The FormIt Plugin Playground is a plugin that helps you build plugins. It creates the minimal set of files needed - and lets you modify, test, and play - never requiring you to leave the application.

As you work on your plugin, you’ll want to save your progress. We have made an integration with GitHub to make this achievable.

  1. Login to GitHub and allow FormIt3D to have access to your repositories (projects).

  2. Create a project. Type in a name and click the + button.

Save Step 1

  1. In a few moments the newly created project will show in your projects list. Select it to load it. This will load the same default plugin from above, because this is the defualt state of a plugin.
