Over the last couple of months we’ve been working hard on the latest addition to our product line – a complete billing suite powered by WordPress – and we’re happy to announce that the free version has been shipped to the WordPress Plugin directory recently 🙌🏻
If you are working as a Freelancer or are responsible for Accounting&Billing in a small agency and are looking for an easy-to-use, future-proof and privacy-related solution to create Invoices, Quotes and basic Accounting records, go on and give Billy a try.
The plugin will work with any WordPress theme that supports the (new) Block editor.
Any valuable comments and suggestions are highly appreciated and will be examined. In the meantime we are getting the PRO add-on ready which will soon be available for purchase under https://them.es/plugins/billy.
It will have some really useful features and integrates CRM tools which will speed up your billing process rapidly.
Upcoming Birthdays widget
Enhanced billing features
Useful stats & charts
Integration of the WordPress Export Personal Data tool
…and much more
Since it will be available as an add-on for the basic version, installing the free Plugin from the WordPress directory is required in any case – so nothing is ever lost by checking Billy out.
Important notice: The Grunt config in our Starter Themes got replaced by gulp + webpack in the latest releases.
Gulp is quite similar to Grunt and allows to automate tasks like SASS > CSS compilation.
According to this blog post, Bootstrap v3 will not receive security updates anymore and that’s why the Bootstrap 3 download option has been marked as deprecated and will be removed shortly. Once Bootstrap v5 is published, this new version will become our default Starter Theme and Bootstrap v4 will become an optional download.
jQuery was very useful a while ago but browser support for modern web standards has improved a lot and most JS frameworks started to drop any external dependencies in favor of plain/vanilla JS.
Reducing the loading time of web applications and minimizing HTTP requests is one of the main goals of many developers. And since jQuery is an external library which needs to be downloaded first, avoiding it (if possible) makes a lot of sense.
Material Components for the web 2.0 has been released recently with new features and bugfixes. The WordPress Material Starter Theme has been tested with the latest version 2.2 and the code base got updated.
