Using Hobbits

Read the user guide in the documentation and/or watch this walkthrough video

Adding plugins

Notice (November 2020): Several plugin interfaces are currently being refactored
and much of the documentation is out of date by a few minor version numbers. The
documentation will be updated as the 1.0 interface is decided upon.

Update (December 2020): most of the text documentation is updated, but videos and screenshots are still lagging a little behind.

  1. Read the plugin developer guide in the documentation and/or watch this plugin development video
  2. Run from inside the wizards directory to add Hobbits Plugin Qt Creator templates (restart Qt Creator after doing this)
  3. Add a plugin subproject to the appropriate plugins project and implement your desired functionality
