XPSK – WordPress Plugin Starter Kit (WordPress)

By Acty, October 2, 2013

To all fellow WordPress Plugin devs of the world.

Finaly there is a tool to make life a little less complicated.

Are you tired of:

  • Repetive coding
  • Searching through old code to get new work out
  • Code restructuring
  • Code cleanup
  • Long hours

After 13 years of development most of the above drove me crazy and I decided to create something that basically almost creates, or does my work for me.

XPSK is what I came up with and to this day its litterly saving me months of time and frustration.

All you have to do is set your perameters needed by your end plugin and simply press create.

A plugin with the following is created instantly in your WP plugin directory and has the following ready to go on activation:

  • Admin menu and optional submenu items
  • Admin page with a logo
  • Database setup and entry form
  • WP styled view of the database
  • Ajax inserts, deletions, editing, sorting and pagination
  • Sidebar widget
  • Dashboard widget
  • TinyMCE button with shorcode
  • TinyMCE Popup window
  • Ready function for user interface output
  • Ready function for shortcode processing
  • All JS needs is localized withing the plugin preventing interferance where not needed.

V1.0 is just the tip of the iceberg, first we’ll test the water and then open the floud gates with more building blocks like: panels, drag and drop UI output, plugin modules and many more.

Remmember, this gives you a solid base to work from and all your creativity will still be added to this framework for an awsome end product.
