+Plugin Update Checker
+This is a custom update checker library for WordPress plugins. It lets you add automatic update notifications and one-click upgrades to your commercial and private plugins. All you need to do is put your plugin details in a JSON file, place the file on your server, and pass the URL to the library. The library periodically checks the URL to see if there's a new version available and displays an update notification to the user if necessary.
+From the users' perspective, it works just like with plugins hosted on The update checker uses the default plugin upgrade UI that will already be familiar to most WordPress users.
+[See this blog post]( for more information and usage instructions.
