File Type Plugin Guide¶

Here we will walk through creating a plugin for a new vector file type, georss-simple. There are many other examples of file type support within OpenSphere itself, so have a look here for more examples.

If you wish for this to be an external, separately released plugin, then fork opensphere-plugin-example and follow the instructions in its readme as a starting point.

If you wish for this to be a core plugin included with OpenSphere then simply begin adding your plugin code to src/plugin/yourplugin. However, if you are serious about getting your plugin included to the core project, please create an issue for it so we can discuss it.
