Manila Plugins

I’ve been writing a lot of plugins recently, some for work, some for scratching an itch. (See “Esoteric Settings” and “PicsPicker” for the publically availiable ones, hopefully a couple more to follow soon)

I’m amazed at how easy it is to put them together. Run the plugin factory, write your handlers and bits and pieces, and it’s there. I got the core functionality of one running in a couple of hours today. The interface is described almost entirely by xml. The back end is almost all xml-rpc requests to another machine.

Of course, bringing the plugin to production status is another matter; as with all progamming, the devil is in the details.
