Overview of plug-ins

Plug-ins enable users to extend the functionality of the DITA-OT. This might entail adding support for specialized document types, integrating processing overrides, or defining new output transformations.

A plug-in consists of a directory, typically stored within the plugins/ directory inside of the DITA-OT. Every plug-in is controlled by a file named plugin.xml, which is located in the root directory of the plug-in.
