Plugins are small programs that Awasu can run to perform some task.

There are two types of plugin:

Plugins can be written in any language you want. The only requirement is that they be able to read a Windows INI file and can write to the console. Popular choices are scripting languages such as Python or Perl but you could also use Java, C++ or C#.


Channel hooks are similar to plugins and are small programs that get run when certain things happen while a channel is updating e.g. new items are received.
