This document describes Gerrit JavaScript plugin endpoints that you can hook into for customizing the UI. It is assumed that you are familiar with the general dev guide.

You can either hook into an endpoint by calling plugin.hook(endpoint) and then interact with the returned HookApi, which has onAttached(callback) and onDetached(callback) methods.

Or you can define a Web Component,role=external,window=_blank and register it directly using plugin.registerCustomComponent(endpoint, elementName).

Sample code for using an endpoint:

Gerrit.install(plugin => {
  const endpoint = 'change-metadata-item';
  plugin.hook(endpoint).onAttached(element => {
    const el = element.appendChild(document.createElement('div'));
    el.textContent = 'Ah, there it is. Lovely.';
    el.style = 'background: pink; line-height: 4em; text-align: center;';
  });
});
