Plugin Writer’s Guide¶
This documentation is for Pulp Plugin developers. For Pulp Core development, see the our contributor docs.
Pulp Core does not manage content by itself, but instead relies on plugins to add support for one content type or another. Examples of content types include RPM packages, Ansible roles, and Container images.
This documentation outlines how to create a Pulp plugin that provides features like:
Define a new content type and its attributes
Download and save the new type of content into Pulp Core
Publish the new type of content, allowing Pulp Core to serve it at a
Export content to remote servers or CDNs
Add custom web application views
Implement custom features, e.g. dependency solving, retension/deletion policies, etc.
Along with this guide, it may be useful to refer to to our simplest plugin, pulp_file.
Additionally we provide a Plugin Template which will take care of a majority of the boilerplate.
