Kwik Framework


Kwik Framework is a framework for rapid development of WordPress themes and Plugins. It lets you quickly create option pages with dynamic error handling, programmatically generate markup where needed and provides custom inputs for your theme or plugin.


Simply installing the plugin provides a robust API that lets you quickly create settings pages for you plugin or theme.

Generating Setting Page

add_action( 'admin_menu', 'my_plugin_add_admin_menu' );
add_action( 'admin_init', 'my_plugin_settings_init' );

function my_plugin_add_admin_menu() {
 // add_submenu_page( 'edit.php?post_type=kwik-framework', __('Kwik Framework Settings', 'kwik'), __('Settings', 'kwik'), 'manage_options', 'kwik_framework', 'my-plugin' );
 add_options_page('Kwik Framework Settings', 'Kwik Framework', 'manage_options', 'my-plugin', 'my-plugin'.'_settings');

function my_plugin_settings_init() {
 $kwik_settings = new KwikSettings();
 $defaultSettings = my_plugin_default_options();
 $kwik_settings->settings_init(MyPlugin, 'my-plugin', $defaultSettings);

function kwik_framework_settings() {
 $settings = my_plugin_get_options();
 echo '<div class="wrap">';
   echo KwikInputs::markup('h2', __('Framework Settings', 'kwik'));
   echo KwikInputs::markup('p', __('Set the API keys and other options for your website. Kwik Framework needs these settings to connect to Google fonts and other APIs.','kwik'));
   echo '<form action="options.php" method="post">';
     echo KwikSettings::settings_sections('my-plugin', $settings);
   echo '</form>';
 echo '</div>';

function my_plugin_get_options() {
 return get_option('my-plugin', my_plugin_default_options());

function my_plugin_default_options() {
 $my_plugin_default_options = array(
   'section_1' => array(
     'section_title' => __('Section One', 'kwik'),
     'section_desc' => __('This is the description for section one.', 'kwik'),
     'settings' => array(
       'sec_1_first_option' => array(
         'type' => 'text',
         'title' => __('First Option', 'kwik'),
         'value' => ''
       'sec_2_second_option' => array(
         'type' => 'text',
         'title' => __('Second Option', 'kwik'),
         'value' => ''
   'section_2' => array(
     'section_title' => __('Section Two', 'kwik'),
     'section_desc' => __('This is the description for section two.', 'kwik'),
     'settings' => array(
       'sec_2_first_option' => array(
         'type' => 'text',
         'title' => __('Option One Title', 'kwik'),
         'value' => ''
       'sec_2_second_option' => array(
         'type' => 'text',
         'title' => __('Option Two Title', 'kwik'),
         'value' => ''

 return apply_filters('my_plugin_default_options', $kf_default_options);

That’s it. The above code block will add a new options page to your theme or plugin with automatic field validation. In this example, options are added to the my_plugin_default_options multi-dimensional array. Type is defined as the input type to be used such as text and select but Kwik Framework also provides the following custom types img, font, toggle, color, link, spinner and nonce. The custom inputs can be easily extended using the input or multi types and supplying your own attributes.

Generating markup

$inputs = new KwikInputs();

$link = $inputs->markup('a', "This is a link", array("class" => "test_link", href="", "title" => "Test Title"));

echo $link;
