I may be a devout rubyist, but I still have a soft spot for WordPress -- and maybe even a little for PHP too. One of the things I think is lacking is a good way to manage WordPress updates since, as we all know, WordPress updates constantly. I wrote this quick thor script to help me update to the latest version from the command line so I can do quick version testing. As an added bonus, there is also an export task as well which will simulate doing a wordpress XML export from the dashboard.
So, for all you WordPress guys out there who hate doing manual updates, check this out. It may make life a little bit easier.
