Hi Alexey,
Glad to see you are trying yourself at www plugin!

www plugins are configured in c['www']

when you say
c['www'] = {
'plugins': {
'myplugins': True
You can also say
c['www'] = {
'plugins': {
'myplugin': {'config1: 'foo', 'config2': 'bar'}
this dictionary will then be automatically passed via the 'config'
angularJS constant.

buildbot_travis was using this feature in its first implementation (now it
is using a custom REST api in order to implement authz)
