SSPM simple plugin manger based on YAPSY

Project description

Super Simple Plugin Manager - SSPM

About SSPM

Super Simple Plugin Manager - SSPM is a library I created based off of Thibauld Nion's YAPSY. I liked how configurable YAPSY is and the inclusion of a configuration file to allow the plugin creator to include details about their plugin. Unfortunately, I found that YAPSY had a lot of functionality that I didn't need, it is out of date, and contains a lot of deprecated code. To address these issues I created SSPM. SSPM does not have the customization that yapsy has. However, it allows for much quicker implementation that I believe most people will find useful. It is meant to be a very simple hands-off plugin manager.


The easiest way to install is to use pip:

pip install SSPM

or if you have cloned the repo:

cd <path to repo>
pip install .


cd <path to repo>
python install

Basic Usage

  1. Initialize the plugin manager

    plugin_manager = PluginManager(plugin_folder=\<INSERT PLUGINS DIR PATH HERE\>)
  2. Import the plugins in the plugins directory

  3. Get the imported plugin

    plugin = sspm.get_active_plugin("Plugin name")


    plugins = sspm.active_plugins
