Creating an RVIZ plugin for a new display type


So for my project I created my own message type and was hoping to have it displayed in RVIZ. It is a slight adaptation of GridCells, but instead of containing a list of Points, it contains a list of a Point message that I created. The custom Point message contains two more pieces of information.

My problem is that the User Guide for RVIZ has told me that there is no API documentation. Is this still true? Is there any way for me to write a plugin? I think using RVIZ to display custom types of messages would make it even more powerful of a tool. Thanks for the help,
