I just deprecated 15+ of my plugins


#1

The reasons that I deprecated 15+ of my plugins are:

  • It makes no sense in Kirby 3 that may come out this year.
  • It will be integrated in Kirby 3.
  • The plugin is not that good.

I guess some of you still use these plugins, so I just moved them here:

Most of the plugins has a MIT license so feel free to build something own with them.

The reasons behind the plugins I don’t deprecate are:

  • They are easy to port to Kirby 3.
  • They may get a major rewrite for Kirby 3.

In conclusion: Plugins that only make sense for Kirby 2 is now deprecated.


#2

I always feel that it’s an unfortunate situation when something useful gets deprecated. I’m sure a lot of people won’t be making the switch to Kirby 3 right away, but I understand where your decision is coming from.


#3

I understand your point of view as well.

  • The plugins are not gone, just move to another repository. It makes it clear for me and others which plugins may be updated and which will not.
  • The plugins will probably continue to work for Kirby 2 a very long time, because I guess there will be no breaking changes to Kirby 2.

#4

From my perspective, at the current state, it doesn’t make sense to deprecate these plugins, because they are not deprecated for Kirby 2 but will only have this status for K3.


#5

I will not maintain these plugins. So they will be kind of dead. But instead of deleting them, I moved them to the “Ghost repository”.
