The nil plugin

The nil plugin does not run any language-specific packaging logic, and is useful for parts with no source, or for parts with sources that don’t need to be compiled or packed.

By using the nil plugin, parts can be defined purely by using properties automatically included by Snapcraft, such as stage-packages.

For examples, search GitHub for projects already using the plugin.

This is a snapcraft plugin. See Snapcraft plugins and Supported plugins for further details on how plugins are used.
