Plug management using the PLUGS file is also implemented in the Editor plug.

The optional PLUGS file is only processed when running the command, in which case it will fetch all the listed plugs and copy them into the (hidden) _plug/ folder in the user’s space. SilverBullet loads these files on boot (or on demand after running the command).

You can also use the to add a plug, which will automatically create a PLUGS if it does not yet exist.

The Editor plug has support for the following URI prefixes for plugs:

  • https: loading plugs via HTTPS, e.g. [https://](
  • github:org/repo/file.plug.js internally rewritten to a https url as above.
  • ghr:org/repo/version to fetch a plug from a Github release
