You can use this URL to run GET request:


You will get JSON object that includes plugins, the total number of plugins, page, the total number of pages. It will sort plugins from newest to oldest.

  • Thank you so much, it is really helpful, but one problem is that it returns the same result of Page=1 with the following different parameters as well. e.g api.wordpress.org/plugins/info/1.1/… api.wordpress.org/plugins/info/1.1/… api.wordpress.org/plugins/info/1.1/… In short page and per_page params doesn't effect the results. Am I doing something wrong and how can I get the results from page = 2,3... and so on? Commented Sep 16, 2017 at 5:12
  • I have updated my response, it looks like the format has changed a bit. Try it now. Commented Sep 16, 2017 at 8:04
  • Thank you so much, I can easily go through each page now. One last request, can you please share a link for documentations where different options/params information for this APIs are mentioned. I have found this one but it is vague codex.wordpress.org/WordPress.org_API Commented Sep 16, 2017 at 12:44
  • It is similar to theme params on that API page, there is no other documentation. Commented Sep 16, 2017 at 12:49
