wp find

Find WordPress installs on the filesystem.

Recursively iterates subdirectories of provided <path> to find and report WordPress installs. A WordPress install is a wp-includes directory with a version.php file.

Avoids recursing some known paths (e.g. /node_modules/, hidden sys dirs) to significantly improve performance.

Indicates depth at which the WordPress install was found, and its alias, if it has one.

$ wp find ./
+--------------------------------------+---------------------+-------+--------+
| version_path                         | version             | depth | alias  |
+--------------------------------------+---------------------+-------+--------+
| /Users/wpcli/wp-includes/version.php | 4.8-alpha-39357-src | 2     | @wpcli |
+--------------------------------------+---------------------+-------+--------+
