Kirby Plugins

  • Blanko GmbH ported their Git (GCAPC) plugin to Kirby 3. It commits and pushes changes made via the Panel in the content folder to a remote repo.

  • While Kirby comes with its own database class, if you are looking for something more powerful, the Kirby DB plugin adds support for the Illuminate\Database class.

  • The Kirby 3 Markdown Editor is a beautiful community built textarea field with visual cues and enhanced markdown features.

  • Find all plugins in the Kirby plugins repo. As a plugin dev, don't forget to add your plugin to the list.

Always test third-party plugins thoroughly before using them in production.

Kirby Themes

  • I counted 13 themes newly created or updated for Kirby 3 on https://getkirby-themes.com. Check them out and expect more to come soon.
