This is a list of all PMS plugins i.e. jar files that can be placed in the plugins directory to enhance and extend PMS. (Third-party tools and mods can be found in the FAQ and elsewhere in this subforum.) Thanks to otmanix for creating the original list of additional software.

If you have developed a plugin or know of a plugin that isn't listed, please post and I'll add it to the list. Likewise, if you know of a plugin that no longer works with the latest stable version of PMS (on the plugin's supported platforms), please let me know.

Good idea chocolateboy! I must just warn people before they run to github to try and use my crappy code there. It simply doesn't work and I have been stuck in other projects so I have not have the time to update the code at github. How come it is so hard to this on your own private project but so easy at work?

Hi, perhaps add new section "Additions" and put viewtopic.php?f=12&t=5641.

It's not plugin per se but very useful! :)

Go for it!

It doesn't belong in this thread, which, as I said, is just for plugins, but feel free to create a new thread for third-party tools and addons (start with otmanix's list). :-)

Perhaps this thread should be sticky?

Perhaps this thread should not be sticky, but its info copied to "documentation/plugins.html" in the standard PMS source?

Where is the PlugIn directory on a Mac OSX system?
I have searched high and low.. both on onthe system.. application package contents.. on google.. in these FAQs.. most of it is about the PC version.. which is easy to find a plugin directory..
