Does Pagely Offer Any Command-Line Tools?

Yes, we have an array of command-line tools designed to help make you more productive.

With SSH available by default to all Pagely accounts, you have access to:

  • the WP-CLI command-line tool
  • the command-line version of our Atomic Control Panel, atomic-client
  • log analysis tools like pagely-bucket
  • specialized tools like pagely-redis
  • all of the standard tools you would expect to find and use in a command-line environment, like git, BASH shell commands, and any other tools/languages you care to install. 

Two signature Pagely command-line utilities are Pagely Sync & Pagely Clone Tool — these can be used to do one-time sync operations, or set up repeatable sync operation.

See technical documentation on using both to copy files to a staging environment:

Pagely Sync is a more simplistic approach for creating one time copies of a single application. Pagely Clone is essentially a wrapper around our syncing tool with advanced configuration options for a more repetitive cloning processes. Pagely Clone best accommodates a Multisite network if you are hosting one with us.

Note: Both essentially act as testing tools, and are not designed as deployment solutions for pushing changes. For that purpose, we encourage setting up a git-based workflow.

Ultimately, we support most everything that can talk to your server via SSH. If you need to install custom libraries on your VPS we can do that on your behalf, just open a support ticket to connect with our WordPress engineering experts.
