Easy Plugin Stats

Description

Easily display stats associated with plugins hosted on WordPress.org, such as the number of downloads, active installations, star rating, and more.

This plugin was designed for developers with plugins in the WordPress.org repository (and anyone else) who want to display their plugin information on an external site. It uses the WordPress Plugins API to fetch the raw data, which can then be inserted into a page or post using a custom block, a Button block variation, or a shortcode. You can display stats from a single plugin, or aggregate stats from multiple plugins.

FAQ

How do I use the Plugin Stat block?

How do I use the Plugin Button variation for the Button block?

Insert a WordPress Buttons block, then click on the + inserter or open the block inserter. Besides the default Button block, you’ll see the Plugin Button variation.

Works really well, would be awesome to see support for Google Schema and the ability to drop individual reviews into pages which would help massively with onsite SEO, have it on 3 plugins https://optimisation.io/wordpress-plugins/ here
