currently to install a plugin users have to unzip the plugin, then upload the PluginName directory into plugins/PluginName, and then go the admin and enable it. It is quite confusing and could be made much more simpler, by providing:

  • upload the plugin.zip ; piwik would unzip the file, check that it contains one directory with the name of the plugin, check that the PluginName.php file is present, copy the directory in plugins/ and reload the page where the user can enable the plugin.

Hi

with my plugin-installer plugin it is possible to upload and install a zip-filed plugin
install autoUpdater from http://plugin.suenkel.org

after install
Settings -> Pluginstore -> advanced -> Upload Zipfile

Could you please submit a simple and clear patch for the trunk modification (since it goes in core of course :)

Not MVP: we could specify a URL to the .zip of the plugin. For example, tickets in the Piwik trac would give very clearly the URL to the latest version of the plugin in the ticket description. Users would just have to copy paste the URL in the field, click OK, and same process as above would happen.
