Each plugin needs to provide some basic information about itself. This is done through a file called
plugin.info.txt located in the plugin directory.
Here's an example how such a file should look like.
base example author My Full Name email email@example.com date 2010-01-17 name Example Plugin to do Stuff desc This is just an Example of how a plugin description looks like url https://www.dokuwiki.org/plugin:example

plugin.info.txt replaces the old getInfo() call in your plugin components for DokuWiki 2009-12-25 “Lemming” and later. getInfo() is now implemented in the base class and will read all info from this file. It no longer needs to be implemented in your sub classes.
