On the SitePoint PHP blog there's a new post from editor Bruno Skvorc sharing his list of top 8 plugins for Grav he sees as "must haves". Grav is a flat-file based content management system that uses modern PHP practices such as Composer packages, Makdown for content and YAML for configuration.
I recently switched my blog over from Blogger to Grav, and while quite a nifty platform on its own, Grav really shines once you prop it up with some custom themes and plugins.
This post will list the plugins I believe to be essential for a developer’s personal blog, and the reasons behind each suggestion.
Among the plugins on his list are options like:
- The Grav Admin panel
- Google Analytics integration
- External link functionality
- Code highlighting
He includes examples of what the output of each looks like when integrated into the site and how to get them installed and configured. Check out the remainder of the post for more in his list of suggestions.
