WordPress Extend API ?

  1. Paolo T. (pixline)


    Now that WordPress 2.5 support plugins updating seamlessy, I think the next step is a native browse/download interface for plugins hosted in this Extend area.

    All that we need is a WordPress Extend API, maybe via XML-RPC, in order to browse available plugin (maybe only the ones compatible with the used version of WordPress). The FTP filesystem class would be powerful enough to deal with the download.

    Fully agreed on that. The TYPO3 Extension Manager comes to my mind as an example (with room for improvements, of course).

    Plus, though pixline propably doesnt mean that by API, it would be nice to access statistics data/ download hits etc. for your own plugins hosted on wp.org to retrieve via XML-RPC, feed etc..

    This is something I would definitely like to see, being able to search the extend section right from the admin of my blog.

    Plugin browse/install was implemented in 2.7.
