How to Localize WordPress with WP-CLI
31. January 2017 Note
If you want to localize WordPress with WP-CLI, you can do like following.
At first, install the language file with the following command.
$ wp core language install ja --activate
ja means Japanese, so please change it to your own language.
If you want to change the timezone, please run following command.
$ timezone=$(wp eval "echo _x( '0', 'default GMT offset or timezone string' );") $ wp option update timezone_string $timezone
The default timezone of your language is saved in the
.mo, so you can get it with
wp eval command.
Then if you update
timezone_string option, timezone will be updated.
Change Date Format
Finally, change the date format with the following command.
$ date_format=$(wp eval "echo __( 'M jS Y' );") $ wp option update date_format $date_format
