About Custom Tables

Custom Tables (CT) is a WordPress developers toolkit to handle custom database table workflow similar to WordPress CPT.

Check example.php file included on this project to see a few examples to get it working.

CT has been developed as internal library for GamiPress plugin in order to bring to GamiPress's logs and user earnings tables the same features as WordPress post types (admin UI, cached query, rest API endpoints, etc).

Important: CT public API is in development phase, this means current version is unstable and much of the current features will change. To use this library on live project be sure you know you are doing!

Contributions are really appreciated! Looking for help to standarize functions and hooks as well as for documentation.
