Since the day I shifted to Macbook, I fell in love with Terminal. Terminal is minimal, hackable, fast and to the point. There are so many benefits of being a terminal junkie that I’d have to write another post some day. Today I intend to write about how I zip WordPress themes through terminal whilst ignoring hidden .DS_Store files added [...]Ahmad Awais
Today while working over a premium WordPress theme I had to solve two problems. First of all I needed to build a custom WordPress query through which I could display posts from a particular term while excluding other particular terms. Secondly, I wanted to provide end-user with a select-2 based drop down menu to select from the present terms [...]Ahmad Awais
I love reading transparency reports, where businesses like Buffer, Mattermark and others at Baremetrics share everything about how their companies work, how much they pay for a particular role and how much profit they earn. This is a new trend and I can see some startups in WordPress community are picking up on that. WPRocket by Jean [...]Ahmad Awais
Hey there, YOU ARE WRONG!!! (Yes! this is a strongly opinionated article, my opinion, which might not get me featured at Smashing Magazine, but it’s totally worth your time). Being Human? Are You?# Stop jerking around and start working over something which really matters. You cannot live your life over ideas you feel passionate about. [...]Ahmad Awais

Or have you ever seen a layman who cannot design, who doesn’t know a thing about aesthetics, sharing shots at Dribbble? I am pretty sure your answer is NO! We Developers/designers Are [...]Ahmad Awais
Before I go ahead and explain what’s what and what happened, I’d like to share how I used to work and how I keep optimizing my workflow. So, here it is. I was one of those designers/developers who spend a 30% of their time actually building stuff while spending the remaining in research to follow the best possible path. Even when [...]Ahmad Awais
Today when I woke up, and started browsing Facebook, one of my friends in WordPress community Matt Cromwell asked a question which deserved answer in form of a blog post. Or should I say, I started to comment, then built a flow diagram and finally ended up creating the featured image. Question# A list of requirements for all your Premium [...]Ahmad Awais
It’s hard to admit but there were days when I used to be scared of those hardcore terminal commands. It was only when I tried and fell in love with the process simplicity attached minimal effort to get a good deal of work done through it. Well, long story short, as you know I am a WordPress Developer, so having to upload WordPress plugins [...]Ahmad Awais
Hey folks! It’s been a while since I wrote a piece here. I’ve been very busy with a premium WordPress Framework which I am building from the ground up for about last ten months (which will probably never see the light of the day). While building it, I had to build an impressive hero block or unit whatever you call it nowadays. [...]Ahmad Awais
