The Overwolf plugin system allows your app to:
- Implement any functionality that is missing from the basic Overwolf API (local file access, networking, playing audio, integration with 3rd party libraries, etc.)
- Leverage your existing C#/C/C++ code and expose it to your app
This is, somewhat, similar to Native Node.js Modules. (We currently do not support Node.js modules – however, in the future we might support it)
We have created a few simple plugins that might answer your extra needs as an app developer or give you a good starting point for developing your own plugin, you can find them in this GitHub repository.
