Jetpack is a set of plugins developed by Automattic to bring WordPress.com functionality to WordPress.org users. Despite the fact that it is one of the most downloaded plugins in the directory, many do not like the way it forces users to connect with WordPress.com to use modules that have no need for the API. Until you connect, the plugin shows an annoying banner through out your dashboard. Not to mention that a lot of these modules worked just fine in the past without the authentication until those plugins were merged into Jetpack. This was the reason why we forked the Carousel element and released 没有 Jetpack 插件的轮播. Well if you are one of the users who are annoyed by these marketing gimmicks, and you want other features than just the carousel, then you would love this. In this article we will show you how to get Jetpack features without a WordPress.com account using Slim JetPack.
First thing you need to do is install and activate 超薄喷气背包 plugin. Slim Jetpack is developed and maintained by 霍华德·梅 as an independent fork of Jetpack. It is not maintained or developed by Automattic even though the plugins directory mentions Automattic as an author.
After activating the plugin, go to 设置 » 超薄喷气背包. There you will see available modules. You can selectively activate the modules you need, and you do not need WordPress.com account to activate these modules.
Slim Jetpack 与 Jetpack 不兼容，因此您不能同时使用这两个插件。如果您需要订阅模块、WordPress.com 统计信息或依赖于 WordPress.com API 的其他模块，则必须使用 Jetpack。
While Jetpack is an awesome set of plugins, the marketing part makes it extremely annoying. But the beauty of open source is that people can build upon it. 超薄喷气背包 is an excellent alternative for users who want majority of Jetpack’s modules without connecting to WordPress.com.
