[Resolved] [Plugin: Jetpack by WordPress.com] Local testing version

  • Is there a way to activate the JetPack plugin on my locally running copy of WordPress on my MacBook? I saw a message that said “site_inaccessible”. Error Details: The Jetpack server was unable to communicate with your site [IXR -32300: transport error: http_request_failed Couldn’t resolve host ‘wptest’]

    Is there a way to make this work in my local development environment? The web site that I run is only locally accessible on my Mac.

    Currently, no, it is not possible. We are considering ways to make this available so folks can test Jetpack with development sites, but I don’t have an ETA on if or when it will be possible.

    I can understand that jetpack needs wp.com for the comments and stats, but there is no reason that the widgets and the gallery isn’t accessible locally

    I have two modules activated that jetpack can replace but I have no way to test this. It’s not an option to do this on a busy site so offline testing is mandatory. Now I can only use it for the stats.

    +1 for local development capability.

    +1 as well. This is a pretty major hindrance to the development cycle.

    +1 yep, what they said…
    I think developers would be more than OK to accept that some features or obviously not available when the website is not public. Needing to dev on a live server is really time consuming…
    Thanks!

    +2 from me. Jetpack consolidates quite a bit of useful functionality in one up-datable place. Ideal for my clients. Offline testing is a must.

    +1 from me. I really need to be able to get everything going on a development server before moving into production.

    +1, indeed. Considering making the switch and this is the only thing holding me up.

    So this has been resolved?

    +1 here too: it’s essential to be able to test out features and configurations before releasing in to the wild…

    I vote for this option too

    adding my name to the list – this is essential for me when developing client sites.

    (i’m not sure why this thread is marked as resolved, it’s certainly still an issue as of version 2.0.2)

    For now, you can trick jetpack into thinking it is connected by modifying plugins/jetpack/jetpack.php (version 2.0.2 on wp 3.4)

    Edit is_active() around line 274:

    function is_active() {
    	return true;
    	//return (bool) Jetpack_Data::get_access_token( JETPACK_MASTER_USER );
    }

    Edit $is_connected and $is_user_connected in admin_page() around line 2213:
    $is_connected = true; //Jetpack::is_active()
    $is_user_connected = true; //$user_token && !is_wp_error($user_token)

    source

    I also don’t understand why this is marked resolved. edwinvanolst’s hack notwithstanding, there is still no proper way to test jetpack prior to putting it into production.

    I started another thread about the same issue with a little twist here.
