Empty TWiki Plugin

This is an empty plugin you can use as a template to build your own TWikiPlugins. This plugin does nothing, but is ready to be used.

To create your own plugin:

  • Copy file TWiki/Plugins/EmptyPlugin.pm to <name>Plugin.pm and customize the plugin.
  • Create a <name>Plugin topic in the TWiki web. Do so by visiting http://TWiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Plugins/ and starting a new topic to get the default plugin topic text (don't save the topic). Customize your plugin topic to your needs.
  • See details in TWikiPlugins.
