Plugin / The RocketBar

Code by Jinx



The RocketBar is a new, faster (FREE) way to get around in WordPress. Instead of clicking from page to page, just hit a keyboard shortcut and immediately
go where you’re headed!

The plugin is designed after the OSX Spotlight Search feature, and uses a keybind of SHIFT + SPACE to open.

Why should you LOVE RocketBar?

RocketBar enables you (the site owner) access to a faster WordPress. With RocketBar, you can spend more time checking analytics and stats, moderating
comments, and adding content, and less time finding where you need to go.

With a robust code base, leveraging WordPress’s hosted CSS and jQuery, you won’t be slowed down by our bite-sized client-side code base.

Using RocketBar is simple. No setup necessary. Just install and go!

What’s Next?

To track the development of RocketBar, find us on GitHub!

The following items are being looked at for additions to a future version of RocketBar:

  • Command API for personal modifications (This is complete, but yet to be documented.)
  • Quick selects (SHIFT + NUM to select an option from the list)
  • Even better fuzzy matching
  • Plugin-specific integrations (such as BuddyPress, bbPress, and various caching plugins)
  • Bar Themes

If you would like to suggest an addition or change, tell us in the Support forums!
