I am working with python plugins for QGIS.I developed my plugin and created .zip file including my .ui,.py and resources files.In order to incooperate this plugin into QGIS i created .xml file plugins.xml as shown below:

<?xml version = '1.0' encoding = 'UTF-8'?>

Example #1 testing 0.1 1.0


I uploaded my .zip file and .xml file on In qgis i went to 'fetch python plugins'-->repositories.Added repository as name:About and url: when i go to plugins nothing is displayed in it.

what can be the problem??

No experience with python plugins but is the url http: // ftp: //... supposed to look like that? – Vladtn Feb 4 '12 at 10:54
If your plugin is meant to other QGIS users to use I would encourage you to upload it to then it will go into the main QGIS plugin repo and a lot more people will get it. – Nathan W Feb 4 '12 at 13:03
I agree with Nathan. – Giovanni Manghi Feb 4 '12 at 16:49

You can check this manual how to set a repository, it is an automatic translation, but it should be understandable.

It seems that neither or exist. Are you sure you're writing the correct URL? Or that your server is set up correctly?

Also why are you downloading via FTP?
