In QGIS, it is very easy to do batch processing like this but how do you do run a batch process for a custom plugin?

More detail:

I have a number of point shapefiles and want to convert them to lines using the Points2One tool and want to set up a batch process to run the plugin for each of my shapefiles (>100) in a given directory.

Is there a way to do this?

There are two possible tools in the toolbox, v.to.lines (GRASS) and convert points to line(s) (SAGA). Have you tried these? If so, what are they lacking?

Some plugins like Quick OSM can be incorporated into a graphical model, which in turn can be run as a batch process, maybe your tool shows up there, too.
