If you’re developing with WordPress and not using a framework such as Genesis, you probably have some sort of code collection that you refer to when building new sites.
We’ve mentioned the Underscores theme in the past few days, which is excellent when it comes to starting off with a base theme, and today we will look at another common feature in WordPress websites: widgets.
I’ve come across quite a number of excellent widget boilerplates that you can reuse for your own purposes, and am sharing the best of them here today:
Tom McFarlin’s WordPress Widget Boilerplate
Tom McFarlin is one of those developers whom you’d better be following if you want to become a top developer yourself. He’s been churning out article after article chock full of great tips for standards-compliant WordPress development techniques.
Here’s an excellent tutorial he wrote explaining how he builds his widgets, excellent stuff. The result of course is his Widget Boilerplate, which is handily available on Github.
