How to add a plugin

To install a plugin, select it in the Settings and hit the Download button afterwards. This initiates the download of the plugin file in the default system browser.

All plugins are provided as zip archives which you need to extract on the local system. Afterwards, switch to the Local tab under Plugins in Seer's Settings, and click on add. This opens a file browser which you use to select the json file in the folder you have extracted the archive to.

Once done, support for the new file types has been added to Seer.

How to write a plugin
Replace invocation

Seer simply replaces *SEER_INPUT_PATH* with the triggered file, replaces *SEER_OUTPUT_PATH* with the saving path. If the plugin output file doesn't contain a suffix, you can append suffix to the *SEER_OUTPUT_PATH*.

In practical use, it looks like this:

nconvert.exe -out pdf -o *SEER_OUTPUT_PATH*.pdf *SEER_INPUT_PATH*

Source code for example

Raw python script invocation
  1. plugin json file: "exec": "python.exe \"E:\\\" \"*SEER_INPUT_PATH*\" \"*SEER_OUTPUT_PATH*\""
  2. move the plugin.json to python.exe folder
  3. add plugin.json to Seer
Or you can write python invocation to a cmd file, please check Rename.
