Description (last modified by ocean90)

We have this nice looking easy to use drag-n-drop UI for our media, is there anything stopping us from having it for our plugin and theme uploaders? I know most people use the search that goes through the .org repo, but it's foolish to think that's the only place people ever get their products. This would help facilitate a consistent user experience throughout the entire WP Admin.

Edit:
If possible, support multiple uploads too.

This would require UI change, so I started to try some stuff and got something like the following video;

Any thoughts on this idea?

Honestly, this looks like it got taken care of pretty well with the already done Plugin page revamp from 4.0

At least notably better than what it used to be.

Replying to tw2113:
I saw that, when I was in a Hangout with some friends, someone pointed that it doesn't implement the Drag and Drop nor multiple plugins/themes, correct?

Hadn't tested that part, so valid point there.

Users can drag and drop one plugin/theme currently, but multiple plugins/themes would be much more efficient.

This seems like a good idea. If a patch can be ready in the next few weeks, I would like to include it in 4.3. A v1 that people can start testing is much better than waiting for something to be perfect.

Ok @jorbin,

I will start on this on Monday.
