The plugins permit you to add or extend (through hooks) the CMS functionalities for all your needs without affecting the core of the CMS. These plugins are small rails apps that include routes, views, helpers, controllers, translations, models, gems, etc and then you can create plugins like a normal ruby on rails project.
