Latest Github Commits


Latest Github Commits is a simple WordPress widget to fetch your latest commits from Github using their API.

You need to configure: * Github owner of the project (i.e bivald in my case) * Project URI (i.e wordpress-latest-github-commits in my case)

You can also set * Widget title * Max commits to list * How long to cache the results


This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.


  1. Upload latest-github-commits.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Add the plugin to your sidebar as a widget


How does it cache the results?

It uses WordPress transient storage to cache the results.

Is it stable?

So far, it appears to be. I use it on, of course the GitHub API can change without notice.
Consider it a beta.
