Is there any API to get WordPress Plugin Active Installation, Last Update Date and Rating?


(Damith) #1

I am building WordPress plugin directory under categories. Then I want allow users to sort & filter by WordPress plugins by rating, active installation, last update…

I have list of top WordPress plugins which are in WordPress official directory. But manually updating rating, active installation, last update every month will be very time consuming work. So is there any API to get WordPress Plugin Active Installation, Last Update Date and Rating?

You are likely limited to what is available at https://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress.org_API.

You might want to ask in the Make WordPress Slack. I’m not sure what the relevant channel would be but “meta” might be a good place to start. It doesn’t look like they offer this information in the WordPress.org API now, judging from the link above.
