Tutorial for getting started on Joplin plugin ecosystem?

HI, I was wondering if there exist come comprehensive documentation, or some hello-world kind of tutorial for developing joplin extensions. I have mediocre experience, and I would like to write a simple plugin for literate programming in joplin. (basically a simple program to collect code blocks and arrange them into weave a program src file and documentation). Since joplin in already my goto app, and works with md it should not be too difficult. But I couldnt find any introduction.

I think you can do that using the REST API, which is documented there: https://joplinapp.org/api/

If you use nodejs, you can try this npm package (there is also a python version)

If you are writing an actual plug-in, these look relevant:

I don’t know if they are up-to-date, but it is a place to start
