Subject Re: Extending the CloudStack API
Date Mon, 18 Mar 2013 06:24:15 GMT
You may for example study smaller plugins such as ldap, md5 etc. (in
plugins/user-authenticators) for both 4.1+ and pre-4.1 versions.

For 4.1+ you should take a look at plugins/{acl, api} as well, they
too are small and read-able. And, may be you can help us write the
stub: https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/CLOUDSTACK/CloudStack+API+Development
as a fresh developer trying to write a plugin you would be able to
write it with verbosity.

Regards.
