Resources for plugin users
- If you've found a bug in one of the plugins, learn how to submit a bug report:
Resources for plugin authors
- The pyQGIS cookbook is an ongoing effort to collect tips and tricks about QGIS python programming.
- The QGIS API is the ultimate reference for plugins creators
- Please consider adding your code as a subplugin of Processing, rather than as a separate plugin: you save coding, and the users have more consistent and powerful tools, that can be integrated in a model, run in batch, and more
How to add your plugin to this repository
- Go to QGIS plugin repo and click on Share a plugin. The approval procedure should take 2 weeks maximum. If not approved, a e-mail will be sent to you. For a prompt approval, please check that your plugin:
- has no malicious code
- goes to the appropriate menu (Vector, Raster, Web, Database)
- has at least minimal documentation
- does not duplicate of existing functionalities or plugin, unless there is a good reason
- has a proper license
- does not contain architecture-dependant binaries
- supports English language
- provides a minimal data set for testing
- has (in the metadata) a link to the code repository and to a bug tracking system of your choice (you can use github or other infrastructures)
- is of reasonable size (try to keep it small, and not exceed 10 Mb)
- english language is used in code (comments, identifiers)
- source repository is in good shape:
- no generated file is left in repository (ui_*.py, resources_rc.py, gen. help files…)
- good code organization (subfolders)
- code comments are available
- PEP8 & Python/QGIS guidelines compliance
- a README file and a LICENCE file (GPL2 or later mandatory) are present
- the licence is compliant wrt external dependencies (e.g. no import of proprietary python module)
- does not break any other licence (e.g. for data providers, etc.) or do any illegal thing
- more info about licencing in our blog post
- if the plugin has a need for external dependency, this it should be clearly stated in the About metadata field
- if some dependencies are not available in OSGeo4w Python, a clear indication of how to install them should be given
- the name of the plugin and the folder name do not repeat the word `plugin`
- finally, the use of plugin builder plugin is recommended, especially for new users.
