Plugins in Shipa are executables that can have and perform different functions within the applications. Since it runs in your local CLI, plugins are modular, can be distributed and built by users themselves.
You can use Shell Script, Python, Ruby, or other programming languages for creating your plugins.
As an example, to create a Hello World plugin that just prints “Hello World” on the screen, we can use Shell Script when creating the plugin:
#!/bin/bash -e echo "Hello World"
To use gist (https://gist.github.com) as the plugin host, run the plugin install command to install it.
shipa plugin install hello <URL>
Installing from a URL
shipa plugin install command only supports installing plugin accessible over HTTP(s) URL.
Copy the plugin to $HOME/.shipa/plugins.
cp hello $HOME/.shipa/plugins
The plugin install command downloads the plugin file to $HOME/.shipa/plugins. The syntax for this command is:
shipa plugin install <plugin-name> <plugin-url>
To list all installed plugins, use the plugin list command:
shipa plugin list
To execute a plugin, use the following pattern:
shipa <plugin-name> <arg>
To remove a plugin, use the plugin remove command. This passes the name of the plugin as an argument.
shipa plugin remove <plugin-name>
