Meilleurs commentaires des clients
Ecrit par des professionnels et des core devs de WordPress. A ne pas négliger lors de la création d'un plugin, les best-practices y sont recensées.
A mettre entre les mains de tout développeur WordPress désirant produire un cod de qualité.
Car même si une nouvelle édition serait la bienvenue (le livre date de 2011) pour profiter des nouveautés de Wordpress et de PHP, la plupart des exemples fonctionnent parfaitement sur un Wordpress 4.2, sans ou avec très peu de modifications (par exemple déclaration des constructeurs différente en PHP 5.3 ou bien quelques fonctions de l'API Wordpress qui ont été remplacées).
Ce livre en tout cas permet de bien comprendre comment fonctionne Wordpress et comment coder Widgets et Plugins en tenant compte d'aspects importants comme la sécurité ou bien le multilingue.

1. Put together an idea and outline for a book that hasn't been covered in-depth before.
2. Gather three of the most talented WordPress developers/writers and have them write the book.
3. Release the book and watch the Elves return back to Middle Earth to rejoice with men.
Professional Plugin Development, written by Ozh Richard, Justin Tadlock, and Brad Williams, is a much-needed and very timely book.
There have been several aspiring developers that have approached me saying they needed a start-from-the-basics WordPress plugin development book. And while Professional Plugin Development does teach the basics of plugin development, it quickly moves on to much more complex topics.
The book covers the topics I care most about, such as:
* WordPress Plugin Foundation and Best Practices
* WordPress Security
* WordPress Actions and Filters (aka, hooks)
* And Ajax
But the book goes beyond basic plugin development. It teaches you about plugin options, CRON for scheduling common tasks, storing data (whether it is via post types, transients, or options), the HTTP API (for retrieving remote data), users (how to set up roles and capabilities), localization (err, internationalization), and how to test plugin performance.
For a novice PHP and WordPress developer, this is a good starting point. But don't think of this book as your way to learn PHP, jQuery, or even basic WordPress (there's WordPress for Dummies for that).
This is a book written by developers for developers. And I must say that I learned a lot from this book, and I've been developing WordPress plugins and themes for almost six years.
Here are the things I learned most from this book:
* The Why. I've used a lot of the techniques from the book before, but now I have a better understanding of why the techniques should be implemented. An example is security and WordPress coding best practices.
* Rewrites and Cron. These two topics escape me (no pun intended) for some reason, but I have a much better understanding of how everything works behind the scenes.
* Security. Security can not be stressed enough, and very solid security tips are sprinkled throughout the book (and the topic even receives treatment via its own dedicated chapter).
* Multisite. I've been working with multisite for almost a year now, and it's a topic I'm still learning in-depth. The chapter gives a great explanation of terms and common pitfalls.
Last, but certainly not least, the book goes into great detail for what you should do after you've released a plugin, whether you want to release it for free in the official WordPress repo, or have it available exclusively on your own site (whether commercial or free). The book explains marketing, how to set up automatic updates (albeit a bit glossed over), and how to get the plugin on the official repo.
This is a highly recommended book, whether it be the print version, or digital.
Since then, I've become a frequent reader of Justin's blog, I've subscribed to several mailing lists for code, and I've started following quality developers - namely the authors of this book - on Twitter. It's been a slow start, but it's changed the way I look at open source and development in general.
And now comes a book written by three of the most respected developers in the WordPress community. It's well written, honest, and comes from a collective background of collaboration and been-there-done-that experience. I've been working with WordPress for more than 4 years now, and this is by far the best reference I've seen to date ... both for developers just starting with the project and for seasoned professionals who build their business on WordPress.
I've seen code written by all three of these developers, built my own systems on the shoulders of their outstanding work, and watched several others grow as developers following after their example. I can't think of any team more qualified to write about WordPress plug-in development, and I can't think of anyone else who'd do a better job.
This is an outstanding book and was definitely worth the 2-month pre-order wait to have a physical copy on my desk to mark up and turn back to. Though I'm confident that the eBook version will be just as useful for those who can't wait for overnight shipping to deliver! :-)
Apart from the basics of plug-in development - which it explains very effectively - there are many advanced subjects that any plug-in developer needs to understand. It delves into WordPress actions and hooks, security, best practices, Ajax, the HTTP API, regionalization and how to test for performance.
The book doesn't pretend to teach you PHP and WordPress - you need to be well versed in both to get the most from the material. But if you want to develop plug-ins for either the community or commercial audience, everything you need to know is in here. As an aside, the authors are very well respected WordPress coders so you really couldn't hope to learn from better teachers.
Perhaps the most lacking feature in the book is the design and development of an actual plugin. If the author had built a fully function plugin over the course of the book, I believe the material would have been more coherent and useful to the reader.
The Professional WordPress Design and Development book (also published by WROX) provided more benefit to me with my plugin development. I found the chapters on custom post types and plugins were concise and to the point. The internationalization feature of WordPress plugins was also presented in a clear and meaningful way.
This book has not been a complete loss to me, however. The chapters on Ajax and cron do provide useful techniques to developers and administrators.
Readers looking for material on WordPress plugins should consider other resources or make a thorough examination of the bbPress plugin code or, for an object orientated approach, check out the Article Forge plugin.
