wp dist-archive

Create a distribution archive based on a project's .distignore file.

For a plugin in a directory ‘wp-content/plugins/hello-world’, this command creates a distribution archive ‘wp-content/plugins/hello-world.zip’.

You can specify files or directories you’d like to exclude from the archive with a .distignore file in your project repository:

.distignore
.editorconfig
.git
.gitignore
.travis.yml
circle.yml

Use one distibution archive command for many projects, instead of a bash script in each project.

INSTALLING INSTALLING

Use the wp dist-archive command by installing the command's package:

wp package install wp-cli/dist-archive-command

Once the package is successfully installed, the wp dist-archive command will appear in the list of available commands.
