Wox supports plugin development using Python. Wox comes with a Python environment and its standard library, so user didn't need to install python environment anymore.
Wox build-in the requests and beautifulsoup4 library, so plugin makers can use them to access web contents.

You can refer this project when you making python plugins:Wox.Plugin.HackerNews

Steps to making a python plugin:

import requests
from bs4 import BeautifulSoup
import webbrowser
from wox import Wox,WoxAPI

#Your class must inherit from Wox base class https://github.com/qianlifeng/Wox/blob/master/PythonHome/wox.py
#The wox class here did some works to simplify the communication between Wox and python plugin.
class Main(Wox):

  def request(self,url):
    #If user set the proxy, you should handle it.
    if self.proxy and self.proxy.get("enabled") and self.proxy.get("server"):
      proxies = {
      return requests.get(url,proxies = proxies)
      return requests.get(url)

  # A function named query is necessary, we will automatically invoke this function when user query this plugin
  def query(self,key):
    r = self.request('https://news.ycombinator.com/')
    bs = BeautifulSoup(r.text)
    results = []
    for i in bs.select(".comhead"):
      title = i.previous_sibling.text
      url = i.previous_sibling["href"]
        "Title": title ,
          #You can invoke both your python functions and Wox public APIs .
          #If you want to invoke Wox public API, you should invoke as following format: Wox.xxxx
          #you can get the public name from https://github.com/qianlifeng/Wox/blob/master/Wox.Plugin/IPublicAPI.cs,
          #just replace xxx with the name provided in this url
          "method": "openUrl",
          #you MUST pass parater as array
          #hide the query wox or not

    return results

  def openUrl(self,url):

  #Following statement is necessary
  if __name__ == "__main__":
  • After you create a plugin, you can copy the plugin to <WoxDirectory>\Plugins\<YourPluginDirectory> and restart the Wox. You can so upload the plugin to Wox Plugin, So other users can use your plugins.
