ItalyStrap will add powerful features to your WordPress site.

ItalyStrap is also on github.


I developed this plugin with many features because I need them in all sites created for my clients, it also extends the ItalyStrap Theme Frameworks functionality but it works fine with all WordPress themes.

Think about ItalyStrap like a Jetpack with many functionality that make your site more powerful and extensible, for example: Lazyload for image with srcset support, widget and shortcode for Twitter Bootstrap Carousel (with lazyload support), widget for displaying lists of posts type with a lot of options and so on, see above for the full list of featured.

This plugin is fully developed in OOP. It utilizes DI Container, Dependency Injection, Polymorphism, Inheritance, etc.
If you are a developer you can extend it with his API (Dev docs coming soon).

Skills required

Some functionalities need to be personalized with lines of code, for example if you use the new widget for displaying posts you have to add your own CSS style to make it look like your site (you can add it in ItalyStrap > settings > Style > Custom CSS or in your theme style.css), I’m working on building some basic code snippets and documentation, but I need a lot of time to do it, please be patient with me :-).

ItalyStrap will always be free

This is my thanks for what WordPress has given to me.
