Re: Ability to install plugins from Github

Yes, getting back to #1. Sorry. ;)

#3 is over, as far as I'm concerned.

The text persuades, the *notes prove。

Nothing need to be sorry. Good discussions. Just was thinking about how to best track the discussions. :)

Re: Ability to install plugins from Github

Hey maverick and others, I built a little plugin which gets plugin information from MST-Textpattern and creates a simple table of them, which then is available from Textpattern’s Extensions tab. Like this.

If you want to get the plugin, it’s here. (Version 0.2 has a new function which makes it easier to install plugins from Github.)

Re: Ability to install plugins from Github

Hi Petri!

This is a handy plugin! It makes browsing the repositories quick and easy. I have it installed, and will give it a full try out as soon as I have time. Thank you!

Re: Ability to install plugins from Github

An fyi update in case it is of help to anyone:

There are currently 225 245 Textpattern plugin repositories under MST-Texptpattern

  • Several repositories contain more than one plugin.
  • Several repositories are variations of the same plug uploaded and modified by different people
  • Some plugins duplicate the functionality of each other
  • Some plugins are obsolete and/or have been superseded by another plugin or by core functionality
  • All told, there is a net availability of more than 225 245 individual plugins

Thanks to Petri’s (kuopassa) plugin, the number of “stars” for a given repo on Github is shown, as well as the name, description, and whether the plugin is installed. The option to install is given, and pulls up the compressed txt file.

MST-Textpattern

Bici – this is my collection of all things Textpattern, so there are additional repos for Textpattern Templates, Themes, etc. The bulk are Txp Plugins, though.

kuopossa’s Github View for Textpattern Plugins and Themes is a rather handy way to view them.

Re: Ability to install plugins from Github

thnanks. but i think we are creating confusion,,,if we go here:
https://github.com/MST-Textpattern
we see only your collection.

from this link https://github.com/textpattern-community
we get the impression that the link at the bottom links to ALL plugins, that are available for Textpattern.

is there a top-level well curated list of plugins à la Devot-ee.com ?

Re: Ability to install plugins from Github

Bici – yes, there is room for confusion.

As you noted, the link I shared is to my personal collection, not a community collection.

I shared my collection only to be helpful. I originally never intended it for public promotion, but only for personal use. I decide to mention it here only in case it would be helpful to someone. As far as I know it is the most complete grouping of Textpattern plugins available. It seemed selfish to keep it a secret.

However, I think an official Textpattern Community collection is preferable. The format Pete has set up in the link that you referenced is a more involved project. There is a schema for the sake of consistency, and as far as I can tell, each plugin has to be uploaded independently from existing repos. Which is a fine approach, just a bit more effort is required.

One other difference is that the Archive is the repo, and each plugin is a sub-repository. This has some pluses, like organizing the plugins by plugin author, and maybe some drawbacks – as a Github newbie I find it a bit easier to work with plugins when they are a stand alone repo. Plus, I’m not sure how to integrate existing plugin repos into the Community archive.

Thus, my approach was much lazier. I simply created an organization and started forking repos, and (visible only from my side of thing) organizing the repos using teams as faux categories.

If my collection helps, excellent. If it confuses, please accept my apologies.
