WP Heart Throb

Description

Use this plugin to monitor the heart-rate of your WordPress installation.

WordPress uses an API called “Heartbeat” to monitor certain conditions and report to the user if something went wrong.

If your login cookie expires while you’re writing a post, for example, Heartbeat will open a modal window and allow you to log in again.

This plugin adds a small menu item to the WordPress toolbar that does the following things:

  • Beats every 1 second to remind you about the API
  • Throbs every interval of the Heartbeat API to confirm connection is active

Future versions of this plugin could add a drop-down to this menu with more information.

It's a great concept. Not useful per se in relation to site functionality. But a cute and nice thing to have if you spend lots of time on the back end of WordPress. It's just a tiny little bit extra that helps make it slightly more pleasant to do your work with WordPress. Plus it doesn't take up much room and I haven't experienced any conflict with anything else. 5 stars
