One of my goals this year is to build three extensions per month to have a total of 36 new products this year. I thought about making it one per week, but I realized that’s crazy and I would end up with some half-baked code. Three per month is totally doable.
In January the following three extensions went live.
In December I saw some tweets about the Pushover App which is an iOS and Android application that has an API making it easy to send notifications from your web app. I loved the concept and wanted to do a free plugin for WordPress.org. Chris Klosowski had already built a general WordPress notifications plugin so I decided to build one for WooCommerce that would allow store owners to setup notifications to their phones of new orders, low stock, back orders and out of stock events.
WooThemes asked me to rebuild the UPS shipping module for WooCommerce. Up till now I had only built payment gateways so it was fun to build a shipping module.
Last fall Pippin Willamson asked me to build an import module for his Easy Digital Downloads ecommerce plugin. After some delay on my part this plugin went live mid-January. It was my first plugin to be added to WordPress.org which was a fun milestone.
