The Plugin Oriented Programming System
Pop is used to express the Plugin Oriented Programming Paradigm. The Plugin Oriented Programming Paradigm has been designed to make pluggable software easy to write and easy to extend.
Plugin Oriented Programming presents a new way to scale development teams and deliver complex software. This is done by making the applications entirely out of plugins, and also making the applications themselves natively pluggable with each other.
Using Plugin Oriented Programming it then becomes easy to have the best of both worlds, software can be build in small pieces, making development easier to maintain. But the small pieces can then be merged and deployed in a single binary, making code deployment easy as well.
All this using Python, one of the world’s most popular and powerful programming language.
A more complete Getting Started Guide is available inside of the documentation for pop. The best place to start is in the doc’s Getting Started Guide found here:
First off, install pop from pypi:
pip3 install pop
Now that you have pop, use the tool that pop ships with to bootstrap your project! This tool is called pop-seed and it will make your Python project boiler plate for you!
mkdir poppy cd poppy pop-seed poppy
Now you have a setup.py file will detect changes to you project and “Just Work”. Feel free to open it up and fill in some of the blank places, like author name, description, etc. The pop-seed program also made your first directories, your run.py startup script, everything you need to install your project and the pop conf.py file used to load in configuration. Running pop-seed also made a few other files, but nothing to worry about now.
Congratulations! You have a pop project! Now you can run the project:
With a project up and running you can now add more plugins, more code and more plugin subsystems!
Take a look at the poppy/poppy/init.py file, your little run.py script created the hub, loaded your first plugin subsystem, poppy and called the run function therein. This is the starting point for your app.
Next dive into the pop documentation, we will take you through how to think in Plugin Oriented Programming, helping you see a new way to write code that is more flexible and dynamic than anything you have seen before!
In the first few sentences of this document I promised you a single binary! This is easy to do! Just pip install tiamat:
pip install tiamat tiamat -n poppy
This will build a single binary of your program! If something goes wrong it is most likely because PyInstaller does not support the latest version of Python yet. To fix this you can usually just run tiamat with the –dev-pyinst to build the binary with the latest development snapshot of PyInstaller.

There is a much more in depth tutorial here, followed by documents on how to think in Plugin Oriented Programming. Take your time to read it, it is not long and can change how you look at writing software!
