I'm new to the world of plugin development, but not new to php world. I'm creating a buddypress plugin for forum posts moderation (people can report a post as inappropriate), I know that there's bp-moderation, but it doesn't really work.
Anyway... I've finished the front-end part, and now I'm coding the back-end and there's something buggin me a lot:
I want to do something as simple as showing a grid with posts that have a defined value in the database table, that's all. But I couldn't find anything that helped me in creating a grid with pagination or sort, and for the other plugins that I've checked, they all do everything "by hand", coding html with php like crazy, with no abstration, taking hours to do something that has been done repeatedly by other people many many times.
So the question is, isn't there a library, or something like a framework to help us developers in creating plugins for wordpress?
Thanks in advance!
