For XD to know your plugin exists, you'll need to put it in a certain folder on your computer and give it a name. On this page, you can learn where plugins are stored on your machine..
Parent folder path#
Adobe XD loads plugins from the
develop folders. These folders are stored in a specific storage location based on your platform:
This path will eventually (if it doesn't already) contain two folders:
develop folder is used during plugin development, and is the only folder XD will reload plugins from when you reload plugins from the Plugins menu.
XD makes it very easy for you to get to the
develop folder: simply go to this menu item: Plugins > Development > Show Develop Folder.
tip If there isn't a folder that already exists named
develop, you can go ahead and create it yourself.
plugins folder is where production plugins are stored when the user installs them.
During development, you should not store your plugin in this folder, instead opting for the
develop folder, as noted above. In other words, you should not need to work with the
plugins folder directly; XD will manage this folder for the user.
