[Plugin] ThomThom's Menu

[Plugin] ThomThom's Menu

Postby thomthom » Sun May 09, 2010 2:41 pm

Some plugin users like to organize plugins by author. To address this I have made this little optional plugin which users of my plugins can install.

When installed, my plugins that support this, will put their menus into Plugins -> ThomThom's Plugins.

My existing plugins will need to be updated in order to support this feature, but I hope to get around to do so.

Hurry! :thumb:
Yes all plugs must be listed by Plugins/Author! :enlight:
That is mnemonic trick and save many place on the menu plugins!

I personally don't like the Group by Author system - so I opted for a user choice system. In theory other systems can be made.
From now on my plugins will look for a variable $tt_menu which it will attach to if present. If not present it will use the default Tools, Plugins or whatever top menu I choose.

Thanks for this Thom. I do like the Group by Author system - when it's got a TT stamp (or a TIG, Chris Fulmer, Fredo etc. stamp on it, there is some guarantee of quality!)

Ideally, a menu that could be sorted on the fly in the manner of a booklist - by author, purpose, date etc would be useful especially if it could load/unload plugins as needed..

This is kinda like an idea I had a couple months ago (but not savvy enough with Ruby yet to try out) --> create an generic_menu.rb which passes in menu variables. Add this (require generic_menu.rb) to any existing plugin (yours or other peoples), then comment out the original plugin's menu. Now call the other script and send over the plugins menu commands and how you'd like to group it (submenu or even a separator).

For example, 5 different plugins from all places on the web. Re-route them where ever you like:

plugins
... Frequent
...... FredoScale
...... Mover2
... Utility
...... Weld
...... Cleanup
... SketchyPhysics2

You'd have to tweak existing plugins, but it'd only use one external script to do the routing. It could be expanded to also influence context menu options or even toolbar or cursor options.

What page?

(p.s. I moved the posts in regard to the TT_Lib to that thread: viewtopic.php?f=323&t=23307 )

He's speaking of the menu page. His menu is so large that it's scrollable, and your submenu appears near the bottom.

You (ThomThom or user) need to rename the script that creates the TT submenu to have a '!' as the first character:
tt_menu.rb rename to !tt_menu.rb
and then it will load as one of the first files from the plugins folder.

    Edson,
    Only a few of my plugin supports this at the moment.
    The one that does will add themselves to this menu under the Website and SketchUcation links.

    If you don't have any of my plugins that support this then it'll be empty.

    This helps me because I sometimes can't remember the name of a tool but I know who made it...
