You MUST have the Python3 loader plugin installed and working as well as the gobject-introspection package for GPlugin installed to use Python3 plugins.
Like all plugins in GPlugin, Python plugins must also implement the
The following is a basic Python plugin.
import gi gi.require_version("GPlugin", "0.0") from gi.repository import GPlugin # gplugin_plugin_query is called when searching for plugins. The only thing this # function should do, is return a GPlugin.PluginInfo instance. def gplugin_plugin_query(): return GPlugin.PluginInfo( id="gplugin-python/basic-plugin", abi_version=0x01020304, name="basic plugin", authors=["author1"], category="test", version="version", license_id="license", summary="summary", website="website", description="description", ) # gplugin_plugin_load is called when your plugin is loaded in the application. # If something isn't quite right, you can return False or throw an exception to # signify that something went wrong and stop your plugin from being loaded. def gplugin_plugin_load(plugin): return True # gplugin_plugin_unload is called when your plugin is unloaded in the # application. The shutdown parameter tells your plugin whether or not the # application is shutting down. For example, if a user unloads your plugin, # shutdown will be False, but if the program is shutting down, shutdown will be # True. # # If something went wrong with the unload or the plugin isn't ready to be # unloaded, you can return False here to stop it from being unloaded. Note if # shutdown is True, the return value is not honored. def gplugin_plugin_unload(plugin, shutdown): return True
