Custom plugins in Core22


The build command used by the Python plugin isn’t doing the correct magic for the snap we’re building, and we have previously (< core22) made a custom plugin that has manipulated some of the commands.

Since the Python package in core20 isn’t supported by the software we’re snapping, we have so far done some tweaks to install Python 3.9+.

However that broke few weeks ago (I guess on the release of snapcraft 7? :man_shrugging:t2:) and was thinking that instead of spending hours on tweaking it yet again, I could instead use core22.

But… I can’t get custom plugins to be registered/recognized by snapcraft.

Anyone knows the state on this?

According to Writing local plugins | Snapcraft documentation Local plugins are not supported.
