Introducing WordPress Plugin Template

November 19th, 2014

For those who write plugins, I have create free template/scaffolding code I call WordPress Plugin TemplateĀ for writing plugins. It is aimed at helping making lots of commonly done code easier and quicker, and generally bootstrapping the process of getting a plugin written.

WordPress Plugin Template generates scaffold/template code to create a sophisticated WordPress plugin. The template code provide convenience hooks and functions to save you from re-inventing the wheel and to follow best practices.

The template code includes:

  • plugin life cycle management
  • hooks for install, upgrade and uninstall actions
  • fuller options management
  • easy administration page creation
  • easier short code creation
  • easier way to create Ajax handlers
  • easier way to enforce security
  • more!
