Easily integrate plugin information from WordPress.org with plugin cards

With the Plugin Cards plugin, the information can be displayed in WordPress Card Style for every plugin hosted on WordPress.org. I find the plugin extremely practical and therefore use it for all plugin reviews on this blog.

As in the official plugin directory, the plugin shows the name, author and download link of the plugin. In addition, of course, the meta information such as user ratings, active installations and the last update of the plugin.

The plugin can be integrated on all pages and contributions with the shortcode [plugin_cards] . The shortcode allows different attributes to display plugins with a certain slug, author, keyword or list.

 [plugin_cards slug = "easy-digital-downloads"]
[plugin_cards author = "markjaquith"]
[plugin_cards user = "matt"] // Displays user's favorites list
[plugin_cards tag = "slider"]
[plugin_cards browse = "popular"]
[plugin_cards browse = "new"]
[plugin_cards browse = "beta"]
[plugin_cards search = "gallery"]

The plugin accesses the relevant data via the WordPress.org plugin API. The plugin information from WordPress.org is cached in order to minimize frequent requests and not to impair the performance of the site.

Download the plugin

The plugin is available for download on WordPress.org and is documented there in detail. The development takes place on Github .
