I just discovered this plugin, which replaces the contents of the Recommended tab of the WordPress plugin installer with a curated list served from a lightweight API:
This is a perfect method for us to highlight plugins which have been developed for Pressbooks or confirmed to work properly with it, and to improve plugin discoverability for users setting up their own Pressbooks networks.
My inclination is to integrate the functionality of this plugin into Pressbooks core (having to install a plugin so that you can find plugins to install seems less than intuitive). Thoughts? @hughmcguire @SteelWagstaff @brad @bryan?
Sidenote: I’ve already set up a server for recommended Pressbooks plugins (so far it includes Pressbooks mPDF, Pressbooks Textbook and Hypothesis). If you want to see it in action you can install the Better Plugin Recommendations plugin, then add the following to
define( 'SPP_BPR_API_HOST', 'pressbooks-plugins.now.sh' );
