Extensions are developed and distributed by multiple authors. Some extensions are free and open-source, while others are only available commercially.
- open-source extensions can be found via the Mechanic website
- commercial extensions can be found in the Extension Store
If none of the available extensions suits your needs, you can also create your own extensions with Python (or hire someone to do it for you).
Getting extensions with Mechanic 2
All types of extensions can be downloaded, installed and managed using the Mechanic 2 extension.
Getting extensions manually
Extensions can also be downloaded and installed manually (without using Mechanic).
