I need to implement in a wordpress instance a feature that allows me to search for the most recent file with extension .xlsx in the wp-content/upload directory, once the file has been identified, it should be interpreted and finally insert the excel data in the wp_posts and wp_postmeta tables Following a certain logic.

The packages of interest are

  • symfony/finder
  • phpoffice/phpspreadsheet

What is the correct way to integrate and use packages within wordpress?

I am new to worpress and I do not know how in the structure and philosophy of wordpress to do this. Thanks for the time.

  • You would just need to include your dependencies in your theme/plugin. WordPress itself doesn't have its own way of managing dependencies/composer packages. – Jacob Peattie Dec 7 '18 at 4:04
  • thanks for answering. should I then reference the packages in the vendor directory from the functions.php file of the theme, for example, or from a plugin? – user615274 Dec 7 '18 at 4:16
  • Yeah, you would just include the composer autoload.php file from the vendor directory in your functions.php or main plugin file. – Jacob Peattie Dec 7 '18 at 4:24
