This page is not really a configuration but another way to discover and install plugins.
Recommended plugins page
The Material Theme UI is a great plugin, but there are also literally thousands of other plugins available in the Marketplace. Some are great, some not so much, but in any case it can be a little hard to get to find out the hidden pearls in this sea of available options.
Introducing the Recommended plugins: It’s another settings page found inside the Material Theme Settings that showcases a hand-picked list of useful plugins and remarkable themes for you to discover at a glance rather than navigating the whole sea of available plugins in the Marketplace.
Most of these plugins are UI-related, grouped into three sections:
- Recommended plugins: Hand-picked list of great plugins to use alongside the Material Theme UI.
- Material Plugins: These are the standalone paid plugins that you can buy separately instead of the main plugin.
- Great Themes: Curated list of amazing themes that can be sideloaded with the Material Theme UI.
Come take a look! And if you have other great recommendations, please post them on the chat or in the GitHub repo!
Oh and by the way: this is a purely subjective list! So please don’t be mad if a plugin you love isn’t on the list!
