GitHub Updater

Build Status

A simple plugin to enable automatic updates to your GitHub, Bitbucket, or GitLab hosted WordPress plugins, themes, and language packs. It also allows for the remote installation of plugins or themes.

Comprehensive information regarding GitHub Updater is available on the wiki.

Description

This plugin was designed to simply update any GitHub hosted WordPress plugin or theme. Your plugin or theme must contain a header in the style.css header or in the plugin's header denoting the location on GitHub. The format is as follows.

GitHub Plugin URI: afragen/github-updater
GitHub Plugin URI: https://github.com/afragen/github-updater

or

GitHub Theme URI: afragen/test-child
GitHub Theme URI: https://github.com/afragen/test-child

...where the above URI leads to the owner/repository of your theme or plugin. The URI may be in the format https://github.com/<owner>/<repo> or the short format <owner>/<repo>. You do not need both. Only one Plugin or Theme URI is required. You should not include any extensions like .git.
