Hi there!
While I cannot provide you documentation I can give you a link to a test 
plugin of mine.
Please do note that it's partially based on code that's not in the 
upstream repo YET, so you WILL NOT be able to just compile it.
However it's short enough code to study how plugins can be initialized, 
and used since basically it just gets loaded and creates a so called 

Just ignore widget.h and widget.cpp, the rest of the code will apply to 
practically any plugin.
