Empowering WP Developers
By , for WP 3.9

Piklist is awesome. It seems like the vast majority of plugins cater to the non-developer crowd. Every feature is presented in the admin menu, you can only do what you find there, and the only way to work with it is through select hooks. Often times, as a developer, I wish I could roll out the functionality a lot of these plugins offer myself, so I can tweak it for my own purpose. Enter piklist.

Piklist doesn't throw stuff all over your admin panel. In fact, it's easy to not notice it's even there. What it does is empower the developer to write sexy code. It takes all the things that we wish were better streamlined in WordPress (e.g. meta-boxes, post-to-post relationships, etc.) and brings it to you with a bow and some chocolates. It even amps up things like user capabilities, making things possible I'd never really stopped to consider.

The only complaint I'd have about Piklist is that the documentation is definitely a work-in-progress. It's not bad, but there's a lot left out. Fortunately, though, Piklist comes with excellent demos and Steve and Kevin are very helpful on their support forum.

In short:

if ( $you === 'wordpress developer' )
  $you .= ' made better with piklist';

The way WP dev should be
By , for WP 3.5.1

Piklist simply does it the best. There are a lot of other frameworks out there to try to make development easier, but nobody does it as well and as elegantly as Piklist does.

Piklist made my day...
By , for WP 3.4.2

With Piklist now is easy, to build custom backend and get this data to the frontend, because Piklist uses the core functions of WordPress. Still under development, but the support is fantastic. Looking forward for all the features coming... Thank you guys for this great tool.

I just started to develop my plugin using PIKLIST. WordPress plugin development was never that much easy. Thumbs up to PIKLIST devs.
