  3. Search and Replace the Following with your Dev ID and Plugin Name (Keep the same format Capital letters and _ or – as shown):
    • devidplugintemplate
    • devid-plugintemplate
  4. Understand the 3D Object naming scheme.
  5. Write your code, here are some key functional areas:
    • PHP Hooks – Write your JavaScript script pages and functions and use the PHP Hooks to activate them within key WTW core functions.
    • Connect PHP Files – used to pull JSON data from the database on your server or provide another server with structure data.
    • Handlers PHP Files – used to connect to your database (select, insert, update, or delete data) during 3D browsing.
    • Functions PHP Files – used commonly with Handlers to complete the Database tasks.
    • Menus PHP Files – add your items to the main or Admin (Editor) Menu.
    • Action Zones JavaScript – triggers placed in the 3D Scenes to activate JavaScript (Loading, unloading, start animation, activate functions, etc…).
    • Molds (Meshes with Wrappers) JavaScript – These are 3D objects, shapes, particle systems, and Babylon Code produced effects (like smoke) used in the 3D Scenes. Use this to create or add your own custom Molds (Meshes).
    • Coverings (Materials with Wrappers) JavaScript – These are the textures, materials, coloring, transparency, alpha, reflection, refraction, and other special effects relating to covering (materials) the surface of the Molds (Meshes).
