I post new plugin to plugin repository. Main purpose of this plugin - is
provide to plugin developers some light (small, not complex, not hard to
implement, fast) sharable utility services.
The same idea used for many aplications, for example Miranda IM, have
plugin - ToolTip - it can't be used standalone, but other plugins used it to
The main unit of PLUS - is Service. You can get any registered services from
PLUS for your plugin tasks. Also PLUS have extension API, so you can add
your own services to it.
So, now PLUS have two services:
1. PluginDescriptor service, that can be used by your plugin for reading
information from plugin.xml descriptor.
2. AboutPlugin service, that can be used to simple fast creation of About
JOptionPane action (AnAction). For example you can get AnAction for your
plugin from this service ant attach it to any places as you want.
I think this plugin will help to developer, and any ideas and suggestion are
always welcome! Let's share your "fine light service" to PLUS! ;)
