For sites concerned with high traffic, speed for logged-in users, or dynamic pageloads, a high-speed and persistent object cache is a must. You also need something that can scale across multiple instances of your application, so using local file caches or APC are out.

Redis is a great answer, and one we bundle on the Pantheon platform. This is our plugin for integrating with the cache, but you can use it on any self-hosted WordPress site if you have Redis. Install from WordPress.org or Github.

It’s important to note that a persistent object cache isn’t a panacea – a page load with 2,000 Redis calls can be 2 full seconds of object cache transactions. Make sure you use the object cache wisely: keep to a sensible number of keys, don’t store a huge amount of data on each key, and avoid stampeding frontend writes and deletes.

Go forth and make awesome! And, once you’ve built something great, send us feature requests (or bug reports). Take a look at the wiki for useful code snippets and other tips.

You may notice there are two sets of tests running, on two different services:

  • Travis CI runs the PHPUnit test suite in a variety of environment configurations (e.g. Redis enabled vs. Redis disabled).
  • Circle CI runs the Behat test suite against a Pantheon site, to ensure the plugin’s compatibility with the Pantheon platform.

Both of these test suites can be run locally, with a varying amount of setup.

PHPUnit requires the WordPress PHPUnit test suite, and access to a database with name wordpress_test. If you haven’t already configured the test suite locally, you can run bash bin/install-wp-tests.sh wordpress_test root '' localhost. You’ll also need to enable Redis and the PHPRedis extension in order to run the test suite against Redis.

Behat requires a Pantheon site with Redis enabled. Once you’ve created the site, you’ll need install Terminus, and set the TERMINUS_TOKEN, TERMINUS_SITE, and TERMINUS_ENV environment variables. Then, you can run ./bin/behat-prepare.sh to prepare the site for the test suite.
