How To Customize WordPress Plugins? (4 Easy Ways To Do)

This is image title
WordPress needs no introduction. It has been in the world for quite a long time. And up till now, it has given a tough fight to leading web development technology. The main reason behind its remarkable success is, it is highly customizable and also SEO-friendly. Other benefits include open-source technology, security, user-friendliness, and the thousands of free plugins it offers.

Talking of WordPress plugins, are a piece of software that enables you to add more features to the website. They are easy to integrate into your website and don’t hamper the performance of the site. WordPress, as a leading technology, has to offer many out-of-the-box plugins.

However, not always the WordPress would be able to meet your all needs. Hence you have to customize the WordPress plugin to provide you the functionality you wished. WordPress Plugins are easy to install and customize. You don’t have to build the solution from scratch and that’s one of the reasons why small and medium-sized businesses love it. It doesn’t need a hefty investment or the hiring of an in-house development team. You can use the core functionality of the plugin and expand it as your like.

In this blog, we would be talking in-depth about plugins and how to customize WordPress plugins to improve the functionality of your web applications.

What Is The Working Of The WordPress Plugins?

Developing your own plugin requires you to have some knowledge of the way they work. It ensures the better functioning of the customized plugins and avoids any mistakes that can hamper the experience on your site.

1. Hooks

Plugins operate primarily using hooks. As a hook attaches you to something, the same way a feature or functionality is hooked to your website. The piece of code interacts with the other components present on the website. There are two types of hooks: a. Action and b. Filter.

A. Action

If you want something to happen at a particular time, you need to use a WordPress “action” hook. With actions, you can add, change and improve the functionality of your plugin. It allows you to attach a new action that can be triggered by your users on the website.

There are several predefined actions available on WordPress, custom WordPress plugin development also allows you to develop your own action. This way you can make your plugin function as your want. It also allows you to set values for which the hook function. The add_ action function will then connect that function to a specific action.

B. Filters

They are the type of hooks that are accepted to a single variable or a series of variables. It sends them back after they have modified it. It allows you to change the content displayed to the user.

You can add the filter on your website with the apply_filter function, then you can define the filter under the function. To add a filter hook on the website, you have to add the $tag (the filter name) and $value (the filtered value or variable), this allows the hook to work. Also, you can add extra function values under $var.

Once you have made your filter, you can execute it with the add_filter function. This will activate your filter and would work when a specific function is triggered. You can also manipulate the variable and return it.

2. Shortcodes

Shortcodes are a good way to create and display the custom functionality of your website to visitors. They are client-side bits of code. They can be placed in the posts and pages like in the menu and widgets, etc.

There are many plugins that use shortcodes. By creating your very own shortcode, you too can customize the WordPress plugin. You can create your own shortcode with the add_shortcode function. The name of the shortcode that you use would be the first variable and the second variable would be the output of it when it is triggered. The output can be – attributes, content, and name.

3. Widgets

Other than the hooks and shortcodes, you can use the widgets to add functionality to the site. WordPress Widgets are a good way to create a widget by extending the WP_Widget class. They render a user-friendly experience, as they have an object-oriented design approach and the functions and values are stored in a single entity.

How To Customize WordPress Plugins?

There are various methods to customize the WordPress plugins. Depending on your need, and the degree of customization you wish to make in the plugin, choose the right option for you. Also, don’t forget to keep in mind that it requires a little bit of technical knowledge too. So find an expert WordPress plugin development company in case you lack the knowledge to do it by yourself.

1. Hire A Plugin Developer3
This is image title

One of the best ways to customize a WordPress plugin is by hiring a plugin developer. There are many plugin developers listed in the WordPress directory. You can contact them and collaborate with world-class WordPress developers. It is quite easy to find a WordPress plugin developer.

Since it is not much work and doesn’t pay well or for the long term a lot of developers would be unwilling to collaborate but, you will eventually find people.

2. Creating A Supporting Plugin

If you are looking for added functionality in an already existing plugin go for this option. It is a cheap way to meet your needs and creating a supporting plugin takes very little time as it has very limited needs. Furthermore, you can extend a plugin to a current feature set without altering its base code.

However, to do so, you have to hire a WordPress developer as it also requires some technical knowledge.

3. Use Custom Hooks

Use the WordPress hooks to integrate some other feature into an existing plugin. You can add an action or a filter as per your need and improve the functionality of the website.

If the plugin you want to customize has the hook, you don’t have to do much to customize it. You can write your own plugin that works with these hooks. This way you don’t have to build a WordPress plugin right from scratch. If the hook is not present in the plugin code, you can contact a WordPress developer or write the code yourself. It may take some time, but it works.

Once the hook is added, you just have to manually patch each one upon the release of the new plugin update.

4. Override Callbacks

The last way to customize WordPress plugins is by override callbacks. You can alter the core functionality of the WordPress plugin with this method. You can completely change the way it functions with your website. It is a way to completely transform the plugin. By adding your own custom callbacks, you can create the exact functionality you desire.

We suggest you go for a web developer proficient in WordPress as this requires a good amount of technical knowledge and the working of a plugin.

Webpack: A Bundler for Javascript and Friends

webpack

Webpack is a module bundler. Its main purpose is to bundle JavaScript files for usage in a browser, yet it is also capable of transforming, bundling, or packaging just about any resource or asset.

Install

Install with npm:

npm install --save-dev webpack

Install with yarn:

yarn add webpack --dev

Introduction

Webpack is a bundler for modules. The main purpose is to bundle JavaScript files for usage in a browser, yet it is also capable of transforming, bundling, or packaging just about any resource or asset.

TL;DR

  • Bundles ES Modules, CommonJS, and AMD modules (even combined).
  • Can create a single bundle or multiple chunks that are asynchronously loaded at runtime (to reduce initial loading time).
  • Dependencies are resolved during compilation, reducing the runtime size.
  • Loaders can preprocess files while compiling, e.g. TypeScript to JavaScript, Handlebars strings to compiled functions, images to Base64, etc.
  • Highly modular plugin system to do whatever else your application requires.

Get Started

Check out webpack's quick Get Started guide and the other guides.

Browser Compatibility

Webpack supports all browsers that are ES5-compliant (IE8 and below are not supported). Webpack also needs Promise for import() and require.ensure(). If you want to support older browsers, you will need to load a polyfill before using these expressions.

Concepts

Plugins

Webpack has a rich plugin interface. Most of the features within webpack itself use this plugin interface. This makes webpack very flexible.

NameStatusInstall SizeDescription
[mini-css-extract-plugin][mini-css]![mini-css-npm]![mini-css-size]Extracts CSS into separate files. It creates a CSS file per JS file which contains CSS.
[compression-webpack-plugin][compression]![compression-npm]![compression-size]Prepares compressed versions of assets to serve them with Content-Encoding
[html-webpack-plugin][html-plugin]![html-plugin-npm]![html-plugin-size]Simplifies creation of HTML files (index.html) to serve your bundles

Loaders

Webpack enables the use of loaders to preprocess files. This allows you to bundle any static resource way beyond JavaScript. You can easily write your own loaders using Node.js.

Loaders are activated by using loadername! prefixes in require() statements, or are automatically applied via regex from your webpack configuration.

Files

NameStatusInstall SizeDescription
[val-loader][val]![val-npm]![val-size]Executes code as module and considers exports as JS code

JSON

NameStatusInstall SizeDescription
![cson-npm]![cson-size]Loads and transpiles a CSON file

Transpiling

NameStatusInstall SizeDescription
![babel-npm]![babel-size]Loads ES2015+ code and transpiles to ES5 using Babel
![type-npm]![type-size]Loads TypeScript like JavaScript
![coffee-npm]![coffee-size]Loads CoffeeScript like JavaScript

Templating

NameStatusInstall SizeDescription
![html-npm]![html-size]Exports HTML as string, requires references to static resources
![pug-npm]![pug-size]Loads Pug templates and returns a function
![md-npm]![md-size]Compiles Markdown to HTML
![posthtml-npm]![posthtml-size]Loads and transforms a HTML file using PostHTML
![hbs-npm]![hbs-size]Compiles Handlebars to HTML

Styling

<style>![style-npm]![style-size]Add exports of a module as style to DOM
![css-npm]![css-size]Loads CSS file with resolved imports and returns CSS code
![less-npm]![less-size]Loads and compiles a LESS file
![sass-npm]![sass-size]Loads and compiles a Sass/SCSS file
![stylus-npm]![stylus-size]Loads and compiles a Stylus file
![postcss-npm]![postcss-size]Loads and transforms a CSS/SSS file using PostCSS

Frameworks

![vue-npm]![vue-size]Loads and compiles Vue Components
![polymer-npm]![polymer-size]Process HTML & CSS with preprocessor of choice and require() Web Components like first-class modules
![angular-npm]![angular-size]Loads and compiles Angular 2 Components
![riot-npm]![riot-size]Riot official webpack loader

Performance

Webpack uses async I/O and has multiple caching levels. This makes webpack fast and incredibly fast on incremental compilations.

Module Formats

Webpack supports ES2015+, CommonJS and AMD modules out of the box. It performs clever static analysis on the AST of your code. It even has an evaluation engine to evaluate simple expressions. This allows you to support most existing libraries out of the box.

Code Splitting

Webpack allows you to split your codebase into multiple chunks. Chunks are loaded asynchronously at runtime. This reduces the initial loading time.

Optimizations

Webpack can do many optimizations to reduce the output size of your JavaScript by deduplicating frequently used modules, minifying, and giving you full control of what is loaded initially and what is loaded at runtime through code splitting. It can also make your code chunks cache friendly by using hashes.

Contributing

We want contributing to webpack to be fun, enjoyable, and educational for anyone, and everyone. We have a vibrant ecosystem that spans beyond this single repo. We welcome you to check out any of the repositories in our organization or webpack-contrib organization which houses all of our loaders and plugins.

Contributions go far beyond pull requests and commits. Although we love giving you the opportunity to put your stamp on webpack, we also are thrilled to receive a variety of other contributions including:

  • Documentation updates, enhancements, designs, or bugfixes
  • Spelling or grammar fixes
  • README.md corrections or redesigns
  • Adding unit, or functional tests
  • Triaging GitHub issues -- especially determining whether an issue still persists or is reproducible.
  • Searching #webpack on twitter and helping someone else who needs help
  • Teaching others how to contribute to one of the many webpack's repos!
  • Blogging, speaking about, or creating tutorials about one of webpack's many features.
  • Helping others in our webpack gitter channel.

To get started have a look at our documentation on contributing.

If you are worried or don't know where to start, you can always reach out to Sean Larkin (@TheLarkInn) on Twitter or simply submit an issue and a maintainer can help give you guidance!

We have also started a series on our Medium Publication called The Contributor's Guide to webpack. We welcome you to read it and post any questions or responses if you still need help.

Looking to speak about webpack? We'd love to review your talk abstract/CFP! You can email it to webpack [at] opencollective [dot] com and we can give pointers or tips!!!

Creating your own plugins and loaders

If you create a loader or plugin, we would <3 for you to open source it, and put it on npm. We follow the x-loader, x-webpack-plugin naming convention.

Support

We consider webpack to be a low-level tool used not only individually but also layered beneath other awesome tools. Because of its flexibility, webpack isn't always the easiest entry-level solution, however we do believe it is the most powerful. That said, we're always looking for ways to improve and simplify the tool without compromising functionality. If you have any ideas on ways to accomplish this, we're all ears!

If you're just getting started, take a look at our new docs and concepts page. This has a high level overview that is great for beginners!!

Looking for webpack 1 docs? Please check out the old wiki, but note that this deprecated version is no longer supported.

If you want to discuss something or just need help, here is our Gitter room where there are always individuals looking to help out!

If you are still having difficulty, we would love for you to post a question to StackOverflow with the webpack tag. It is much easier to answer questions that include your webpack.config.js and relevant files! So if you can provide them, we'd be extremely grateful (and more likely to help you find the answer!)

If you are twitter savvy you can tweet #webpack with your question and someone should be able to reach out and help also.

If you have discovered a 🐜 or have a feature suggestion, feel free to create an issue on Github.

Sponsoring

Most of the core team members, webpack contributors and contributors in the ecosystem do this open source work in their free time. If you use webpack for a serious task, and you'd like us to invest more time on it, please donate. This project increases your income/productivity too. It makes development and applications faster and it reduces the required bandwidth.

This is how we use the donations:

  • Allow the core team to work on webpack
  • Thank contributors if they invested a large amount of time in contributing
  • Support projects in the ecosystem that are of great value for users
  • Support projects that are voted most (work in progress)
  • Infrastructure cost
  • Fees for money handling

Introduce Unplugin: Unified Plugin System for Vite, Rollup and Webpack

unplugin

Experimental

Unified plugin system for build tools.

Currently supports:

Hooks

unplugin extends the excellent Rollup plugin API as the unified plugin interface and provides a compatible layer base on the build tools used with.

Supported

HookRollupViteWebpack
transformInclude
transform
enforce❌*
resolveId
load
  • *: Rollup does not support using enforce to control the order of plugins. Users will need to maintain the order manually.

Usage

import { createUnplugin } from 'unplugin'

export const unplugin = createUnplugin((options: UserOptions) => {
  return {
    name: 'my-first-unplugin',
    // webpack's id filter is outside of loader logic,
    // an additional hook is needed for better perf on webpack
    transformInclude (id) {
      return id.endsWith('.vue')
    },
    // just like rollup transform
    transform (code) {
      return code.replace(/<template>/, `<template><div>Injected</div>`)
    },
    // more hooks coming
  }
})

export const vitePlugin = unplugin.vite
export const rollupPlugin = unplugin.rollup
export const webpackPlugin = unplugin.webpack

Plugin Installation

Vite

// vite.config.ts
import MyUnplugin from './my-unplugin'

export default {
  plugins: [
    MyUnplugin.vite({ /* options */ })
  ]
}

Rollup

// rollup.config.js
import MyUnplugin from './my-unplugin'

export default {
  plugins: [
    MyUnplugin.rollup({ /* options */ })
  ]
}

Webpack

// webpack.config.js
module.exports = {
  plugins: [
    require('./my-unplugin').webpack({ /* options */ })
  ]
}

Framework-specific Logic

While unplugin provides compatible layers for some hooks, the functionality of it is limited to the common subset of the build's plugins capability. For more advanced framework-specific usages, unplugin provides an escape hatch for that.

export const unplugin = createUnplugin((options: UserOptions, meta) => {

  console.log(meta.framework) // 'vite' | 'rollup' | 'webpack'

  return {
    // common unplugin hooks
    name: 'my-first-unplugin',
    transformInclude (id) { /* ... */ },
    transform (code) { /* ... */  },
    
    // framework specific hooks
    vite: {
      // Vite config
      configureServer(server) {
        // configure Vite server
      }
    },
    rollup: {
      // Rollup config
    },
    webpack(compiler) {
      // configure Webpack compiler
    }
  }
})
