manifest.json Configuration

In this article, we will provide a detailed explanation of all the supported fields in the manifest.json file for an Eagle plugin.

Each plugin must include a manifest.json file. This file defines the plugin's execution method and basic information such as the plugin's name, version number, and entry point for the execution code.

A complete configuration for a manifest.json file might look like this:

    "id": "LBCZE8V6LPCKD",
    "version": "1.0.0",
    "platform": "all",
    "arch": "all",
    "name": "Windows Plugin",
    "logo": "/logo.png",
    "keywords": [],
    "devTools": false,
        "url": "index.html",
        "width": 640,
        "height": 480,
        "minWidth": 640,
        "minHeight": 480,
        "maxWidth": 640,
        "maxHeight": 480,
        "alwaysOnTop": false,
        "frame": true,
        "fullscreenable": true,
        "maximizable": true,

        "resizable": true,
        "backgroundColor": "#ffffff",
        "multiple": false,
        "runAfterInstall": false
