What are plugins? Plugins are extensions to the Dita-OT code that add or modify functionality. Although plugins are often used to add specializations to the Dita-OT, they can also be used to simply override processing logic for standard elements. This allows users to customize the logic of the system without actually changing the code in the Dita-OT installation. In many cases, plugins can be carried over to an upgraded version of the OT and still run properly.

Contributed open-source plugins.
