The ImpEx plugin provides a modern way to import and export data from WordPress.

It provides

  • a WordPress REST API extension for importing and exporting data

  • a WordPress admin page for interacting with the ImpEx WordPress REST API.

  • a CLI for importing and exporting WordPress data from the command-line. You can use the CLI to interact with a remote WordPress installation.

  • an easy way to extend the import/export capabilities by third-party plugins based on WordPress actions and filters
