WordPress + Cloudinary = Dynamic, optimized, on-the-fly images!
Bringing Cloudinary to WordPress
People have tried to bring Cloudinary to WordPress, and have really complicated the whole thing. The official Cloudinary plugin, in my opinion, is really clunky and in the way in most cases. Other solutions follow the same route, and are just too complicated. Since I wasn’t able to find a good solution for my needs, I built one myself!
Defining what a good solution is
A good solution should have the following attributes:
- It should work out of the box, with minimal to no configuration
- It should be easy, seamless and out of the way
- It can be turned off and on easily
- It should be really extendable, so developers can really harness it
Auto Cloudinary Plugin for WordPress
I’ve built a plugin based on the attributes above: Auto Cloudinary. It is a super simple, easy to use WordPress plugin which you can use to integrate your WordPress website to Cloudinary!
