Converse.js plugin generator

This is a Yeoman generator for creating Converse.js plugins.

Creating a plugin

Firstly, make sure you have Yeoman installed:

npm install -g yo generator-conversejs

Then, to create a new plugin, run the following:

$ yo conversejs converse-pluginname

Where pluginname should be the name of your plugin.

Demo your plugin

Once you've generated your plugin, you can navigate into its folder, and then run npm install && npm start to install its dependencies and to start a webserver.

Then you can open http://localhost:8080 in your browser to demo your newly generated plugin.

Further reading

Converse.js uses pluggable.js to provide its plugin architecture.

For more info on how plugins work and how to write them, you can read Converse.js's documentation on how to write a plugin as well as the pluggable.js documentation.
