Digi Installer

How to use

This plugin allows you to install Joomla extensions by AJAX, on the same website where this plugin is installed.

You must call this plugin by this URL: index.php?option=com_ajax&plugin=digiinstaller&format=json, sending needed data by POST method.

In the AJAX call, these two variables should be passed:

  • Extension Name variable should contain the system name of the extension to install (for example "mod_digi_showcase").
  • Extension URL variable should contain the URL where to download the extension to install.

Below an example code to make the AJAX call using jQuery.

  • MY_BUTTON should be replaced with the identifier of the element to trigger the function.
  • EXTENSION_NAME should be replaced with the system name of the extension.
  • EXTENSION_URL should be replaced with the URL where to download the extension to install.
jQuery(document).ready(function() {

 jQuery("MY_BUTTON").click(function(e) {
  e.preventDefault();

  var extensionName = "EXTENSION_NAME";
  var extensionUrl = "EXTENSION_URL";
  var scriptUrl = "index.php?option=com_ajax&plugin=digiinstaller&format=json";
  var message = "";
   jQuery.ajax({
    type: "POST",
    url: scriptUrl,
    data: { name: extensionName, url: extensionUrl },
    success: function(data) { message = data["data"]; }
   });
 });
});
