I would like to know if there is a new version from the official WP Repos for a specific plugin.

How can I check for this in json/xml format? Or other format maybe?

Something like this: https://api.wordpress.org/core/version-check/1.7/

But for each single plugin in the WP repo

  • @QStudio can't believe this. I though that as soon as they are uploaded into the WP Repo, WP repos update the version, and send the signal for new version availability, which somehow shall be querying some kind of API or simple signal from SVN repo, not sure... – SirLouen Jan 24 at 16:56
  • Also the answers are weird: 100% of the plugins from WP Repos are auto-updated on newly released version, so maybe they are talking about plugins download outside from WP Repos – SirLouen Jan 24 at 16:56

As expected, there is a JSON API.

Just had to dig a lot in the codex!
