[IMPLEMENTED] Add Plugin System

e.g.: https://github.com/awesome-inc/NuPlug

But that would take the place of the “sample schemas” – giving people the ability to deploy, say, a CRM skeleton.

Obviously an architectural challenge :slight_smile:

Yes, it is planned. For me a requirement would be that it works with docker, e.g. by containers as plugins or so.

To make full usage of the UI must become extensible step by step as well. As a first step I auto generate the UI for the rule actions based on the metadata of the properties and the class:

To load a plugin you have to add it to the configuration: https://github.com/Squidex/squidex/blob/feature/plugins/src/Squidex/appsettings.json#L24
