Padre::PluginManager - Padre plug-in manager
The "PluginManager" class contains logic for locating and loading Padre plug-ins, as well as providing part of the interface to plug-in writers.
"new" The constructor returns a new "Padre::PluginManager" object, but you should normally access it via the main Padre object: my $manager = Padre->ide->plugin_manager; First argument should be a Padre object. "parent" Stores a reference back to the parent IDE object. "plugin_dir" Returns the user plug-in directory (below the Padre configuration directory). This directory was added to the @INC module search path. "plugins" Returns a hash (reference) of plug-in names associated with a Padre::PluginHandle. This hash is only populated after "load_plugins()" was called. "plugins_with_context_menu" Returns a hash (reference) with the names of all plug-ins as keys which define a hook for the context menu. See Padre::Plugin. current Gets a Padre::Current context for the plugin manager. "main" A convenience method to get to the main window. "load_plugins" Scans for new plug-ins in the user plug-in directory, in @INC, and in .par files in the user plug-in directory. Loads any given module only once, i.e. does not refresh if the plug-in has changed while Padre was running. "reload_plugins" For all registered plug-ins, unload them if they were loaded and then reload them. "alert_new" The "alert_new" method is called by the main window post-initialisation and checks for new plug-ins. If any are found, it presents a message to the user. "failed" Returns the plug-in names (without "Padre::Plugin::" prefixed) of all plug-ins that the editor attempted to load but failed. Note that after a failed attempt, the plug-in is usually disabled in the configuration and not loaded again when the editor is restarted. "load_plugin" Given a plug-in name such as "Foo" (the part after "Padre::Plugin"), load the corresponding module, enable the plug-in and update the Plug-ins menu, etc. "unload_plugin" Given a plug-in name such as "Foo" (the part after "Padre::Plugin"), disable the plug-in, unload the corresponding module, and update the Plug-ins menu, etc. "reload_plugin" Reload a single plug-in whose name (without "Padre::Plugin::") is passed in as first argument. "plugin_db" Given a plug-in name or namespace, returns a hash reference which corresponds to the configuration section in the Padre database of that plug-in. Any modifications of that hash reference will, on normal exit, be serialized and written back to the database file. If the plug-in name is omitted and this method is called from a plug-in namespace, the plug-in name is determine automatically. "reload_current_plugin" When developing a plug-in one usually edits the files belonging to the plug-in (The "Padre::Plugin::Wonder" itself or "Padre::Documents::Wonder" located in the same project as the plug-in itself. This call and the appropriate menu option should be able to load (or reload) that plug-in. "on_context_menu" Called by "Padre::Wx::Editor" when a context menu is about to be displayed. The method calls the context menu hooks in all plug-ins that have one for plug-in specific manipulation of the context menu.
