Any documentation for Thunar Plugin API?

Hello.
I want to try writing of plugin for thunar. But unlike some other projects (xfce4-panel), i completely failed to find any documentation, like what may be found for glib/gtk, wnck, xfce4-panel, much more - usually may be read in devhelp or at least in browser.

I have image about how to use gobject-based API, but tried to create own. Last time i had experience, contributing to vala-panel-appmenu, what is uncomparable with begining, like what i have to try (though i could do it on python for begining, i would prefer C).

Looking to docs, i found only various hacking guides and info about thunarvcs - something unrelated (searching docs, related to headers, installed with thunar, as thunarx-2 package).
Though thunarx-python has examples for some bit, woud be great to find some C-related docs, usually created by gtk-doc.

Is there any?

Re: Any documentation for Thunar Plugin API?

Hello and welcome.

If you are referring to thunarx extensions, they can be installed provided that thunar is built with "--enable-gtk-doc --enable-gen-doc". For example, here is a copy of the 4.10 reference manual. Perhaps distro's aren't building the reference manual.

I'm not sure how up-to-date the reference manual is. You could ask at the xfce4-dev mailing list.

I was about to quote from the Xfce-dev irc channel and then realised that the OP was answered there a day ago. That is the best place to ask as that is the developers and have the latest information.

It's been fixed in the git tree: https://git.xfce.org/xfce/thunar/commit … 5468e4236a

Re: Any documentation for Thunar Plugin API?

Thanks! if so, i could get it readable at least from source tree smile
Is that version compatible with gtk2 thunar version?
I mean, wether thunarx is same between them?

I'm not sure how to up-to-date the documentation is. Thunarx has been migrated to GTK3 in the git tree. You should ask at the xfce4-dev mailing list.
