Built-in plugins​

Strapi comes with the following built-in plugins that are officially maintained and documented by the Strapi core team:

Automatic plugins discovery​

Strapi automatically loads plugins installed with npm. Under the hood, Strapi scans every package.json file of the project dependencies, and looks for the following declaration:

"strapi": {
"kind": "plugin"

Installed plugins can also be manually enabled or disabled.

Manual enabling/disabling of plugins​

To disable a plugin without uninstalling it, switch its enabled key to false in the /config/plugins.js file.
