Services for the development of web plugins
First you need to understand what exactly is the importance of plugins. They are independent software modules that integrate with the main programs (which they are intended to work with) and expand their useful functionality. From a software point of view, plugins are built like user digital libraries. However, it is important to understand that a plugin is an addition not only to programs on a computer, but also to a website engine on the Internet.
It is very difficult for software creators to “please” all users by satisfying all their wishes when creating any software product. But here plug-in developers (from the English “plugin”) enter the arena, whose “web-add-ons” significantly increase the user demand for the base program. It is quite natural that numerous services for the development of web plugins have appeared on the market.
OnePix is not a WordPress plugin development company. But our specialists have deep experience in developing custom plugins for a wide variety of software. If you have an idea of creating an add-on to a certain software package, then feel free to hire our employees, and you will get a working new plugin within a clearly defined time frame.
What is OnePix plugin development experts position?
So, in the general case, a plug-in is a software block that can be installed in the main software client to add new features to it. However, not every mobile application or computer program provides for the ability to install plug-ins. This feature should be specifically provided by the developers of the base client. And of course, the plugin cannot work independently (that is, without the base program).
By the number of plugins created for each software client, one can judge the demand for the former. A large number of add-ons aggregate around themselves only really popular programs. Any plug-in can be downloaded on the website of the developer of each software package. And here you need to be careful not to download plugins from unverified resources. Such add-on clients may contain embedded viruses (including even those that have gone unnoticed by the developers).
OnePix specialists pay special attention to the security of the created software add-ons. Here, as in medicine, the main thing is the principle of “do no harm!” Only in this case we are talking about software. Therefore, when creating new plugins, special attention is paid to the testing phase.
Features of custom plugin development
The services for the development of web plugins itself is a software development, although not independent. Here plugin integration is needed. That is why the development stages of such products are very similar to the stages in the creation of mobile applications, but there are also a number of significant differences, for example, special plugin requirements should be taken into account. It makes sense to evaluate what you should pay attention to, at least in order to evaluate your own strengths in case you want to turn the original idea of the plugin into reality.
The visual part of the plug-in must be adapted to the current template of the base software package. It must be part of this program and be fully consistent with it. In addition, the work of animation effects is checked; fonts; navigation links, another key functionality is tested.
This requires initial testing, which includes:
- checking the adaptability of the layout of the program code on various devices with different screen resolutions (that is, on laptops, smartphones or tablets);
- evaluation of program code compatibility for various operating systems;
- plugin adaptability to different browsers (Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Opera, Safari).
Working with changeable settings
Usually, OnePix programmers transfer all settings, as well as variables and coefficients, to the “for administrator” section in order to simplify their subsequent editing. Thus, an additional menu section is created, where absolutely all program settings are concentrated. As a result, both setting parameters for adapting the plug-in to the base program and compiling instructions for using the plug-in are greatly simplified. Also in the section it is convenient to customize paid plugins.
Custom WordPress plugin development
The development environment, that is the platform on which the software add-on will be created, the most popular among developers (including OnePix specialists) is WordPress website (best of all, the latest version is 5.8.3). This “environment” is where all further development, configuration, and resulting testing (WordPress plugin customization) take place.
The WordPress plugin development advantage is that the vast majority of plugin developers use this resource. This will provide additional technical support to the programming community (WordPress plugin developers) in case, for example, if it is necessary to supplement or even reformat custom plugin solutions or plugin upgradation while development process. It’s worth to remember that timely project updates is an important part of plugin development services. (By the way, WordPress plugin maintenance is mush easier then on the other platforms).
Functional development of WordPress plugins
The most important thing when creating a plugin is the idea. Further, to translate it into reality, you need 2 things: this is WordPress (at least) and a team of competent specialists who provides services for the development of web plugins, and are ready for custom WordPress plugin development according to programming standards and rules. The functionality of the add-on to the application follows from his idea, and the compatibility of the software package is quite simple to ensure using WordPress.
Developing new or fixing old from the point of view of plugin development company
You can find a huge number of both “white” and “gray” plug-ins for any computer program in the Internet. They best meet the needs of selected category of users. However, sometimes such a plugin “spoils” over time, that is, it ceases to live up to the expectations placed on it: it starts to fail and puts a significant load on the hosting.
Correction of such problems is also a completely independent market with a large amount of solvent demand. It is quite possible that it will be more efficient to “cure” an existing plugin instead of creating a new one. The most effective way to do this is to hire plugin developers from OnePix. It’s not WordPress plugin development company, but our development team of WordPress experts can provide services for the development of web plugins in high level.
These are the next ones:
- Promptly develop the necessary functionality for your project.
- Explain the features of the add-on to the customer.
- Justify the features of a particular solution when creating or fixing a plugin (including WordPress plugins).
- Plugin customization services.
Often, fixing existing plugins (strengthening functional options, preventing bugs, and even extending adding) cost cheaper than a “fresh” WordPress custom plugin development. Therefore, it is very important to formulate a competent technical task in details for the performers at the very beginning of development.

Pre-project Documentation preparation
The pre-project stage is a detailed architectural and construction plan of a project – a set of instructions reflecting the general logic of a web service to achieve extraordinary results.
Preparation of Technical Requirements
At this stage, we create a document describing the goals and objectives set for the developers and implement the optimal development strategy.
This consists of prototyping and development of design layouts.
The design stage is devoted to creating visual block diagrams that define the resource architecture and the location of all elements of platforms.
During this stage, we hand over our design layouts to our team of front-end developers. They turn the template into code and link the structure to the control system. Next, the layout files go through the testing stage.
This stage includes setting up the server, implementing the functional areas of the site, and linking them to the CMS system database, integrating the system with the user, etc.
This stage precedes delivery to the customer. It is accompanied by final project testing, code review (code diagnostics and optimization), and the project launch.
Websites may crash from time to time, so it’s essential to ensure a solid support process. We are a reliable partner who will live up to your expectations and ensure top-notch site support.
