Hippo CMS Plugins
Hippo CMS has a pluggable architecture and many additional features are available as plugins. Hippo CMS provides three levels of support for plugins:
- Default plugins, included in the Hippo CMS archetype by default.
- Standard plugins, available from theEssentials feature library.
- Community maintained, available from the Hippo Forge at Github with its own documentation site at GitHub.io.
A default or standard plugin meets BloomReach quality standards, is properly documented, and is tested against each new Hippo CMS release and updated if necessary.
Hippo CMS Default Plugins
Default plugins are developed and supported by BloomReach, and they are already included in the Maven archetype used to start Hippo CMS projects and no additional installation steps through the setup application are required.
Hippo CMS Standard Plugins in the Essentials Setup Application/Feature Library
Standard plugins are developed and supported by BloomReach and can be added to your project from the feature library in the Essentials setup application.
