Kirby Plugins

In recent years, we’ve been using Kirby 3 as our content management system of choice. In this context, we created a few plugins easing content input or helping layouting.

All plugins are released under an open license (MIT) and can be used for free. Please feel free to use them in your own projects, feedback and fixes are appreciated.


There are manifold plugins for color management in Kirby 3, like Tim Ötting’s Kirby Color or Sylvain Julé’s Color Extractor and Color Palette. As we had some issues with existing solutions and needed color contrast checks, we came up with our own plugin:
