azurecurve ClassicPress Plugin: Get GitHub File

ClassicPress PluginsThis is part of the which introduces the plugins I have available for ClassicPress.

The plugin I am going to cover in this post, is a brand new one written for ClassicPress; Get Github File.


Gets the content of a file from a GitHub repository and outputs using a shortcode.

Settings allow default options, such as author, folder, filename to be specified. Additional options to allow the removal or conversion of WordPress headers in readme.txt files.

Available shortcode parameters:

  • account – account on GitHub
  • branch – branch to get file from
  • folder – folder containing the file
  • file – file to get from GitHub repository
  • repository – name of GitHub repository
  • startfrom – text in file to start outputting from (e.g. # Description)
  • htmlastext – 1 to output HTMl as text and 0 to output as HTML
  • shortcodesastext – 1 to output shortcodes as text and 0 to output as shortcode
  • wordpresstitles – remove/ignore/convert

All parameters except repository can be defined as defaults in settings.

Output is in markdown, but use of a plugin such as Markdown by azurecurve can convert this markdown to HTML markup.


The plugin can be downloaded via my Development site.
