One of my favorite things about working with WordPress is the community around the platform and how easy it is to extend the core application through themes and plugins. One of the challenges of new WordPress developers is getting started with publishing their plugins.

As such, I contributed an article that can be found on Envato on how to publish to the WordPress plugin repository.

In the article, I cover the following topics:

  • Requesting access to the plugin repository
  • Setting up the repository on your local machine using Subversion
  • How to commit code
  • An introduction to tagging and releasing
If you’re looking to get started in writing and contributing your own plugins, be sure to review the article.
