This page will list known YOURLS plugins (till there are too many and this become impractical).

If you have an idea or a need for a plugin that does not exist yet, read wiki page Possible With A Plugin

Core plugins

Core plugins are bundled with YOURLS. They aim to either provide sample code for people who want to make their own plugins (it's easy!), or implement often requested features.

Normal plugins

These plugins are written (and hopefully maintained) by various YOURLS users (a few by Ozh )

Note that being listed here does not guarantee that the plugin is approved, its code is clean, future proof or anything (unless it's been made by Ozh of course ;)

Get your plugin listed here

You made a plugin? Awesome news! Getting your plugin listed here is easy:

  1. First, get your plugin hosted somewhere. Your blog is fine. A source controlled environment such as Google Code or Github is excellent. Tip: clone this repository to create your plugin repository in seconds.
  2. Your plugin should be announced/hosted where users can post comments, submit bug reports and give feedback.
  3. Last part: once step 1 and 2 are completed, ask Ozh to get listed here. The safest way is to send an email to ozh at ozh dot org
