Schema.org ClaimReview plugin for WordPress

This is a WordPress plugin that allows publishers to add the new ClaimReview - schema.org schema for publishing factchecking reports to their posts.

You can read more about the labeling of fact checking articles in Labeling fact-check articles in Google News.

I developed this plugin in response to a specific request from a client. I would like to see it gain some contributions from the broader community of WordPress developers and factcheckers.

I think it's important to have this as a zero-dependency plugin, so it can have as low a barrier to adoption as possible. I have therefore not used any 3rd-party plugins for things like custom fields or JavaScript - only what is available with a standard WordPress plugin.
