I like the idea of the plugin button so users can see all the plugins.

Subject: '[PROPOSAL]' Third party plugins

Hello All,

I would like to discuss a new feature that is being worked on for the next release of CloudStack.
It is the ability to add third party plugins into CloudStack while still utilizing the current
ui. The procedure in which this would occur is as follows:

1.       The developer  will write a plugin that they would like to add into CloudStack

2.        Using a predetermined file hierarchy we create, the developer will place their plugin
within the folder structure and fill out a plugin.js file

3.       The admin will then place this folder into the existing CloudStack "plugin"

4.       The admin will then add this new listing onto the plugin.js file that lies within
that folder

5.       The user then just has to refresh the browser and the plugin will be available to

We will be toying with the idea of adding a plugin button to the navigation so that the user
can see what plugins have been installed and click on them to access them.

Please see the link below for more information.

Thoughts, comments, suggestions?

Thanks You and Best Regards,
