EasyEngine v4 Beta-2 Release

We have just released EasyEngine v4 Beta-2. We have handled a few issues and also added some new features in this release. Feel free to test out this beta release and report any issues on our GitHub repo.

You can get started on our currently supported OSs (Ubuntu 14.04, 16.04, 18.04 and Debian 8) using –

wget -qO ee rt.cx/ee4beta && sudo bash ee

We repeat, v4 is not ready for production. For instruction on how to install on currently unsupported distributions, please see installation instructions.

The New Additions

  • Added Behat functional tests for site command – We’ve started adding Behat test cases and will keep updating it. This is somewhere where you can get started with the EasyEngine project. You can always come up on Slack if you want help getting started with development or with these tests.
  • Added shell command – The shell command will put you in a new shell environment to interact with your site and currently has mysql client, wp-cli and composer. In future, it might have tools like npm, pip, etc. You should definitely test this out. Either run ee shell example.com or just run ee shell from the site root ~/ee-sites/example.com
  • Added admin tools – We added some admin tools like phpMyAdmin, Anemometer, phpRedisAdmin, Adminer, MailHog.
  • Add compatibilty to wp-cli flags – This PR adds the feature requested in EasyEngine/easyengine#116 and discussed here EasyEngine/easyengine#1029.
  • Add labels to containers created by EasyEngine – This PR makes sure we can track all containers created by EasyEngine and don’t accidentally remove the containers created by you.

    • We’re working on it and you should see something before the stable release. Keep an eye out for the other beta releases.
