I want to write a build plugin that accesses the Netlify API during
onInit. At the moment I am relying on the user providing a
NETLIFY_AUTH_TOKEN environment variable to get API access.
Then I read https://github.com/netlify/js-client/issues/86
For example, Build plugins perform logic on behalf of the user. They receive an instance of the API client with the user’s access token.
Is this true? Do I already have some way to get an API client in my plugin? I didn’t see it documented anywhere.
