Deployment Platform/Shell Plugins
Plugins are pluggable Sugar Shell code. By design, plugins are not isolated from the rest of shell code and each other, thus, they are assumed to be setup by Sugar distributors or experienced users.
Plugins are Python modules placed in one of the following (sorted by search order) directories. Only the first directory will be used in order to prevent unwanted code collisions between different installation level plugins.
~/.sugar/PROFILE/plugins/PLUGIN_NAME, user-wide plugins.
SHELL_INSTALL_PATH/jarabe/plugins/PLUGIN_NAME, system-wide plugins;
To be detected as a plugin source, a directory should conform to the following policies:
- The directory should be a regular Python module;
__init__.pyfile from plugin directory should contain these required declarations.
Use sugar-example-plugin sources as a template for new plugins.
After installing, plugins should be enabled from the Plugins Control Panel in the Sugar Shell, or, if this section is disabled, add the plugin name to the
plugins setting in the [shell] configuration section. If the plugin has a configuration UI, it will appear in the same Plugins section.
