WordPress plugin creation

Hello guys,

I am trying to build a WordPress Plugin, and I’ve read the plugin requirements here: https://help.author.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000510603-WordPress-Plugin-Requirements
I want to know if you guys, who build directly WordPress themes, or WordPress plugins, use some special programs / scripts / plugins to test the most of the requirements that Envato requests.
If you could help me on this I would appreciate it.
Thank you in advance :slight_smile:

Best regards.

Hello @EZCode

There is no such scripts or plugins to get this type of things verifications. You just need to follow industry best practices and rules and your item will get approved.


Nitepad ++ is enough :slight_smile:

I’d recommend using Eclipse as IDE. It has HTML, Javascript, CSS formatters and validators built in. It’s an advanced IDE that can be used for various web applications (enterprise, small web apps, etc) in various languages (PHP, Java, etc) It’s highly customizable and has a lot of plugins available. It already does many of those checks specified in the article you posted.

Also, no matter what IDE you prefer, to keep in line with WordPress requirements and guidelines specified above, I’d suggest also using a PHP Sniffer configured with some rules like https://github.com/WordPress-Coding-Standards/WordPress-Coding-Standards which can be configured for your favorite IDE. It saves you time and it’s a valuable help when developing for WordPress.
