Spotlight Search | Search Assistant Plugin for WordPress
A fast, robust, and lightweight WordPress plugin was created to take the searching experience in WordPress to another level. I was the plugin developer for this project.

This project was inspired by the Spotlight search of macOS; that idea was implemented using a keyboard shortcut. Pressing Control, Shift, and the Spacebar together would bring up a popup search box powered by Ajax. It starts showing results as soon as the user stops writing the search keyword.

Besides, there was an assistant at the bottom right corner, which showed a popup with the most recent posts and a search box. Users could search posts, forums, topics, replies, and any other custom post type if it existed on the website. The admin could adjust which post types to show as the search result.

Also, there was a form to send a quick email to the website's admin, and the admin could change that email and set it to any custom email. Users could contact the support provider very quickly using that email.

Deski WordPress Theme
A SaaS landing page WordPress theme that consists of 11 homepages and around 40 pages. This theme is targeted at SaaS providers who want to showcase their products.

I worked on the theme as a theme developer at CreativeGigs. Also, I used the Gutenberg template pattern library and Redux framework plugin to create the theme options for the plugin and ACF PRO for creating meta boxes for pages and posts.

Themx Maximum Upload File Size
A simple, lightweight, ad-free WordPress to increase WordPress's maximum file size limit. While working on a client website, I realized that the maximum upload size was too small. I tried existing plugins from, but all the plugins had loaded ads, so I decided to create this lightweight ad-free WordPress plugin and released it in the official WordPress plugin repository.

BBP Core WordPress Plugin
A WordPress plugin for powering the bbPress forum and support community with valuable features. As a plugin developer at Spider-themes, I created this plugin for them.

It has a custom Admin UI created to manage forums and topics from one place and arranged in a hierarchical structure, as well as a number of features:

• A solved topic feature enables a forum admin to mark topics as solved.
• A private reply feature helps users safely send essential notes and credentials to forum admins.
• A voting feature helps upvote and downvote forums so that the best answer can be determined.
• Attachment features enable users to upload attachments with their replies.

This plugin works best for people who want to create social question-and-answer websites.

Habu | Agency Adobe XD Template
An agency web user interface design that was created using the Adobe XD design tool. I made it back in 2020 as a simple but modern user interface to present to an agency, listing its services, company portfolio, blogs, frequently asked questions, career page, etc.

eCommerce Website for Book Store
A WordPress-based eCommerce website powered by WooCommerce plugin. This shop is focused on selling books online. This shop connects with Facebook shop and syncs the products.

Buyers can come and create accounts, save their billing and shipping addresses, add products to their cart, and pay using their local payment gateways to buy products.

The owner of the website receives email as soon as there is an order on the website.

Custom WordPress Plugin
A custom WordPress plugin to create REST API endpoints and integrate WooCommerce capabilities with the Flutter mobile application—bringing the functionalities of both single and multivendor eCommerce websites into the Flutter app.

As a WordPress plugin developer, I created the user authentication and deliveryman messaging. This includes updating the WooCommerce product and variation list, category lists, product data, and order status, adding custom order notes, and sending push notifications using Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM).

I used WordPress REST API to accomplish this task. This plugin will enable the company to create and sell products and services made with the Flutter mobile app.

The company has so far sold products over $10,000 as passive earnings. This plugin will help them thrive and earn at least double this amount next year.
