Last Updated: 2009-03-23 A plugin that simulates the WordPress.org plugin directory, allowing plugin developers to easily showcase their work.
Ideally all open source WordPress plugins could be hosted at WordPress.org. Unfortunately, that is not the case (not yet anyway) and publishing your own plugins can be a pain. This plugin solves that problem by allowing plugin developers to showcase all their plugins just by dropping them into a folder.
Plugin Showcase works much the same as the WordPress.org plugin directory. It looks through the given folder, parses any 'readme.txt' files and PHP files containing meta data in the header, and returns a neat array of all the meta data.
