If I create a custom plugin for EOS that provides an expanded RPC/API, is it sufficient to install that plugin on my local nodeos instance? Or does it need to be installed on the block producers as well?

1 Answer 1


The plugin will only be accessible to RPC clients which connect to nodes which run the plugin. A common case will be websites connecting to nodes running the plugins needed to support that website.
