Can anyone please guide me how to write a plugin from scratch for framemaker using extendscript?

My goal is to modify the index marker and cross references by using the extendscript plugin.

But I am not able to find any good source from where I can understand the basics of writing the plugin using extendscript.

Hi,

I have a series of free samples at my website:

FrameMaker ExtendScript Samples - West Street Consulting

These start from the most basic script possible and go into some fairly advanced topics. There is nothing specific about markers and cross-references, but these scripts should give you the basic idea, then you could come back here with more focused questions.

Note that the term "plugin" usually refers to an API client, not a script.

ExtendScript is a very powerful tool. I encourage you to continue this pursuit.
