|Detail Plugin Description||
This is a plugin for WordPress plugin developers. If you don't understand what
The WordPress Plugin Boilerplate is a fantastic tool for standardising WordPress plugins, and encouraging developers to use best practices. But manual editing of every file to enter the name of the plugin, the author name and all the other metadata is a bit of a chore. This plugin automates that process, giving you a simple form to enter your metadata, then when you hit the 'Build' button your new plugin is created with all the correct metadata.
But there's more. You can also define Custom Post Types and even other custom classes which will have .php files created automatically, and all the relevant code to include those files in your plugin. Once your plugin is built you can, of course, edit the files in any way you want to add extra methods.
Plugin Builder will even create a manager class for your Custom Post Types if you want, as a place to store methods related to your CPTs - such as a get_all() method, for example.
And that's not all. Some developers like to include extra items in their plugins, like utility classes or frameworks such as the WordPress Settings Framework. Plugin Builder automates that process, too, by downloading and including the files you choose in your new plugin.
Plugin Builder comes with a range of these additional includes you can choose from, but if there are other items you want to include you can make those part of the build process really easily (by extending a simple interface and using a filter).
So, let's look at the traditional way of using the WordPress Plugin Boilerplate to create a new plugin:
Or, using Plugin Builder:
My guess is Plugin Builder will save you 2-4 hours work, and make your plugins much more standard in their architecture.
When your plugin is built the settings for it will be saved so you can rebuild your plugin at any time (this will overwrite any changes you've made manually) or make a few changes and create a new plugin.
