Plugins

Post by MSpagni » Sun May 20, 2018 1:35 am

I think we already discussed that but bear for me.

In my configuration I have a plugin that operates on archives.
(For the records:
name filters: "*.zip,*.jar,*.war,*.ear,*.har,*.xpi,*.7z,*.gz,*.gzip,*.tgz,*.bz2,*.bzip2,*.tbz2,*.tbz,*.tar,*.lzma,*.rar,*.cab,*.arj,*.z,*.taz,*.cpio,*.lzh,*.lha"
application: "C:\Programmi\ExamDiff Pro\Plug-Ins\7-Zip\7z.exe"
arguments: "l $INPUTFILEPATH -r")

EDP has a standard plugin ("Unzip") for the same file extensions and, as I discovered long ago, if both plugins are enabled they are executed in sequence.
Of course, I disabled the standard plugin.

Every time there is an update of EDP that plugin is reenabled and, more often than not, I forget to disable it until I get a mess in archive comparison.

Suggestion: if a "standard" plugin is already installed but is user disabled, why not update it but leaving it still disabled?

We'll do this in the next build.

if both plugins are enabled they are executed in sequence.
Only today, in need of a sort for a plugin result, I realized that the "sort" plugin is the last one so simply enabling it I'd get what I was looking for!
Very good idea, but one that only now reached my mind.
I'm a bit late, sorry. :roll:

Hmm, I'm not sure how it's related to the change you requested earlier. It still seems a valid feature.

Related to the change I requested earlier? Not at all.
Just for the note that all the relevant and enabled plugins are executed in sequence... and you can specify that sequence!
Very good.
