LPE Plugins

Registered by Johan Engelen on 2008-03-02

Right now, LPEs are compiled and linked together with inkscape. It would be much nicer if LPEs can be compiled into libraries (dynamically linked libs) that Inkscape can load. Then people can download new LPEs from others independently of Inscape releases!

Whiteboard

2008-03-13 bryce: The API need to be sketched out a bit (nothing firm, just ideas on what functionality should be provided). A conceptual example might help as well.

2014-07-21 inkscapebrony: It would be very cool to have compiled modules in ~/.config/inkscape/livepatheffects (or similar config dir) and just have the program dlopen() [LoadLibraryEx() if you're a windows fanatic] them. A potential problem in this is that linking against a static 2geom will hurt performance, and making 2geom dynamic (and installing header files) is a bit of work.
