boost on this thread -- i totally agree / would love to hear from the community about this!
I am sorry that you are finding that the plugin ecosystem is hard to navigate, and to tell you the truth, you are completely right.
At the beginning when the system was designed, we focused on two main things:
- Plugins should be easy to write
- Plugins should be installable from the admin panel
Back then, plugins were few in number and very high quality, and so there was not much thought given to what would happen later.
Well, later is now, and it looks like we need to update this I will reflect on your feedback and come up with a GitHub meta issue on how to improve this.
