It might just be the form you have always been looking for. I like it. It is subtle, not overwhelmingly complicated and it integrates pretty well in any design!

Dear @michelegiorgi, thank you for this cool plugin. I really enjoy using it and it is and was a pleasure to extend all forms to my needs. Thanks to your documentation in the gist 😉

Thank you for this excellent form. I will be donating. I also don’t mind paying for a full lifetime version (please NO subscriptions) for features such as form validation of phone number, emails, etc.. Great job.
