extra shots for your awesome espresso

Hyde is built with a nuclear engine that is stripped down but powerful. Even core features like metadata are added as plugins to keep the engine bloat free.

Hyde’s plugin architecture is event driven; plugins get notified during the course of the generation to allow them to alter/guide the generation process.

If you are interested in creating plugins for hyde, you can read the developer documentation.


Hyde’s plugins get loaded if they are listed in the plugins section of configuration. Plugins also accept additional parameters in their respective sections. For example, MyAwesomePlugin will get parameters from myawesome section in the configuration file.
