Over the last few months, the WordPress Widget Boilerplate has received a number of pull requests, merges, and improvements.

Specifically, the following changes have been made:

  • Localization improvements
  • Introduced a .gitignore file to exclude files from the repository
  • Improvements to the JavaScript files for better jQuery management
  • Plugin directory path improvements
  • Code refactoring to comply with WordPress coding conventions
  • Load file helper function improvements
  • Added activation and deactivation hooks
The ultimate goal of the boilerplate is to be the¬†foundation on which other developers build their WordsPress widgets, so if you notice anything missing or detect any bugs, create a pull request and I’ll be sure to merge it!
