We strive to keep FacetWP fast and lightweight, while also being highly extendable. That’s where the Add-ons system comes into play.
Add-ons are plugins that “hook” into FacetWP itself, adding extra functionality. Since they’re separate plugins, you only install the ones you need, keeping FacetWP bloat-free.
What’s been done so far?
FacetWP currently has 8 officially-listed add-ons, and even more under development on GitHub.
What could I build?
There are tons of great ideas for potential FacetWP add-ons, including:
- Relevanssi integration
- ElasticPress integration
- CSV export (e.g. export the currently filtered results)
- Statistics (most popular facet choices, etc)
- Map-based results, or integration with an existing mapping plugin
Where do I start?
First, let us know what you’re interested in building, and whether you want to charge for it.
If you want to build a premium plugin and want to host the payment process system yourself, we’d be happy to link to your site for free. Otherwise, we could handle the payment processing for a small fee (to be determined).
