DarkCrypt for NPP
I found a encryption plugin for Notepad ++ named NPPDarkCrypt, i know it must be unofficial since it wasn’t on the plugin manager but i hear it is amazing and when i launched it, it had over a hundred different encryption methods. My question is why isn’t it on Plugin Manager? Is it in Beta? Is it Malicious?
tl;dr NPPDarkCrypt author hasn’t put it in the plugin manager.
The plugin manager is just a tool for convenience. If a plugin is in the manager doesn’t mean it is official (and visa versa). It is up to the plugin author if they want people to download it through the plugin manager or not. Plugins submitted to the plugin manager are roughly checked to make sure they don’t do anything obviously malicious but that doesn’t mean every line of code is reviewed.
