We are thrilled to announce our new premium services. We’ve been working on this for quite some time, we feel ecstatic to finally reveal and put it out there for you, to try it out. Introducing GenerateWP Premium!
You all know GenerateWP as a resource site providing tools for WordPress developers. Allowing you to enhance your workflow, create high quality code in less time. You must be asking yourself what are those premium services we are talking about? and are we going to close our tools for premium users only?
For starter, everybody can use our generators free of charge – that’s not going to change. We are not planning to close our generators, on the contrary, the generators will stay open and we have plans to release many more free generators. Registered users can also save code snippets and manage them in their personal dashboards – It’s not going to change either.
What Premium Services?
Last week we had a silent launch for our premium services to test things out on a larger scale. The response was AMAZING and we are overwhelmed great feedback (so thank you very much for that).
We’ve got a bunch of great features to start with. Premium account users will be able to save public and private snippets and gain access to Premium Generators.
In the near future, premium users will get access to our GWP cloud API, allowing you to use your code snippets in external sources and dynamically (think of sublime plugin to pull snippets you generated here). And to complete the API package we will be releasing GenerateWP Turnkey plugin to our premium account users with will allow you to pull snippets to your WordPress site and run the code over their – no more copy pasting!
New Premium Generators
We’ve created a handful of cool new generators, some of which have been long awaited. (This is where we say thank you to all of you who sent their feedback and feature requests.)
Meta Box Generator – Finally. It’s here. You guys have been waiting for this for quite some time, and we’re excited to have this generator included in GenerateWP Premium. With the Meta Box generator, you should be able to easily create meta boxes with custom fields. Even though this is something you can currently do with various plugins out there and external libraries, our solution is the lightest and by far the most readable. That’s because, the code we supply is extremely customized for your needs and does not include any “fluff” code that may stall your site’s performance.
Widget Generator – By the same token, we have done the same but for widgets. You can now create sidebar widgets that have setting fields built into them. So literally, in a matter of minutes, you can have a new widget up and running. How awesome is that? All you really have to do is write some code for the front-end part of the widget, and off you go.
Dashboard Widget Generator – If you’re looking to create some widgets for WordPress dashboard, creating one is going to be just as easy as with any of our other generators, that is a promise.
Upcoming Premium Generators
We have more useful generators under development:
Admin Settings Screen Generator – Are you looking to create a settings page for your theme/plugin? This generator is going to be extra useful for you, as it’s going to save you a lot of time and frustration (anyone who created a settings page using the settings API knows what we mean). Just like all our generators, all you need to do is to fill in the form and select which fields you want to display – we will do the rest!
Customizer Generator – With the latest changes in theme development standards, this tool is going to save you lots of time. Need to create new components for the customizer? Using this generator you will be able to do it faster and easier!
Hide your code snippets
The fun part in open source project is the code collaboration. But, in reality, many of our users are developing projects for large scale organisation that require intellectual property compliance.
Did we mention that with the new premium account you can save your snippets as private so no one out there will stumbles into it.
Large agencies that use our tools in their project told us that they can’t save public snippets for later use due to legal obligation. With private snippets you keep your snippets for your own eyes only!
Our goal with GenerateWP is to have a cloud platform for WordPress developers where they can create, edit, organize and share code. We want our users to be able to do all that and a lot more, while having to deal with as little code as possible. Moreover, we want to provide the ability to create the code once, save it to the cloud, and use it in several sites without recreating the code again to each project, without even copy pasting it to each site.
With our current platform, each user can save his snippets in his own private dashboard. Our plan is to give you access to all your code, that managed and storred in our servers, using our new Cloud API. Premium users will get API access to their snippets. This way you can select any public snippet (or your private snippets) from our servers and run it in your site(s).
Our GenerateWP Turnkey WordPress Plugin (which will be released soon), will allow you to select different snippets from your account and run them in your site.
Think about it, you don’t need go through the process of uploading a plugin or add snippets of code to your theme. Just Install the plugin and using your API token, run the code in your sites or your clients site.
For example, you can create a FAQ post type with a shortcode that show all the items using WP_Query. Then just pull the snippets in your site using the turnkey plugin. Now, you can add that FAQ functionality to all of your sites or clients sites without repeating your self. No more code copy pasting to each site. It’s like your own private plugin repository! How cool is that!
