StackOverflow Profile

Description

The Stackoverflow Profile Widget is a WordPress widget that displays a
summary of your profile on the Stackoverflow.com website. It shows your
reputation, the number and kind of medals you’ve achieved, and a
selected list of answers you have posted in StackOverflow. For each
answer, it displays the question’s title, the answer’s score, and
the time the answer was last edited.

You can limit the number of answer entries to display. You can sort the
list based on score or date.

The widget uses the StackExchange API, version 2.0, in order to retrieve
information.

It caches the content for a configurable period.

Requirements

  • json_decode / json_encode must be available.
  • PHP5.2 or higher
  • StackOverflow API Key is optional (http://stackapps.com/questions/2/api-hello-world-code)

Acknowledgements

This plugin was initially based on and inspired by the Stackoverflow
Answers Widget from Mohammed Alsharaf. That code is licensed under the
New BSD license.

Under the terms of that license, I am acknowledging the origins of this
code. See the License-Alsharaf.txt file for full details.

This plugin differs from that one in that:

  • it uses the official Stackexchange API
  • it caches results properly
  • it displays medal counts
  • it uses a nicer skin
  • can display upvoted answers, or any answers.
