Dear Kirki Users,
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the sunsetting of the Kirki WordPress plugin. I have made the difficult decision to discontinue the development and support of Kirki.
When I first acquired Kirki in early 2020, I had big plans for it. Although we were able to execute on step one of the 2-step plan we had for the plugin, as time went on, I lost passion for the project mainly due to the direction WordPress core has taken with Gutenberg.
It’s clear to me now that I was too ambitious in taking on the project.
Kirki is now for sale
With that said, I am now looking for someone to adopt the Kirki plugin. The current active install count in the WordPress repository is 600,000, which presents a great opportunity to revamp the plugin and get it in front of actual users. I believe that there’s still great potential in Kirki, and I’m looking for someone who shares that vision to take it forward.
The plugin is for sale.
This of course includes all assets such as the website, GitHub, PRO Extensions, etc.
However, it’s important to note that no further updates are planned for Kirki core, nor the paid extensions. While the paid extensions remain for sale on the website, no updates are expected.
If you’re interested in adopting the plugin, please reach out here.
It’s important to me that Kirki gets into the right hands. I hope that someone can take on the project that sees the opportunity and gives Kirki the attention & love that it deserves.
We understand that this news may be disappointing for our loyal Kirki users. We want to thank you for your support over the years. It’s been an honor to serve you, and we’re grateful for the time we had to work on the plugin.
Limited support & updates
While we will no longer be actively developing or updating the Kirki plugin, we will continue to provide limited support to our users. This includes fixing critical bugs and addressing incompatibility issues that may arise from WordPress core updates.
Again, thank you for your support. We wish you all the best.
