Plugin repo bookmarklet

Sometimes when I’m checking out plugins in the WordPress.org repository, I like to view the source before I download. So partly out of boredom and partly out of laziness, I decided to create a bookmarklet that jumps you from a WordPress.org-hosted plugin page to its subversion repository.

The bookmarklet: Plugin Repo

To use the bookmarklet:

  1. Drag the above ‘Plugin Repo’ link to your bookmarks bar
  2. Visit any plugin page (or plugin’s sub-page) in the WordPress.org plugin repository
  3. Click the bookmarklet and you will be sent to that plugin’s SVN repo trunk url
  4. Boom.
