electron-plugins

Plugin loader for electron applications.

Installation

npm install electron-plugins --save

Usage

In your electron render process you can load your plugins like so:

var plugins = require('electron-plugins');

document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', function () {
  var context = { document: document };
  plugins.load(context, function (err, loaded) {
    if(err) return console.error(err);
    console.log('Plugins loaded successfully.');
  });
});

Your plugin should export a constructor function, which is passed the context object upon instantiation. You can put whatever you want onto the context object.

function Plugin(context) {
    var d = context.document
    var ul = d.getElementById('plugins')
    var li = d.createElement('li')
    li.innerHTML = 'electron-updater-sample-plugin'
    ul.appendChild(li)
}

module.exports = Plugin
