Plugins

Plugin repo

To update the available plugins go to <webpage>/plugins/repo. NimWC will clone this repo to ensure, that the latest available plugins are shown.

Enable/disable a plugin

To enable or disable a plugin go to <webpage>/plugins. Only plugins installed at <webpage>/plugins/repo will be available.

Plugins are loaded at compile time with macros, therefore it can take up to ~60 seconds to enable or disable a plugin. The interface will notify you, when the plugin is installed.

Contribute

To make a plugin public accessible, you need to add it to the plugins.json in this plugin repo.
