• Anything else in your development toolkit?

    Anything else in your development toolkit?

    The last question in What is in your development environment? was “Anything else in your development toolkit?”

    Here are my soft answers:

    • All the reference material on WordPress.org and the multitude of WordPress related sites that live and breathe WordPress.
    • wp-a2z.org and its sub domains for Blocks and FSE themes, WooCommerce and Jetpack.
    • Books: Having attempted to learn React JS, and having struggled with the development of blocks for Gutenberg, my latest purchase was “Mastering React Test-Driven Development”; I wanted to be able to unit test my JavaScript. It’s taken me a long time to not actually get very far.
    • I’ve thrown away all my Drupal books, and don’t having many WordPress ones left either.
    • Seagate Disk Wizard – for taking those Oh so important backups.
    • A TODO list – I used to have it implemented as a custom post type. Originally it wasn’t intended to be a WORN implementation ( Write Once Read Never ), more a round tuit.
    • Nowadays I use GitHub issues. Every now and then I try to prioritise the issues. At least I’ve closed more than I’ve raised.
    • Problem Solving – Top 10 questions to ask when something doesn’t work
    • Multiple development environments and a dashboard showing me which versions of plugins I have installed in each, plus a whole lot more.
    • My home grown WordPress batch facility: oik-batch
    • Command Prompts – the DOS box
    • Finally, Garmin S40 Golf GPS… It doesn’t help with WordPress but you need to have some time away from the keyboard 🙂
