Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Usage of third party plugin template

I would like to incorporate a suite of 3rd party libraries (specifically, ROS2) into UE4. I've seen the post at https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/670654/view.html , but that is more about adding 3rd party libs directly to a project. Alternatively, I'd like to create a plugin since I believe this will ultimately be more portable.

The unreal editor has a plugin template for a third party library, but it seems to be directed at compiling said 3rd party library from source. I want to use static libraries already compiled elsewhere (again, in my case, using the ROS compile tools) and just pull in the needed headers and lib files with this plugin.

Is there any documentation that illustrates the usage of the third party plugin template? If not, can someone explain where in that template I would add my headers and lib files to make them visible to a project that uses the third party plugin template?

Product Version: UE 4.21
