Introduction to WP-CLI

Post has attachment

(I'm reposting here since there's a bigger audience -- this was also posted to a smaller WP Community)
I have an ongoing discussion/debate with a client's IT department and I thought I'd bring the discussion here to get more feedback from the WP community. Well over a year ago, they were hacked, more like they had a plugin that had a vulnerability and that resulted in them getting hacked. They fixed the problem, but that also meant they had to tighten security at that time. One of the things they did was to restrict access on their load balancer from accessing wp-admin from outside of their network. Since then I've not only tightened security within the wp-confg file, resetting permissions, restricting how plugins get installed (through version control), adding some sort of version control for the entire site including database, but the biggest thing is that I installed Sucuri's plugin. All that to say, I want to open wp-admin back up so that we don't need to continue to open the VPN or add static IP addresses to the load balancer so that outside people (shipping vendor, guest bloggers, etc.) can access wp-admin. Am I wrong in thinking that everything I've done is good enough to open wp-admin again? What are your thoughts about this?

I've watched this a few times now, and I'm still pretty lost for words. I simply can't bring myself to put my thoughts down into words yet. Watch and I think you'll agree.

I've shared this on Facebook as well. But definitely donated a week's wort of lattes to the cause. Consider re-sharing and donating to help a worthy cause.
I watched this video twice and cried both times.

I'll donate $1 for each public share of this post up to, say, $2,000. Let's bring a little joy into these kids' hearts.

I have a random discussion I'm working through with one of my clients (jobs). They mainly do Python development but have a WP site for their marketing site and blog. They require that PQA is done through their devs and have their own internal standards that they say WP code I develop for them must fit into. Specifically in this case we're talking line length. I've always just left it at around 120, but always try to follow WP coding standards. My question is how many people have their own standards outside of the WP standards that they try to follow? Is there a list of PHP specific standards you try to follow above and beyond WP's?
