Features:

  • Download, install and activate plugins in a single click
  • Choose plugins from a curated list
  • Manually search for several plugins at once
  • Export all of your plugins into a list that you can then use to re-install them in another installation or deployment
  • Easy, simple to understand code, that can be easily modified to suit your needs
  • Use of WordPress API to provide seamless integration

You can check out the source code, submit patches or improvements, and report bugs at the project’s GitHub page.
