How to write plugins for OMW 6.

  • Hello everyone!
    Where can I see how to write plugins for OMW 6.
    For starters, I'm interested in a simple plugin with a menu on the left side and the inscription "Hello world!"

    It's time for me to switch from the 4th version, but there are not enough plugins.

    Your best bet is to look at other OMV 6 plugins - https://github.com/openmediava…ediavault/tree/master/deb or https://github.com/OpenMediaVault-Plugin-Developers (I don't have many ported yet).

    This plugin is about as simple as they get - https://github.com/openmediava…r/deb/openmediavault-snmp

    OMV 6 isn't going to be released for months. You should consider upgrading to OMV 5.x first. As for not enough plugins, I am working on porting the omv-extras 5.x plugins to OMV 6.x. But if those aren't what you are referring to, care to elaborate what is missing and not solved by docker?

  • Thank you!
    I have already read your threads about plugins and the difficulties of porting them to the 5th version.

    ([Thoughts] OMV 5.x Plugin Ecosystem)
    Personally, am I missing NGINX? so I am still on the 4th version.
    I will not go to the 5th, but I will wait for the 6th.
    I have some free time, I will try to remake some plugins for the 6th version.

    That plugin caused so many support problems from people breaking the OMV web interface that I did not port it to OMV 5.x. Docker is a much better solution.

    I appreciate any help. Let me know about any questions. I am planning on porting all plugins (zfs is still in question because it will have to be massively rewritten) that were available with omv-extras 5.x to 6.x.

  • Okay.
    I'll try to start with something simple. If there is something, I'll post it here.
