Is it possible to add a plugin to desktop editor on Mac?

Post by sgaluza » Sun Nov 27, 2016 5:16 pm

When I try to add a *.plugin file to a desktop editor on Mac it just doesn't allow to do that (the drag&drop action is not performed). Is it a bug?

Hello!
1 You must have up-to-date desktop Editor
2 Download folder with plugins
3 Enter the folder sdkjs-plugins
4 Choose plugin you need, chess for example
5 Enter the folder Chess and type in terminal zip -r chess.plugin
6 Drop chess.plugin into application

Maxims description works for me.
But notice that when you drop the .plugin file onto the app main window, the App doesn't seem to accept the file - there is no visual feedback when you drop the plugin in place, and worse, it seems to snap back to the finder window where you dragged it from.
However, when you then open a document editor, you'll find a new 'plugin' icon in the left most sidebar.
