Re: Plugin: Plugin browser for bbPress
>For a lark I pointed the plugin to the WordPress Plugin SVN. It got about 1/4 of the way through retrieving the list of plugins and died (script timeout).
With many people accessing it, yeah it will necessary to pre-compile a default list of a full revision weekly.
Or to be sneaky for now you can set a flag in options after each curl fetch and restart bbpress if you calculate approaching 30 seconds.
Both ways sound like headaches.
I wonder if the trac cache is faster/more efficent?
I wonder if trac can be tricked to pre-gzip it all to download beforehand as a bundled revision? It’s got to compress wonderfully as it’s entirely plain text and repeating php functions.
ps. be sure to take advantage of gzip support in curl / fsockopen – I have some code I wrote somewhere to do this if you need ideas
