If you have Docker (or a compatible container engine) installed, use the docker-maven-joget image to quickly generate and build plugins with minimal pre-requisites.

To use this simplified approach, you just need to run some commands in a terminal (Mac/Linux) or PowerShell (Windows).

NOTE: ${PWD} is for Mac, Linux and Windows PowerShell. For Windows Command Prompt, replace ${PWD} with "%cd%".

This approach is suitable to quickly get started. For long-term development, you should set up a proper Java development environment as described in Build Source Code on Windows or Build Source Code on Linux.

Generate a Plugin

1. Run the following command to generate a plugin project (adjust the groupId and artifactId values as required)

docker run -it --rm -v ${PWD}:/usr/src/mymaven -w /usr/src/mymaven jogetworkflow/docker-maven-joget:7.0-SNAPSHOT mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeGroupId="org.joget" -DarchetypeArtifactId="wflow-plugin-archetype" -DarchetypeVersion="7.0-SNAPSHOT" -DgroupId="org.joget.plugin" -DartifactId="custom-plugin"

Build a Plugin

1. Navigate to the plugin source code directory/folder containing the pom.xml file

2. Run the following command to clean and build the project

docker run -it --rm -v ${PWD}:/root/.m2 -v ${PWD}:/usr/src/mymaven -w /usr/src/mymaven jogetworkflow/docker-maven-joget:7.0-SNAPSHOT mvn clean install
