If you manage any number of Plugins, the process of maintaining both a Plugin README file (for the Plugin Directory) as well as for your own blog might get tiresome. It’s not complicated work, but it’s the kind of extra work that might keep you from actually publishing that blog post about your newly released Plugin.
David Artiss has created a Plugin for just that problem. Enter WP README Parser, a Plugin that will take your Plugin’s README file, convert it into XHTML format, and place it right into your blog post or page. Instead of duplicating your efforts by re-writing the same content, WP README Parser uses a WordPress shortcode to grab the README file and display it for you.
Create a lot of Plugins? There’s a Plugin for that.
