GitHub Repositories (for WordPress)

GitHub Repositories (for Wordpress)


Just a silly project to see if I can create WordPress plug-ins. It displays a list of GitHub repositories or the of a single repository. Note that I have no idea about PHP and what I'm doing, so this project should not be used as reference on how to do anything.

Getting Started


You need at least WordPress 5.1, or at least that is the version I tested against.


Installing "GitHub Repositories" can be done either by searching for "GitHub Repositories" via the "Plugins > Add New" screen in your WordPress dashboard, or by using the following steps:

  1. Download the plugin via WordPress
  2. Upload the ZIP file through the 'Plugins > Add New > Upload' screen in your WordPress dashboard
  3. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress

Using the Plug-in

You define the plug-in with the shortcode list-github-repositories. Don't forget to define the user whose plug-ins you want to display, else you'll get mine.

List GitHub Repositories in Editor

Afterwards you get a nice list with your repositories.

List GitHub Repositories in Action

Similarly you can use a shortcode like [show-github-repository user="slothsoft" repository="wordpress-github-repositories"] to show a single repository's HTML. GitHub parses the HTML itself, so you don't need to fear unsupported markup.
