How do I install third party plugins?

Members of the community and other developers can create custom editors or themes that can be used with Standard Notes. These 3rd party components can be installed through the Advanced settings menu:

  1. Take note of the install link for the 3rd party component you'd like to install.
  2. In Standard Notes, click or tap on the Open Preferences icon
  3. On the Preferences menu, select General, then open the Advanced settings dropdown menu
  4. Scroll to the bottom of the dropdown menu, then paste your install link into the box labelled, "Install External Plugin"
Please note that 3rd party plugins are not reviewed by the Standard Notes team.
