flipper-plugin is the dependency used by all modern Flipper plugins (project "Tommy").
For background: https://fb.quip.com/YHOGAnaPqAVJ
flipper-plugin is to be used as
peer dependency of all Flipper plugins. It provides:
- (TODO) Standard API's to interact with Flipper, such as the client connection.
- (TODO) Standard components to organize the UI
- (TODO) Testing utilities
API's provided by
flipper-plugin are documented at fbflipper.com (TODO).
There should normally be no need to install
flipper-plugin as dependency.
Rather, plugins should be scaffolded using
npx flipper-pkg init (TODO) as documented here
