Plugins location

HippoEDIT uses predefined folders for automatic loading of plugins. There are two locations, where plugin folder can be found:

  • plugins - sub-folder in installation directory. Default location for automatic installation from Online repository. If installation directory located in Program Files, you will be asked for administrative privileges, when installing new plugin.
  • plugins - sub-folder in user directory. No automatic installation of plugins supported. Normally you do not need administrative rights to install and auto load plugins from there.

In addition to auto searching and loading of the plugins from predefined locations, you can install scripting plugins explicitly, by selecting of the main scripting plugin file with Tools→Execute… command. Once scripting plugin executed, it registered for auto load and will started in next editor session.
