Preview WordPress Core Pull Requests using Playground.

Before submitting requests in Playground, it is important to properly preview WordPress Core Pull Requests to ensure they meet all necessary criteria. This can help prevent any potential errors or issues from occurring during the review process.

The WordPress Core PR previewer is now available, as announced by WordPress Playground inventor Adam Zieliski today. Playground is an experimental project that runs WordPress in the browser using WebAssembly (WASM). It can almost instantly launch a test site because it instantaneously launches a WordPress instance with admin access without requiring the installation of PHP, MySQL, or Apache.

One of the most interesting use cases for the Playground project is testing pull requests. is the URL for the recently released WordPress Core PR previewer. The URL or PR number can be entered by users.

Goaliski pointed up a few known problems with this initial version that developers using the previewer should be mindful of: New PRs function perfectly, however existing PRs require a rebase to function. Furthermore, as the package is about 45MB large, you could discover that downloading WordPress takes a while if you give it a try. Contributors are trying to figure out how to make this faster and more effective for previewing PRs. You can report any bugs or issues to the issues page of the Playground repositories.

Recently, WordPress meta contributors added a Live Preview button to the official plugin directory. However, they had to reverse this feature because it was causing numerous plugins to malfunction because the Playground environment was not providing enough support. In addition to continuing to improve the live preview experience for plugins hosted on, Zieliski and collaborators are developing a Blueprints API that will make it simple for developers to personalize their Playground instances.
