I often am working on a variety of WordPress, BuddyPress, and BBPress projects and enjoy working from a lot of not internet connected locations such as trains, buses, parks and the occasional rooftop. As such it’s very handy for me to a local version of PHPXref documents for the current trunk of these products. I’ve written a handy bash script to handle this for me.
#!/bin/bash # define locations PHPXREFLOCATION='/full/path/to/phpxref/folder/with/no/trailing/slash' # check our internet connection wget -q --tries=10 --timeout=5 http://core.svn.wordpress.org/trunk/ -O /tmp/wordpress.svn &> /dev/null if [ ! -s /tmp/wordpress.svn ];then # Remove old version rm -r $PHPXREFLOCATION/output/* # SVN up each piece cd $PHPXREFLOCATION/source/thematic svn up cd $PHPXREFLOCATION/source/wordpress svn up cd $PHPXREFLOCATION/source/bbpress svn up cd $PHPXREFLOCATION/source/buddypress svn up cd $PHPXREFLOCATION/ # Build our new phpxref perl phpxref.pl #remove the tmp file so it's not there for next time rm /tmp/wordpress.svn fi
I have a cron set up to run this at a few intervals that are least likely to bother me (currently 5am and 4pm). I hope this script helps you out. If you have a similar or better one, please let me know.
