I need help on installing a plugin

So, I am trying to install a who is online plugin but I have no idea how to.

The how to install thingy was kinda not understanding. Install Plugins in Discourse

I still didn’t get it ngl.

Well, you put the plugin url into the app.yml like shown in the link you posted:

    - exec:
        cd: $home/plugins
          - sudo -E -u discourse git clone https://github.com/discourse/docker_manager.git
          - sudo -E -u discourse git clone https://github.com/discourse/discourse-spoiler-alert.git

Here in the example, the plugin is discourse spoiler alert.

Ok so where would I put it? I’m honestly still confused. I just don’t understand.

It would depend on your hosting situation. If you self-host you can install all your plugins in your app.yml on your server (per the linked guide above).

But if you have managed hosting then the available plugins will depend on your hosting tier, and will generally come preinstalled. :+1: You can check out the available ones for our managed hosting tiers, for example, at https://discourse.org/plugins


Thanks Mate. I’ll go ahead and try it.
