Bricks Builder is a relatively new WordPress Page builder that's quickly growing in popularity amongst casual creators and developers alike. Released in mid-2021, it's maturing rapidly, adding powerful features with every new release.
In this article, we're going to take a look at Bricks Builders addons and third party plugins that extend the functionality of the core tool.
Most every WordPress page builder that's been around for some time has a robust ecosystem of third party addons surrounding them. These plugins and tools typically offer additional components, features, workflow enhancements, shortcuts and more - all with the goal of making your job (creating with Bricks Builder) quicker and easier.
As Bricks matures and grows older, more and more addons are being released.
To make this list, an addon needs to be specifically created to extend the functionality or design of Bricks Builder. It can impact the front end or the back end, but it can't just be a plugin that has support for Bricks. It needs to be made specifically for the site builder.

Now, we'll dive in to each individual addon. Each description will discuss general use cases, pricing, features and more to help you get a better understanding of what the Bricks Builder addon does, and how it may fit into your individual workflow.
Let's get into it!
Bricksable is a plugin that adds additional components to the Bricks Builder. Currently, the tool offers 9 new elements that helps creators add unique effects, designs, and interactions.
Here are the current elements included in this Bricks Addon:
These elements behave like native Bricks elements; they can be dragged onto the canvas, and manipulated by using the settings panel on the left. Each element comes with it's own options. For example, the Lottie Element allows you to insert a Lottie JSON file, and incorporate the next-gen animation format into a page built with Bricks.
The developers promise that more elements are on the way.

Bricks Navigator is a free plugin created by Sridhar Katakam. Sridhar is also behind BricksExtras and BricksLabs. BricksLabs, not formally included in this list, is a member-only website that has pro-level tutorials for Bricks Builder.
Bricks Navigator helps users quickly navigate between the various screens and pages that the builder adds to WordPress. For example, you can quickly get a list of all templates, click into it, and begin editing in a few seconds. This saves you from needing to go to the specific template screen, and loading the builder that way - it's just a more efficient way of navigation.
