Inspired from the Development Toogle of Lukas Winkler, this plugin adds a new icon to the main navigation bar for super admins that quickly enable the possibility to upload plugins from the Matomo backend.
Typically this plugin acts on the config.ini.php file by setting the following variable enable_plugin_upload to 1. By default it is set on 0.
Which problem does this plugin solve?
By default, within Matomo on-premise, you cannot upload plugins through the backend of Matomo. In order to overcome this, you need to edit the config.ini.php file. The issue is that some people do not have access to the server, as a result, they cannot upload a plugin which is not listed on the marketplace. The Upload Toogle plugin allows you to simply edit the config.ini.php file without accessing to the server.
