    This is a very nice walk through Sarah of what can be done with the Customizer. Damian is right: eventually the Customizer will be an amazing feature. From what I understand, Menu Customizer is a bit more controverial though. WordPress.org would have less issues if there were a dev version and a stable version. The stable version could be for businesses while the dev version could go out to people who enjoy playing with their websites and playing with technology.

    I love that definition of politics, ‘and by politics I mean people arguing but getting nowhere,’

    Brilliant.

    “The API is extremely easy to use..”

    Damien is spot on here. This is one of the nicest implemented APIs in WordPress right now. Regardless of whatever stance you take on it (because that’s not the point of the this comment), working with The Customizer itself is great from a development perspective.

    It’s almost recipe-like. There’s a certain set of steps to follow. Once done, you’ve got a feature implemented and it looks great. Sometimes it’s as fast as a day. Other times, it takes something like a week. From there, it can be more.

    Regardless of how complex your feature, The Customizer as an API is underrated.

    Nice to see the Customizer API used for something useful for a change instead of replacing parts of wordpress that already worked perfectly well. ;)

    Cool simple plugin, works well. As fan of customizer I hope more plugins will go this way.

    I think this is going to be part of my standard plugin installs with WP. The use of Customizer API in this intuitive fashion, feels great. Customizer definitely seems to get an up vote here.

    I fell in love with customizer within 2 days of using it. No more option panels for me now.

    A plugin’s fantastic and creative implementation of the Customizer. I already loved the Customizer API as a theme developer, but other ways it can enhance the WordPress experience are still out there to be explored by the devs’ community.

    Awesome, it really is a nice and useful plugin. Now clients can edit those things without bothering me :P. You always do excellent articles Sarah.

    Hey Sarah,

    Just thought I’d mention we’ve been playing around with Email Templates for a bit at WooThemes. We have a plugin that allows you to modify all of the WooCommerce Email Templates. It looks remarkably similar to the plugin above. http://www.woothemes.com/products/woocommerce-email-customizer/

    And I gave a talk about it at LoopConf: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7usuZRBsyk8

      Wow yep the look very similar. I didn’t know about that woocommerce plugin to be honest and I hope Woo guys are not mad at me ;)
