Assistant – Every Day Productivity Apps

Beschreibung

Assistant is a new way to work with WordPress. It’s an every-day productivity tool that lets you navigate your WordPress site and handle quick tasks without needing to go to the WordPress Admin area. For example, you can quickly find a page or post and update its title or slug. You can upload media and navigate to attachment pages. You can approve or reject comments. You can even run plugin and theme updates.

Assistant is an open source project from the same team that makes Beaver Builder. It’s free and being developed in public. Try it and let us know what you think!

Yes! All of the core Assistant features are free and will remain so.

No, Assistant is a standalone plugin and can be used with any WordPress installation on its own.

Does Assistant provide a public API for developers to create new apps?

Our API for creating new apps and extending the existing ones is in development and we’ll be talking more about it as we near 1.0 later this year. We’ll be sharing more details about that as we get closer to that milestone.

Great plugin, first I didn't see the potential but when working with it, it is a GREAT time-saver. Also great to see that the BeaverBuilder team is innovating WordPress!

All I can say is this is a very cool plugin. Glad it exists. Really makes content management a lot easier on the frontend. The plugin is lightning fast. This honestly is so much more functional than the default WordPress toolbar, aesthetically pleasing with a simple UI.

5 mins after installing I already luv this plugin! Thanks to Paul C's video showcasing this today. To have so many easy access/edit options and such a variety all just few clicks away, Luv the UI and a big time saver indeed! KUDOS to the developers and hoping 3 party plugins will be able to access via open API etc so this can grow in a big way for so many of us. Already a blessing 100!
