Description

Acceptance criteria

  • AC1: Plugins can be installed in the user's home
  • AC2: Documentation explains how to install plugins out of tree

Suggestions

  • Plugins live in lib/OpenQA/WebAPI/Plugin and lib/OpenQA/CLI as part of openQA upstream
  • ~/.config/openqa/plugins
  • Module::Pluggable shows off a search_dirs option to support multiple folders

History

#1 Updated by mkittler 3 months ago

Can't one just add a plugin module under, e.g. ~/openqa/plugins/OpenQA/CLI/MyPlugin.pm and add ~/openqa/plugins to PERL5LIB? I haven't tested it but it likely works and wouldn't even require a code change.

#2 Updated by okurz 3 months ago

  • Target version changed from Ready to future

I am sorry, putting that in the backlog was premature, my mistake
