This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



This plugin is required by other plugins I have developed. Take a look at the readme.txt in the /doc/ directory to know what can minimax do.

These are the plugins that use minimax:


  1. Decompress and upload /minimax/ to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress


Why minimax?

Because it’s a minimal ajax library.

How do yo dare to create another Ajax library?

Yes, I know there are many Ajax libraries available, but they are too complex and I need just the basic part. Also add those libraries in each plugin would be a redundanct code situation.

But, you know, there is an Ajax library in WP!

Yes, there is an Ajax library in WP, but I need an extra element it hasn’t, and hacking the WP Ajax library wasn’t an user friendly situation in order to make a plugin easy to install by common users. A common user wants to install, not to hack.

Can I use minimax with my plugins?

Yes you can. Take a look at the readme file in /doc/ directory, and see the example. Remember this is an Ajax library, so it has the same limits other Ajax libraries do have.
