Learning to make a plug in

Hey everyone ,
Long time octoprint user. I have several ideas for plugins that I want to explore. Problem is I have zero programming skills and I found the info page on octoprint website a little too complicated to understand. I want to learn to make them but I dont know where to start.

Can anyone point me in the right direction? I have started to learn python under the assumption the PI runs it. Thanks for any help!

The hello world example is definitely the place to start. That along with looking at what other plugins have done is how I got started. I had programming experience, but none in python and not much knowledge of the frameworks (knockout, jinja specifically) used in octoprint. It's a lot of trial and error in the beginning, but it's very rewarding in the end when you get it to do what you want.


While scrolling through the docs I found this
