Bases: dissect.target.plugin.Plugin

Base class for plugins.

Plugins can optionally be namespaced by specifying the __namespace__ class attribute. Namespacing results in your plugin needing to be prefixed with this namespace when being called. For example, if your plugin has specified test as namespace and a function called example, you must call your plugin with test.example:

A Plugin class has the following private class attributes:

  • __namespace__

  • __record_descriptors__

With the following three being assigned in register():

  • __plugin__

  • __functions__

  • __exports__

Additionally, the methods and attributes of Plugin receive more private attributes by using decorators.

The export() decorator adds the following private attributes

  • __exported__

  • __output__: Set with the export() decorator.

  • __record__: Set with the export() decorator.

The internal() decorator and InternalPlugin set the __internal__ attribute. Finally. args() decorator sets the __args__ attribute.


target – The Target object to load the plugin for.

__namespace__ = 'config_tree'#
check_compatible() None#

Perform a compatibility check with the target.

This function should return None if the plugin is compatible with the current target (self.target). For example, check if a certain file exists. Otherwise it should raise an UnsupportedPluginError.


UnsupportedPluginError – If the plugin could not be loaded.

Create a configuration entry from a file, or a ConfigurationFilesystem from a directory.

If a directory is specified in path, the other arguments should be provided in the get call if needed.

  • path – The path to either a directory or file.

  • hint – What kind of parser it should use.

  • collapse – Whether it should collapse everything or just a certain set of keys.

  • collapse_inverse – Invert the collapse function to collapse everything but the keys inside collapse.

  • separator – The separator that should be used for parsing.

  • comment_prefixes – What is specified as a comment.

  • as_dict – Return a dictionary instead of an entry.
