|8.2 Writing ipelets|
An ipelet is an extension to Ipe. Ipe 7 uses the scripting language Lua (in fact, most of the Ipe program itself is written in Lua), and loads ipelets written in Lua when it starts up. It is also possible to write ipelets in C++, using a small Lua wrapper that declares the methods available inside the ipelet.
Documentation about writing ipelets can be found in the Ipelib documentation.
