The GoodBarber Plugin API allows you to directly utilise the available interaction methods with the application.
Exchange Principle Plugin => Native => Plugin
The method calls from the plugin to the application are made by triggering a web navigation to a particular URL.
Method Calls (Plugin => Native)
- Clicking on a link
- Submitting a form
The majority of available methods (apart from the "basic" methods described in the documentation) must trigger a navigation to a URL beginning with goodbarber://, followed by the name of the method to call and other parameters.
With a few exceptions, the arguments muss go directly through the URL, but in some instance, especially for navigation methods, POST arguments may be used.
Calls and implementation of callbacks (Native => Plugin)
In the documentation for the GoodBarber Plugin API, you will find the definitions of the callbacks that can be implemented, as well as an example of implementation.
Callbacks can be called by the application for two main reasons:
- A method call requiring a response
- During the life cycle of your plugin (methods documented in the Events Callbacks section)
