Create the Plugin

We'll use the code generation utility wpmvc to create the initial code of the plugin. You'll need to have access to the command line to do the following.

Go into the WP MVC directory and make sure that wpmvc is executable.

cd path/to/plugins/wp-mvc

chmod +x wpmvc

Generate the plugin's initial code.

./wpmvc generate plugin VenueListing

This will generate files in path/to/plugins/venue-listing/ that create a WP MVC-based plugin. The plugin can now be activated in WordPress, but before activating it, we'll want to add code for creating a database table during its activation.
