Less then a week after the official announcement of the SubtextPlugins website, today I added the first tutorial on writing a Subtext Plugin.

The first document covers the basics of building a Subtext plugin.

This the TOC of the article:

  1. Introduction to Subtext Plugins
  2. How to develop a plugin for Subtext
    1. Download and install the latest Subtext v2.0
    2. Create a new VS project
    3. Extend PluginBase
    4. Add Plugin information with attributes
    5. Handle events
    6. Install the Plugin
    7. Enable the Plugin
    8. Test the Plugin
  3. What's next

In next document I'll write about building a more advanced plugin, that uses the plugin API to store and read blog and entry specific settings.
