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 distribution archive command for many projects, instead of a bash script in each project.
