An ABI file may also be a plug-in used by the Mac version of AbiSource AbiWord, an open-source word processor. It stores code that adds features to AbiWord, such as a thesaurus or support for opening additional file formats.
AbiWord is a word processor for Windows, macOS, and Linux. However, beginning with the release of version 3, the AbiSource community only develops the Linux version.
While AbiWord comes with various word-processing features, plug-ins allow you to customize the program by adding functionality not delivered with the original package. For example, you can install an AbiWord plug-in to open .SVG graphics or export a document to the .PDF format.
How to open an ABI file
You can open an ABI file with the Mac version of AbiSource AbiWord (version 2.4 and earlier). However, AbiSource no longer develops AbiWord for Mac.
