Plugin API/SDK

Postby mememe on Fri Feb 17, 2012 7:32 pm

I'm having trouble locating a plugin API or SDK for freelobby. Can someone point me in the right direction?



Yes, I realize this forum is all but dead, but I ask you oh mighty Odin to show mercy...

What language are you looking to program in. I can put some stuff up on google.

I currently have some workarounds and media import hacks that I wrote in Python and run manually, but I would like to convert my media and art importer into a full blown plugin. I'm guessing I will have to convert it to a .net language for the plugin though. Is there a language that seems to be popular with the developers still hanging around here?


Thanks for the link. I'll check it out.

Most of the stuff is in c#. If you have someone in college, high school or elementry school in your family you could download Microsoft visual studio 2010 from dreamspark.com.

As luck (or unluck) would have it, I am currently unemployed (hence freelobby) and decided to go back to school for another degree. It gives me a lot of free time to work on stuff like this, and I get all kinds of free stuff from Microsoft. :D

I guess I'll be learning C# next. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

You are welcome. If you need any other code samples to look at let me know.

I'll take a look. So far, it's just learning the differences in syntax that are tripping me up. C# just doesn't seem nearly as intuitive as something like Python.

Are you using visual studio? It will automatically provide function support. When I learned the language I looked at a number of plugins and started mine with the framework of an existing one.
