Description

Hi all,

I have a suggestion for the Redmine's project, and I'm very surprised that nobody has already complained about it :) (as far as I know)

I think that the plugin's directory can be really improved. On the main screen, we saw a picture (why ???) of the plugin and a small text. Obviously, the texts are very subjectives and the pictures totally useless. There is some very important informations that cannot be seen directly like the supported versions of redmine, the development stade (alpha, beta, rc, final..) or the last update (important to see if the plugin is still alive)...

To give the users the ability to vote for a plugin would be really nice too. It could allow us to find a good one more easily. Maybe also allow the users to class their plugins into some predefined categories... I think you can only do better than an alphabetical ordered list.

You can pick some ideas from the plugin's repos of firefox for example. They categorized the list and when you select a category, there is three instant-access column : recently added, popular and top rated. This is very convenient to find a good plugin !

In my opinion the plugins are the heart of Redmine given that they add the little (sometimes essentials) missing features.

Thank you for reading and I hope I've been listen :)

Cheers,

Cyril

This request is very interesting!
It will be nice if one can order the plugin list by date or many other parameters.
