WordPress Developer Toolkit

A plugin for WordPress developers.

WordPress Developer Toolkit is a handy tool for WordPress Developers. This plugin gives you 6 new shortcodes for displaying your WordPress plugins that are stored in the repository. Once you add your plugins, you will have 6 shortcodes:

  • Display Plugin Description
  • Display Plugin Download Count
  • Display Plugin Version
  • Display Plugin Average Rating
  • Display Date Of Last Update
  • Display Link To Plugin File

All of this is synced to your plugin on the repository on a regular basic. So when you update your plugin, your shortcodes will automatically update.

You also get a statistics page in the admin panel. The statistics page shows:

  • Number Of Plugins You Have Entered
  • Total Downloads Of All Plugins
  • Overall Average Rating Of All Plugins
  • Overall Average Downloads Per Plugin

How Do I Find My Plugin's Slug?

There are a few ways. First, if you visit your plugin on, the end of the url is usually your slug. For example, the end of this plugin's page is wordpress-developer-toolkit. Also, your folder in the SVN repository is also your plugin's slug. Lastly, the folder that is created when installing your plugin is also the plugin's slug.

I have an idea, how do I contact you?
