The WordPress toolbox you need
Machete is a WordPress plugin that solves common annoyances:
header bloat, tracking codes, maintenance mode…
If you really need it, at least make it light
Every single component of Machete is enginereed so it has the lightest possible footprint.
Each file is only loaded if needed. At the left you can see admin code is only loaded when you are in the in the admin panel.
Lots of great tools, more to come
Reduces much of the legacy code bloat in WordPress page headers. It also has some tweaks to make you site faster and safer.
Machete cookie law warning bar is really light, it won’t affect your PageSpeed score and plays well with static cache plugins.
Google Analytics tracking code manager and a simple editor to insert HTML, CSS and JS snippets or site verification tags.
Customizable maintenance page to close your site during updates or development. It has a “magic link” to grant temporary access.

This plugin cleans the entire WordPress header. Great plugin.
There a lot of functions in Machete that I’ll review only two: the maintenance mode toggle it’s great and the cookies bar is well solved
Really Handy Plugin
Testing it on a dev site, works very well.
