I see the plugin system has changed a bit, with plugins in subdirectories, a factory file, a documentation page.

I think I can work out what it's doing, but when I run the latest version of SFW, I can't see any factory options for any of the default plugin types appearing when I hit + to create a new paragraph.

Is this a bug? Or do you now choose plugin types in a different way?

This behavior is driven by factory.json files in select plugins. The express server doesn't yet support interpreting these files.

Ah. OK. Thanks. It's because I'm on express.

Is anyone working on the express version at the moment?

Express should be handling the plugins correctly. Thanks @nrn of commit 5ccb2cc.
