The first steps in development are initializing the plugin, and defining the type of plugin through templates. At the bottom of the page, we will begin to follow a simple example

Make sure you run npm install in the /plugins directory in HollaEx Kit before any other steps.

To start the development process, you need to initialize the plugin template. This template includes the folder structure and some pre-defined configurations to facilitate the development experience.

Below is a list of available plugin templates:

TypeTemplate Details


adds a new page with customizable access from the side and top menus


adds a new verification tab to the user verification page


adds a deposit and withdraw page for a fiat currency


adds KYC tab to the user verification page


adds bank verification tab to the user verification page


adds a template without initial meta object values


adds an on-ramp section for the fiat controls feature


adds an app view to the apps section tables


adds a template without any view (Server-only)

Initializing the Plugin Template

  1. Once you decide on the type of plugin, go to /plugins and run npm run add:plugin --plugin=<PLUGIN_NAME> --type=<PLUGIN_TYPE> to initialize the plugin template.

npm run add:plugin --plugin=<PLUGIN_NAME> --type=<PLUGIN_TYPE>

This will create a folder named the plugin's name in the /plugins folder.

Moving Forward - Plugin Components

In order to develop a plugin, we need to understand all the main components of a plugin. These main components of any HollaEx plugin will be looked at in the next sections.
