Today I’m going to tell you about one of my favorite tools for WordPress, GenerateWP.
This is a great resource for both beginner and advanced WordPress developers. Fill out just a couple fields and have your custom post type, custom query, sidebar, or taxonomy PHP generated for you. You can even submit your own WordPress snippet to help others who could reuse your code!
I’d recommend hand-writing as much code as possible of you are a WordPress novice, though. Resources that automate parts of the theming process are a helpful way to work smarter, but should not be used to avoid learning how to do these things.
Have fun flying through your functions file now!
