Cutter supports writing plugins in both C++ and Python. If you are unsure which one to choose, we strongly suggest starting with Python since it allows for a quicker and easier workflow.
If you plan to implement support for a new file format or architecture, Cutter plugins are not the correct approach. Instead, you will want to implement a radare2 plugin, which is documented here.
Loading and Overview¶
Plugins are loaded from an OS-dependent user-level directory. To get the location of this directory and a list of currently loaded plugins, navigate to Edit -> Preferences -> Plugins.
The plugins directory contains two subdirectories,
python for C++ and Python plugins respectively,
which will be created automatically by Cutter.
The support for Python plugins is only available if Cutter was built with the options
This is the case for all official builds from GitHub Releases starting with version 1.8.0.
