About making plugins

Hello everyone,

I have some questions about making plugins.

First of all, is it necessary to learn C ++ or other languages to make a plugin?

Secondly, there is a cluster function in grasshopper, you can integrate the parameters you want

to combine together, but can the integrated pattern be changed? For example, replace it with other



To make a proper Grasshopper plugin you will need at least C# or VB (C# being the most popular). You can also use Python but that will require you to make User Objects instead of .gha’s (unless that has changed).

If by pattern you mean icon, you can use any image. The image must be exactly 24x24 pixels and you can drag the image from your computer directly onto the cluster to change the icon.


thank u
