What’s New in Local 9.0.0


  • The ability to create new sites on WP Engine without having to leave the Local app is here! Previously, this workflow required users to leave the app, enter the WP Engine portal in their browser, create a site, wait for it to finish building, and only then return to the Local app to begin the push. Now, Local automates these steps for you!
  • While connected to WP Engine, users who push their site will see a new “Push to a new site” option. Simply choose the account you wish to have the site created on, name it, choose your environment type and name and Local will create the site on your behalf. Local will automatically begin the push once notified that the newly created site is ready on WP Engine.
    • Note: This is currently only available for WP Engine users.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixes a regression introduced in Local v8.3.2 that prevented the WP Engine push/pull ignore files (.wpe-push-ignore and .wpe-pull-ignore) from properly being excluded in Local Connect.

Third Party Dependencies

  • Upgraded Electron to v28.2 to include the latest security and performance improvements.
