I'm trying to add dired+ to my init.el with use-package but I can't seem to find the name of dired+ on any of the package repositories ( marmalade, melpa or elpa ).

I'd been able to add dired+ after manually downloading it and activating it with require and defining the location with load-path.

Current code on init.el for loading dired+ after manually download:

;; ---- Dired + --------
;; Loads Dired+ Manually
(add-to-list 'load-path "~/.emacs.d/elpa/dired+/")
(require 'dired+)

dired+ has left MELPA repository, and now you have to download it manually from EmacsWiki. You can still use use-package with a downloaded package, like this:

(use-package dired+
  :load-path "~/.emacs.d/packages/dired+")

Another option is to use a dired+ repository mirror in github, along with a tool like quelpa, which allows you to fetch packages directly from a repository:

(use-package dired+
  :quelpa (dired+ :fetcher github :repo "emacsmirror/dired-plus"))
