Choosing plugins, libraries, and frameworks — Draft Podcast image/svg+xml

In this episode, Joe and Brian talk their considerations when selecting which plugins, libraries, and frameworks to use with WordPress.

An interesting discussion and well worth a listen. I’m not sure I agree with Brian’s idea of security in numbers — using the number of active installations of a plugin as an indicator to how trustworthy and secure it is. Personally, I’d be more inclined to agree with Joe’s approach of only installing plugins if it’s absolutely necessary and/or it’s too much trouble to write the functionality yourself.
