  • As a theme developer, I’ve got many times this problem:

    You see, for some features of your themes you may need few plugins (or dozens), and many times your theme might just not work whithout them.
    So you have to:
    1. Bundle those plugins with your theme – and have users read dozen-lines installation instruction (not retarded-proof!).
    2. Re-build or copy the functionality in your theme – more work…

    WordPress has a great one-click installer for plugins, and theme developers should benefit of this.

    It would be great to have an api, and with a few lines of code, to request and automatically install plugins you need for the theme just after/just before activating it.
