Zotero 5 Plugin development


on https://www.zotero.org/support/dev/client_coding it is stated that the documentation may be outdated.
My question ist: Is the way Plugin development should be done changing in Zotero 5 from XUL to Webextensions or is it future save to start development of a XUL Plugin?

  • Same question!
  • Zotero is currently actively in the process of migrating from XUL to React as its interface framework. When Zotero moves its development to Electron from Firefox in the near future, the XUL interface elements for any plugins will need to be re-written. But the JavaScript for your plugin functionality will still work just the same.

    (WebExtensions is a completely different thing that Zotero isn't using at all other than for its browser connector plugins.)
