Plugin Conversion

If you already have a plugin developed and would like to convert it to be compatible with osDXP, following this developer reference will provide you with the required information to achieve osDXP compatibility.


Below you can find examples of osDXP plugin conversions, available from the osDXP GitHub organization repos.


For transparency into our release cycle and in striving to maintain backward compatibility, osDXP Dashboard is maintained under the Romantic Versioning guidelines. Sometimes we screw up, but we adhere to those rules whenever possible.
