    Fantastic idea! I had to comment out a line of code and replace the text-domain in one of my themes on WP.org where I use the TGMPA library, but this didn’t present much of a problem. However, this solution is way better and will make the process of adding TGMPA much smoother and quicker.

    Great news. We regularly recommend TGM to theme authors that want to include Beaver Builder with their themes.

    It’s a great solution to the bundling problem that causes issues like the infamous Slider Revolution vulnerability.

    This is a good news for developers. The library is very useful. We always recommend it to users of Meta Box if they want to include the plugin in themes or plugins.

    Just wonder is there any difference between the generated results for parent theme, child theme or plugin?

      Hi Anh Tran, very good question. The answer is yes.
      The Custom TGMPA Generator can create 7 different versions depending on the settings the user chooses.

      Some examples:
      * For themes to be published on wp.org, the text domain will be adjusted. For plugins it will not be.
      * The include path in the example file will be adjusted based on whether TGMPA will be included in a parent theme, child theme or plugin.

      For details of all the differences – have a look at the table in the pull request

    A great tool! Until now I’ve had to do this manually, so this is a perfect helper. Still, can’t wait for 3.0 release.

    What a tool to recommend a Beaver Builder ;)

      Oliver, I was curious if this was something that affected you. Glad to hear it’s making life easier. We’re really big fans of this method of “bundling” themes/plugins.

      We should have a chat here soon. We’re working on a really cool feature for theme developers to bundle pre-made Beaver Builder templates with their themes! This would be in the free version of Beaver Builder that currently doesn’t have template support.

    In my theme, I had switched the version in the bower config to pull from Samuel Wood’s fork of TGMPA, which passes the theme check. I’d still prefer to be able to pull in the class externally, since I don’t like committing code that’s not mine in the theme repo (that’s what bower is for). I may keep using the fork until version 3 drops, I haven’t decided yet.

      Hi Paul, just FYI – we’ll probably release a 2.6 version before 3.0 and I’m not sure Samuel will update his fork for that.
      The Custom TGMPA Generator will stay up to date with the latest version we release and will be updated for any new code we introduce which we believe could conflict with Theme Check. Additionally it does some more detailed adjustments based on the intented use of TGMPA to make integration as easy as possible.
