MuseScore functionality can be extended by plugins. Discovering the compatible plugins and installing them however is currently a manual job. You have to use a web browser to choose and download a plugin of the correct version from a plugin page, extract it using your file archiver, copy qml files(and sometimes with translation files) to MuseScore plugin directory and finally reload the plugins in MuseScore.
The whole process described above is possible to be fully automated, which is exactly the goal of this project.
The project consists of 2 parts:
- A plugin store from which the user can discover, (un)install and auto-update plugins from the MuseScore plugin repository in an easy manner.
- Improvements of the old plugin manager The main change is integrating both local plugins and plugins from store.
