botpourri supports the dynamic runtime hot loading, unloading and updating of 3rd party plugins. Developers will publish their plugins to our open marketplace. you browse the selection and install the ones you want.

An installed plugin is not automatically loaded. you must use the bot’s web interface, navigate to ADMIN -> Plugins, find the plugin you wish to “activate” – in other words, be available. Then you switch to PLUGINS -> “name of newly activated plugin”. Plugins will always default to “disabled” when they are first loaded.
