contexto, background y mostrar a la audiencia como WordPress y el código abierto está relacionado con la lucha contra algunos de los problemas de falta de libertad en la red más grandes a los que nos enfrentamos desde que internet existe. Somos parte de un colectivo inmenso en el mundo y tenemos en nuestras manos el concienciar a las nuevas generaciones. Connecting the dots… sería una charla para hacer consciencia de que la comunidad de WordPress es mucho más que un grupo de personas aprendiendo a hacer sitios webs. Nuestro software está usado por casi el 30% de internet y tenemos en nuestras manos el cambiarlo para mejor.Presentation Slides »
  • Daniel Pardella: WordPress OnPage Optimierung – technisch & strukturell May 5, 2018 1:18 pm
    In meinem Vortrag möchte ich auf die Schwachstellen der Websites eingehen. Es geht gar nicht primär um SEO Optimierung, sondern viel mehr um eine technische & strukturelle Richtigkeit der Website. Dadurch stellt sich eine automatische eine Verbesserung der Auffindbarkeit dar. Ich hasse stumpfes SEO per Linkkauf oder nicht nachhaltigen Strategien. Im Grunde werde ich aufzeigen was man bei dem Aufbau seiner Inhalte und Webseiten generell beachten sollte. Es geht von richtigem Aufbau der Inhalte, über Vor- Und Nachteile bestimmter Seitenstrukturen bis hin zu Ladezeit und Code Optimierung. Alles relativ kompakt am Beispiel erklärt. Einen ähnlichen Vortrag durfte ich schon beim WP Meetup Leipzig halten. Ich freue mich daher sehr, wenn ich Soltau mit meinem Talk bereichern darf.
