Developer Preview

Currently, VersionPress is a Developer Preview and should not be used in production. We really mean it: any bugs or plugin incompatibilities might mess up your database.

If you're eager to start using better WordPress workflows today, you can check out VersionPress.com: a simplified take on database merging by the same team, with different set of trade-offs (not directly built on Git, not as powerful but much more compatible with real-world sites). Note that VersionPress.com is a hosted service, not a plugin.

Ok, there are people that use VersionPress in production or to power their workflows. However, make sure you understand a couple of key points:

  • For actions that perform database merging (pull, undo, ...), all plugins on your site must be compatible with VersionPress, otherwise the site integrity cannot be guaranteed. At this point, you will need to ensure this yourself and possibly write plugin definitions.
  • You'll probably need to be a developer yourself, with good knowledge of Git, WordPress and debugging in general.
  • Keep backup at all times!

Good luck and welcome to the dark side.


Note on 'Early Access' and 'EAP'

Between January 2015 and March 2016, VersionPress used to be available through an Early Access Program (EAP). It was discontinued when VersionPress moved to an open-source model in April 2016.

Between April 2016 and May 2017, the term Early Access was used, eventually replaced by the current one.
