Introduction

Scanyp is highly customizable, and it's very easy to add your custom extension to have your own tab. For example, CodeSmells is an extension added to the product GUI.



Scanyp provides out of the box many widgets to quickly create advanced extensions.

Create your first extension step by step

  • Create the extension folder: Inside the $ScanypInstallDirectory/extensions folder, create your extension folder

  • Create extension.json file inside your folder: This file will contains some metadata about the extension.
  • Activate the extension: Finally you have to go to Admin->Extensions section to activate the extension
