 [https://www.guifications.org/ GPlugin] was added as a Pidgin dependency in May 2015. It's meant to allow plugins to be written in any programming language through the use of [https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/GObjectIntrospection GObject introspection]. There were build problems in 0.18 involving Mozilla's gjs library (apparently only C++ headers were available while C headers were needed), but that's been removed as a dependency for now.
 GPlugin is new, and isn't yet included in Debian or Ubuntu's package repos. You therefore have to build from source. Additionally, I wasn't able to find which (if any) environment variable determines the search path for `.gir` files. I therefore grudgingly installed it without my build environment prefix. I've since been told that such an environment variable does exist, though - I'll share it here once I find it.
+==== Moonscript ====
+GPlugin requires Moonscript, a Lua library that isn't available in package repos. To get it, just install Lua^^Rocks and call `luarocks --local install moonscript`. It will use `$HOME/.luarocks` as the prefix, so add its subdirs to your env vars as needed.
