The create-plugin command will create a Grails plug-in project.


grails create-plugin simple


Creates a Grails plug-in project. A Grails plug-in project is just like a regular Grails project except it contains a plug-in descriptor and can be packaged up as a plug-in and installed into other applications.

Plug-ins are not just useful for plug-in developers, but also as a way to modularize large Grails applications. Refer to the section on Plug-in Development in the user guide for more information on developing plug-ins for Grails.
