  • Type changed from enhancement to project-idea

I'd like to promote this to a gSoC idea.

In my idea, plugins will be used to implement complex dashboards, and have them selected manually by use at config time.

all pages including:

  • waterfall
  • console view
  • grid view

may be reimplemented using plugins.

Part of this flexibility require improvements in the top menu directive. This directive would allow people to configure the order of pages, and regroup pages in sub menus.

This bug itself can't be a GSoC project - projects must be about more than documentation. I think you want #2460, and I'll add a new bug linked to that one with the content of comment 2.

  • Summary changed from [nine] Document Plugins to Document Plugins
  • Type changed from project-idea to enhancement

I propose to re-scope this ticket to create an example plugin (or plugins) that could be used as an example for prospective plugin developers.

The documentation was created as part of #2460.

Documentation by example is good, but needs actual *documentation* too, otherwise people will over- or under-generalize from the example.

comment:6 Changed 4 years ago by dustin

I said that without having read the docs you mentioned, which are quite good!
