Hi there, I need your advice.

I’m working on a new theme that will be bundled with VisualComposer and LayerSlider plugins. Previously I asked my customers to install the bundled plugins manually, but it’s not the easiest task for many buyers, some of them even bought Visual Composer again on CodeCanyon without knowing that it’s already included in a theme package.

Placing these plugins inside a theme folder and installing from there using TGM class isn’t good idea either. Theme folder size grow up to 20mb and that prevent a theme to be installed automatically from the admin panel.

I heard that TGM class can install plugins from a private BitBucket repo. Is it allowed to create to put LayerSlider and VisualComposer plugins into private repo and use it as a source for TGM class?

Anyone tried this approach? What can you recommend?

Thanks for your help!
