As I start to get more familiar with Kirby I find myself wondering, what are your go-to kirby add-ons? I use the term “add-ons” so as not to limit it to plugins. I know there are a bunch of gems out there. Perhaps it’s a kirbytext extension or a panel field or a custom plugin you copy from project to project?
As I’m starting a new project I found myself using the following so far:
Here are a number I want to try out soon (in no particular order) when I get some time to see how they improve my development workflow:
What are the add-ons you’ve found indispensable?
I almost only use my own plugins, but I also have some favourites that are not my own.
Want to try OR try more:
My “Kirby boilerplate” nowadays includes the following :
- An enhanced
.htaccess (mostly character encoding, compression and caching settings taken from h5bp’s recs)
gulpfile.js that deals with all the uglification / minification of the assets.
- The Cachebuster plugin that greatly replaces gulp-rev
image.replace big hook combining Image Shrink+ TinyPNG + Dominant color + Some custom infos I get from images.
panel.page.create hook that populates a hidden ‘uniqueid’ field so that I can easily target a specific page later.
Snippetfield I find myself using quite regularly.
Selector I use every time image selection is on the table.
The tabs field to keep everything in order.
Static Translations and Translations in case of multilanguage.
Thanks for sharing these guys! There are quite a few listed I wasn’t even aware of. I’m going to have some fun checking these out.
If anyone else cares to share, please do!
Plugins I use on pretty much every site, in no particular order:
Also used: Colorlist, Comments, oEmbed
Want to try: Auto Git, Cachebuster, Modules or Builder (I believe both can be useful for different use cases), Image Shrink, Static Translations and Translations for a site I’ll have to switch to multilanguage later this year.
I try to not use to many plugin:
