It’s pretty easy to write puddletag plugins provided you know a bit of Python. If anything’s unclear don’t hesitate mailing me (email@example.com) to complain. Follow the same protocol if you find any errors.
puddletag plugins are stored in ~/.puddletag/plugins. In order for a plugin to be registered the following tree structure is required.:
~/.puddletag/plugins --\modulename ----\__init__.py ----\info
Plugins will be imported using modulename, as such only valid in Python module names (no spaces, periods, unicode, etc.) are allowed.
info is a INI file containing the plugin information. Use the following structure and keep in mind that all keys are case sensitive.
[info] name = Plugin Name author = Author Name version = 1.0 puddletag_version = 0.9.3 description = Description of what the plugin has/does.
name: The name of the plugin as it’ll be displayed to a puddletag user.
author: Add the names of people responsible for this mofo.
version: The version number of your plugin.
puddletag_version: The version of puddletag this plugin was created with. May be used for backward compatibility if the plugin interface changes.
description: Add a short synopsis of what your plugin does.
Your plugin will not be loaded unless all this information is present.
