Installing a Plugin

This example uses the postals plugin.
If you have not already installed the plugin framework, please do so before continuing.

1. Download

Download the plugin from its repository. These are found under its plugin page, like here for the postals plugin.

2. Extract

Extract the plugins to your sonorancad\plugins folder.

3. Configure and Enable the Config

  1. 1.
    Open the CHANGEMEconfig_postals.lua file (name depends on the plugin) and configure as desired. The files are usually commented, and more details are on its plugin page.
  2. 2.
    Enable the plugin by changing the enabled variable from false to true in the plugin config.
2. Rename and remove the CHANGEME from the file toconfig_postals.lua (depending on name of plugin).
This is how your folder should look now.

4. Restart Sonoran CAD

Restart the sonorancad resource by entering restart sonorancad in the console and enjoy your new plugin!


Sonoran CAD's integration framework and plugins will automatically update with the latest features, fixes, and changes!
Or, run sonoran pluginupdate to instantly check and update all plugins.
