Integrate Apps

InstaWP allows you to create fresh WordPress instances directly from its platform. You can use the InstaWP Chrome launcher to launch one with pre-loaded plugins and themes, your Slack workspace, the InstaWP Connect companion plugin, or create a new pull request (PR) from your GitHub repository. These methods provide flexibility and efficiency for managing WordPress development environments.

In this documentation, we will explore the steps to create a new WordPress staging site via:

Chrome Launcher
Slack Workspace
InstaWP Connect Plugin
GitHub Repository

Let’s get started 🚀

Access Apps Option

Go to the Team profile on the Top-right corner and select Apps from the dropdown menu.

Chrome Launcher

With this, you can launch WordPress instances from the plugins and themes page in under 30 seconds, adding them directly to your InstaWP dashboard.

Using the demonstration below, let’s try to:

Add the InstaWP Chrome extension.

Install a plugin/theme from the WordPress Plugins Directory & Theme Directory, with a new site created directly to your InstaWP dashboard.

Note: The user can download the plugin or theme first, but then upload it manually to the staging site from the InstaWP dashboard.

Slack Workspace

You can view content and information, including email addresses of members, and perform actions like adding shortcuts or slash commands for creating new WP instances. This integration enhances collaboration and workflow efficiency within your team.

Let’s try to add Slack workspace to your InstaWP account.

InstaWP Connect Plugin

Using this companion plugin, you can create 1-click staging websites from within the WP admin panel or push changes from staging to production and production to staging.
It is a well-known tool for testing plugins and themes, creating product demos, delivering client projects, and improving WordPress operations. For more information, refer to this document.

GitHub Repository

You can auto-create new instances using the GitHub Repository when creating a new Pull Request (PR) on your GitHub repository to your InstaWP dashboard.

Using the demonstration below, let’s try to create a fork (copy) of the given sample GitHub repository.

Then, you can configure and perform GitHub actions to automate your WordPress workflow. For more information, refer to the GitHub Actions document.
