Hello guys,

it would be absolutly perfect, to have something like the wordpress or TYPO3 extension repository for piwik extensions.

I think the following features are needed:

  • login with trac account
  • registration of ext keys -> will be the same as the directory
  • reserved extnames for system extensions
  • remote installation
  • update notification in extension list

So we will need a server and a client part.

Todo for server part

  • extension repository browser
  • webservice versioncheck and download api (one way would be to downlaod the complete list of plugins and then check against the local list to respect privacy of the piwik users - other way like wordpress aks the webserver api for every plugin)
  • extensionkey registration and management

Todo for the client part

  • communication with the repository to check the version of installed extensions
  • upload of localy developed plugins to the repository with trac user credentials

I think most of the functionality could be integrated into CorePluginsAdmin and there is already done a lot. ;)

I hope this idea helps to improve piwik. If you need a very usable repository please have a look of the one implemented for TYPO3, perhaps the TYPO3 project gives you the chance to use parts of the TER code.

Best regards

Rescheduling for post-1.0 ... unless someone wants to pick up the ball and run with this...
