Using the WordPress Customizer to Build Beautiful Plugin Settings Pages

With some of the latest changes to the customizer in WordPress, it has become much more than just a theme customizer. Now you can take full advantage of the customizer for your plugin settings. When users can configure settings and see them reflected instantly in the design of their site, that’s a huge win for everybody.
