With the release of the latest update of Jetpack 2.8 with support for Markdown, i decided to take a look at what Jetpack have to offer me and see if i can live without it.
What i need from Jetpack plugin: #
- WordPress.com Stats
- Spelling and Grammar
- JSON API
- Enhanced Distribution
The Alternatives: #
- FeedPress + Buffer
- Google Analytics + Piwik
- Gallery Carousel Without JetPack
- TinyMCE Spellcheck
- JSON API + JSON REST API
- Navigate to Setting / Writing Settings / and put http://rpc.pingomatic.com/ where it says: Update Services
- Pushover Notifications for WordPress + Pushover Notifications iOS App
So i gave it a shot, and deleted the plugin and replaced with the plugins i listed above, it’s been a while now and i don’t miss Jetpack at all, if you feel like doing the same, just give it a shot, you won’t miss a thing.
