I published my first public plugin to the repository yesterday – it’s a simple little plugin that displays the current page template name and filename on the toolbar.
You can find it here: http://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-frontend-template-display/
Why build this? Frankly, it got really tedious to switch back and forth between the edit screen and frontend just to find a simple piece of info. So, I built it and it ended up saving me a bunch of time. I figured I’d publish and help other people to speed up their development time as well.
I’ll be putting up the plugin on Github so anyone can contribute and pull it down separately. Hopefully you all will have some great ideas for it!
