    13 Displays your favorite plugins (in a widget) from your WordPress.org profile along with star ratings and author info. 
     14A lot of people write plugins and even more people have a hard time finding good plugins.  If you write plugins I'm sure you are always being asked for recommendations. 
     15This simple plugin allows you to show off the plugins you have favorited on your WordPress.org plugin author profile in a sidebar widget. 
     16 
     17Your users and site visitors will know what plugins you like.  You can also display the plugins star rating along with the author with link to the author uri. 
     18 
     19The styling is minimal and easily adapts to your theme design with few hooks added for extension if needed.

     21**How does it work?** 
     22 
     23Just in time for WordPress 3.5 a new addition was made to the WordPress.org plugins api.  The api allows you to fetch your favorites as an object.  The plugin stores the resulting object as a transient so your not hammering the api on every page load. 
     24Any of the object vars can be added to the output of the widget using the `c3m_favorite_results` filter. 
     25 
     26This is the same api used in the new favorites tab in the dashboard for 3.5.
