    If you are creating a plugin, and need to use variables because some values will need
to be defined by the app developer, you *use* the variable by including a reference to it
in values in your plugin's `plugin.xml`. The value of the variable (whether the default value
specified in the `preference` element, or a value supplied by the app developer when the plugin
is added to their project) is substituted for references to the variable in values in `plugin.xml`
when those values are used. See [here](
for some more info.
