Automate Your Configuration: The Joys of WP-CFM

Throughout our workflows, no matter our hosting provider, we often have to reconfigure items such as General Settings or Active Plugins – and even items such as our Autoptimize settings, or FacetWP facets – per environment.

Fear not! That is where WP-CFM comes in. It allows you to push your configuration from your local development, include it in your version control, and pull it into your higher environments. You can even take it one step further, and include some post-deploy hooks in your CircleCI, or via Pantheon Quicksilver.

We’ll touch on what WP-CFM is, why it’s awesome, and showcase some examples of how it will save you time, and sanity.
