PoP can finally be installed!

Alright, that took some time in coming, but we can finally announce it: PoP can finally be installed through Composer! Sucess!!!!!

So for first time in its history, PoP can be easily installed, without resorting to hacks: simply execute a script, wait for a few minutes, and voilà. Currently, only the PoP API for WordPress is finished, and in a few months we will unlock further functionality: creating the whole site through PoP, and for other CMSs in addition to WordPress. Yay!

Installation instructions

Via Composer and WP-CLI (both are assumed to be installed globally):

  1. Create the WordPress database and user
  2. Configure WordPress through environment variables:

Copy the code below to an editor, replace all values (such as {YOUR_SITE_DB_NAME}) with your own values, and then either paste it on the terminal to execute, or save it in file “~/.bash_profile” and then execute source ~/.bash_profile.

export DB_NAME={YOUR_SITE_DB_NAME} #eg: database
export DB_USER={YOUR_SITE_DB_USER} #eg: admin
export DB_PASSWORD={YOUR_SITE_DB_PASSWORD} #eg: sADF!kl9diq@#Sjfk
export DB_HOST={YOUR_SITE_DB_HOST} #eg: 127.0.0.1
export SITE_URL_WITHOUT_HTTP={YOUR_SITE_URL_WITHOUT_HTTP} #eg: localhost
export SITE_URL_WITH_HTTP={YOUR_SITE_URL_WITH_HTTP} #eg: http://localhost
export SITE_NAME="{YOUR_SITE_NAME}" #eg: "My awesome website"
export ADMIN_USER={ADMIN_USER} #eg: admin
export ADMIN_PASSWORD={ADMIN_PASSWORD} #eg: JKo$@sfjASD00w
export ADMIN_EMAIL={ADMIN_EMAIL} #eg: pedro@example.com

To set the SALT keys there are two alternatives:

I. Set random values through environment variable SHUFFLE_SALT_KEYS:

export SHUFFLE_SALT_KEYS=true

II. Set the corresponding values directly:

# Obtain random values from https://api.wordpress.org/secret-key/1.1/salt
export AUTH_KEY={YOUR_AUTH_KEY}
export SECURE_AUTH_KEY={YOUR_SECURE_AUTH_KEY}
export LOGGED_IN_KEY={YOUR_LOGGED_IN_KEY}
export NONCE_KEY={YOUR_NONCE_KEY}
export AUTH_SALT={YOUR_AUTH_SALT}
export SECURE_AUTH_SALT={YOUR_SECURE_AUTH_SALT}
export LOGGED_IN_SALT={YOUR_LOGGED_IN_SALT}
export NONCE_SALT={YOUR_NONCE_SALT}
  1. Bootstrap a new project from this repo:
composer create-project leoloso/pop-api-wp
  1. Wait for a few minutes ☕️😁
  2. ✅ The site is installed under:
    • 👉WordPress site: {YOUR_SITE_URL_WITH_HTTP}
    • 👉WordPress admin: {YOUR_SITE_URL_WITH_HTTP}/wp/wp-admin/
    • 👉PoP API: {YOUR_SITE_URL_WITH_HTTP}/posts/?action=api&datastructure=rest (REST for posts)

 

Enjoy!
