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.
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.
