I have installed LocalWP with big hopes. Unfortunately I am very disapointed that the tool
do not have basic functionality to install .zip plugins.
After downloadding WooCommerce.zip
I open LocalWP with only allowing tar.gz. So I unzip .zip and create .tar and tar.gz
So I am choosing Add-Ons, Load from Disk, then choose WooCommerce.tar.gz
Wheel is spinning “installing…” text display.
Then it comes back with an error:
Error installing add-on - “Unable to find package.json in add-on”
This is the latest woocommerce.zip package from wordpress marketplace.
The same error occur here for this potential user but no answer was given since April…:
Is this project “dead”, If this is the best wordpress development tool stack…
I have no hopes if you cannot even have functionality to install an add-in.
All the best fixing this.
To have capability to add wordpress add-ons should be the number one
on your backlog because without this this tool is not extendable to plug and play
