An Open Directory plug-in is an OS X dynamically loaded library that responds to requests for directory service from applications that are clients of Open Directory.

This book describes the runtime environment for Open Directory plug-ins and how to build and configure an Open Directory plug-in. It also describes the entry points that an Open Directory plug-in must provide, the requests that an Open Directory plug-in must be prepared to respond to, and the Open Directory callback routines that the plug-in can call to register and unregister nodes and to write in log files.
