Graft Framework

Graft is an little Framework for WordPress Plugins development. It give you clean code architecture for OOP and MVC pattern in your Plugin.

Why Graft ?


I am an developer who love OOP, so when i began WordPress Development i was frustrated that some Plugins don't use OOP.

Of course, I understand that some little Plugins don't have to use OOP, so this Framework is destinated for big Plugins with complex features.

Make more Developer Friendly Plugins

During my experience of WordPress Developer, when i was using some Plugin i often asked sames questions :

  • Which Hooks uses this Plugin ?
  • Is this Plugin give some availables Filters ?
  • Is it possible to override this Plugin's Templates ?

Main Graft Features


In an WordPress Plugin you do not have to make OOP Code (you can use only functions) But with Graft, all things is only Object for better code quality.

MVC Pattern and Template Overriding from Theme

Graft use the Twig Template Engine to allow you to doing MVC Pattern in your Plugin. And Graft allow developers to override all Plugin's Template from their Theme (if you give permission)


In Graft, due to the OOP, all basics WordPress functions like add_action('wp_head') or add_filter() are Annotations like @Action(name="wp_head"), so you don't have to specify any callback, it use the specified Method.


All Plugins made with Graft have an Dependency Injection Container (PHP-DI Container) for using autowiring with your Classes or with Graft Injectable Components.

And the container have the list of all WordPress Components used by the Plugin (Action, Filter, Admin Page ...)


This is code example with Graft Framework

use Graft\Framework\Annotation\Filter;   //use Filter Annotation
use Graft\Framework\Injectable\Renderer;

 * Class that will be construct by the Factory
 * This class can be injected with autowiring in other Class.
class MyHookManager
     * HookManager Renderer
     * Use for Template Rendering
     * @var Renderer
    private $renderer;

     * MyHookManager Constructor
     * using autowiring for dependency injection
     * @param Renderer $renderer
    public function __construct(Renderer $renderer)
        $this->renderer = $renderer;

     * This Method will be add to 'the_title' Filter by Annotation
     * And 'the_title' Filter will be added in the Plugin Container
     * for other developers who want to know wich Hooks this Plugin using.
     * @Filter(name="the_title")
     * @param string $title Current Title
     * @return string
    public function titleFilterHook(string $title)
        //some example code...
        $title = trim($title);

        // using Twig for Custom Title HTML...
        // this template can be override in the Theme in
        // (wp-content/themes/mytheme/currentPluginName/filter/title.html.twig) for example.
        return $this->renderer->render('filter/title.html.twig', ['title' => $title]);
