Since I set up a lot of wordpress-based sites for clients, and my internet-connection can sometimes be annoyingly slow, I have made a small single-file “installer” that downloads and unzips the current version of WP directly to the server, and those plugins I “always” use.
However (both because I’d like to make this script publicly available, and because I’m curious and trying to learn a bit more php) – is there a way to get the urls to the current versions of these plugins? Currently I’ve just done it really simple, hardcoding the urls to the different plugins’ zips into the script, and updating the plugisn from inside wp-admin after the install is done.
So – is there some smarter (but still simple – remember – my php-skills are not the best :)) way I can get the urls to the zipfiles of the current versions of plugins, from “outside” wordpress?
