Hey guys,

As I see it, the whole Deled redesign got scrapped, so I though about a way to make extending Deled more accessible.
The idea is to make Deled extensible using Lua. When the user runs this plugin a new window will appear.
This window will contain a list of buttons where each button is a (scripted) plugin. Once the user clicked on a button,
a GUI for this specific plugin will appear at the bottom of this window. A plugin using this way will need to have two Lua files.
One which will actually perform the plugin's job using some convenient interface between Deled and Lua.
The other will define the GUI for the plugin, something along: {{"Factor","FloatInput"}, {"Selected Only",{BooleanInput}}.
The GUI for this example will have a text box to enter the value for "Factor" and a checkbox for "Selected Only".
Then when the plugin is called it will receive a list containing {"Factor","Selected Only"} and the values for each one as entered by the user.
My questions to you is, first, if this is possible using the current plugin architecture of Deled( I guess it is) and second, how much interest
would you guys have in such a thing / think others will find it useful.

Thanks.

Very nice initiative! But I wonder... has this been done before by a DeleD user called Il Buzzo?

I think it was started on, but never made fully avaliable. Think a lot of the code still in repository.
