Add-On Type(s)



This plugin was designed for developers using GitHub to create downloads from their sites.

What it does is allow you to put a download link directly on your site and not have to send people to the GitHub project to download. Basically to prevent confusion on how to download the code. “That ”Download Source” button can be really hard to find.”

The plugin uses the GitHub api and generates the download based off “tags”. So you will need to be using tags for it to work. Another plus is you can use “latest” for the tag and it will automatically update to your latest tag instead of having to manually edit it each time you make a new release.

&123;exp:github_download user="githubusername" repo="reponame" tag="latest"&125;


  • user - Required - Github username
  • repo - Required - Github repo name
  • tag - Required - Lastest or a specific tag.
  • class - Css class to apply to link
  • type - Either zipball (default) or tarball
