Let's first define your role and your goals.

If your role - developer, it is must-have plugins are the ones that will facilitate your work - Advanced Custom Fields (preferably Pro), Query Monitor, Laps, etc., or a little blood to solve common tasks - Classic Editor, Disable Comments, Safe SVG, Enable Media Replace, and the like. By "low blood" meaning that they have minimal overhead, not doing anything extra and you are better still to write. Everything else they write themselves, forces from other developers, Tunis to suit your needs, and so on - over time, accumulate their own tools.

If your role is implementator (collect saytik on WP, but PHP does not know how), then the set of plugins will be different. Here it is fellow implementers will tell you which plugins are important, what needed.

If your role is the owner of the websitethat all he wants to do is closer to the implementers.

If your role - content to cut, and everything else is secondary - just select the plugins for the desired functionality and try to always keep in mind common sense - the plugin is tricked (more features, more customization, more pages in the admin panel, etc.), so it is usually slower. The more plugins the slower the site. So try to put only what is absolutely necessary and from the available options on feature choose the most lightweight. Ideally, test some, and choose one.

Now the targets. What do you want? To be able to quickly put together a website to test business ideas with minimum cost? This is one kitchen. That was quick and easy content site that can withstand serious traffic? It's a different kitchen. Online store? Even more. And in what niche this online store? Physical goods or digital? And the market local or international? This all will lead to different set of plugins. I think the point is already clear.
Quick and easy content site that can withstand serious traffic?

Exactly. Trying to choose between DLE and WordPress ohms. The first lot of ready solutions out of the box, but far fewer third-party solutions. - Cicero.Erdm commented on April 19th 20 at 12:19
@Cicero.Erdm, for DLE will not tell me he is initially not interested, we live in different universes. As for WordPress, it is all very simple:

1. WordPress itself out of the box fast.
2. Turning off unnecessary features can be further accelerated.
3. Some features need to change (for example to use a server CZK instead of wp-cron)
4. Caching on several levels:
- the code to use the mechanism of caching where appropriate
- object cache
- if you have authorized users and/or customization of responses (pages / blocks), then the fragment cache
- full page cache, preferably without the participation of PHP in General (for example nginx fastcgi_cache)

And get fantastic download speeds + actual imagine high-load.

And then everything else will depend on the concrete implementation of functionality (backend) and coding (backend). If you collect all the necessary features for light plugins or custom code, then even the primary rendering backend or dynamic queries will be fast. If laid out without a lot of heavy scripts and styles, without the constant repaints and going crazy is a 3-rd party scripts then the front will fly. - Donavon.Pouros commented on April 19th 20 at 12:22

But seriously - there are no such plugins.
On one project SEO in-house - because all of these monsters (RankMath - have gone) just an extra brake why would I need an interface for one-time settings? To drive back and forth a ton of these settings autoload flag.
Caching plugins also depending on the situation and hosting.
Lazy loading and galleries with lightboxes and sliders and contact forms are often built into topic - what for still plug-ins to put?

So it all depends on the situation, not from the fact that there is a new website - "let me not looking vpendyurit to their favorite playnice"... It doesn't work.

I love the bright green - but this does not mean that every meeting and do not care on the subject of the appointment (wedding, party, funeral, business dinner) I will come to your bright salad tights

Here are the most popular https://wordpress.org/plugins/browse/popular/ so MustHave

Really a must have plugin if is installed by default in VP :) - Frances.Spink commented on April 19th 20 at 12:23
@Frances.Spink, I would have it in the kernel at the core of stuffed)) - chester.Rempel commented on April 19th 20 at 12:26

Must have:
1. The caching plugin (my clear favorite WP Fastest Cache)
2. For the convenience of working with meth and a sickle I use another SEO plugin (like RankMath)

Additionally:
3. Optimizer image + Lazy Load

Other plugins are used to implement certain specific tasks.
And remember, with few exceptions: fewer plugins means a faster website.

To facilitate the development of complex projects using Advanced Custom Fields. I recommend to read it with the Pro version, which incidentally can be downloaded for free on the Internet. This plugin allows you to add flexible, a variety of custom fields and display them on the website.

I recommend to You, if You decide to develop for WordPress, get acquainted with the development of its themes, and then third party plugins You do not need. All the functionality You describe in skadate functions.php Your theme.
which by the way can be downloaded for free on the Internet

It is not necessary so to do for reasons 2m:
1. "Free" may well go with the "bonus" akdora.
2. Do you like it when you do client work, and you don't pay for it, because it does not consider it necessary? In adults taken for the paid services / products to pay, and not to steal. Especially for those who are your professional tool and help to make money.

I think it's time to introduce bans for advertising warez. - Donavon.Pouros commented on April 19th 20 at 12:27
For complex projects it is better not to use acf. Recently discussed this question that the complex sample meta from dB hang the engine. - Nayeli_Simon commented on April 19th 20 at 12:30
