Please consult the Wireshark Developer Manual for all steps needed to
setup your (plugin) development environment. You can find it in the
documentation and developer section of the Wireshark website.

Currently there is no way to setup a plugin development environment only.
This is due to that fact that the plugin API isn't stable yet, hence all
plugins must be build and used within the same context as the version of
Wireshark you intend to use.
