Plugin location

For XD to know your plugin exists, you'll need to put it in a certain folder on your computer and give it a name. On this page, you can learn where plugins are stored on your machine..

Parent folder path

Adobe XD loads plugins from the plugins and develop folders. These folders are stored in a specific storage location based on your platform:

Platform Path
macOS ~/Library/Application\ Support/Adobe/Adobe\ XD/
Windows C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\Packages\Adobe.CC.XD_adky2gkssdxte\LocalState\

This path will eventually (if it doesn't already) contain two folders: develop and plugins.

The develop folder

The develop folder is used during plugin development, and is the only folder XD will reload plugins from when you reload plugins from the Plugins menu.

XD makes it very easy for you to get to the develop folder: simply go to this menu item: Plugins > Development > Show Develop Folder.

If there isn't a folder that already exists named develop, you can go ahead and create it yourself.

The plugins folder

The plugins folder is where production plugins are stored when the user installs them.

During development, you should not store your plugin in this folder, instead opting for the develop folder, as noted above. In other words, you should not need to work with the plugins folder directly; XD will manage this folder for the user.
