Explore plugins

Plugins perform predefined tasks. They are essentially templated scripts that can be written in any programming language. Plugins are also useful for integrating with other tools in your SDLC toolchain.

You can write your own plugins or use pre-built plugins, such as those in the Drone Plugins Marketplace, the Drone Plugins GitHub org, and the Harness Community GitHub org.

This page highlights some useful or interesting pre-built plugins. It is not an exhaustive list of all plugins. Plugins are organized by provider/tool or purpose.

To run plugins in CI pipelines, use Plugin steps.

name: Plugin_1
identifier: Plugin_1
image: kytay/sonar-node-plugin ## Sonarscanner plugin image.
from_secret: sonar_host
from_secret: sonar_token
