Plugin hooks for Plugin activity (2 posts)

    I would like to know if there are any hooks available which can be used to detect other WordPress plugins activity. Basically I would like to trigger an action when an administrator:

    1. installs a plugin
    2. activates a plugin
    3. deactivates a plugin
    4. Uninstalls / deletes a plugin

    Thanks in advance for your answers.

    There are 'activated_plugin' and 'deactivated_plugin' actions. I'm unaware of a way to detect if the files were simply installed. There is a 'uninstall_{$file}' action, but of course you need to know what $file is. In any case, it's possible to add or delete plugin files without WP being involved at all, so install and uninstall actions would be unreliable.
