A set of (gh) clusters is considered a plugin?

Hello everyone,

this is a simple question about terminology or something like this. Take the case:
one makes many definitions of Grasshopper components and each one saves it as a UserObjet/cluster/component. Then these UserObjects are shared with other people.

Would it be correct to say that it is a plugin, even if not written in code? Are take into consideration as a real extension? or since these tools can be made from Gh have a different category? If yes, what would be the proper term?

Thank you.

I think some existing plugins already are like this.

There is no official specification of what counts as a plugin, I suppose anything non-standard which adds functionality can be considered one.

GH doesn’t draw a distinction between plug-ins, add-ons, and extensions, and I frankly don’t see the point of doing that. Calling everything a plug-in is fine by me.

Thanks David, that’s what I thought.

But just in case,
does anyone have a different opinion?
or this is the general view or “academically” accepted from the world of software development?
