Starting from the 0.7.5 version, poezio supports plugins. Here is a quick howto and a plugin index.
Setting up plugins¶
Poezio seeks the plugins in the
~/.local/share/poezio/plugins/ dir (more
$XDG_DATA_HOME/poezio/plugins/ dir), but that can be changed
by setting the plugins_dir option to the directory where you want to
put your plugins.
By default, poezio will also seek the plugins in
../plugins, in the source
directory, in order to always load the latest versions. You should put a plugin
$XDG_DATA_HOME/poezio/plugins only if you have a custom version (that
will override the one in
../plugins), or if it is a plugin you made.
Use the plugins_autoload optionto select which plugins should be loaded on startup. The value is a list of plugin names separated by colons, e.g.
plugins_autoload = gpg:tell:exec
Most plugins will manage their configuration internally, and you do not (and should not) have to edit it, but some (e.g. mpd_client or gpg) require manual editing (the /set command can be used, but it is not pleasant to set multiple values with it).
The plugin configuration directory is located in
$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/poezio/plugins/) and the file related to a specific
plugin is named
plugin_name.cfg. The configuration options should usually be
inside a section named after the plugin (sections are delimited with
[plugin_name] key = value other_key = other_value
