Help Sun and Mozilla with new 'Pluglet' API Spec

Tuesday August 3rd, 1999

Akhil Arora of Sun writes,

"Help define the Pluglet API

A Pluglet is a Plugin that is written in Java. A draft of the Pluglet API specification has been posted here. We would like Plugin writers to get involved in defining the API. Does it meet your needs? What additional feature would you like added to it? What pet peeve of yours would you like fixed? Please talkback at the netscape.public.mozilla.java newsgroup [at news.mozilla.org] or the mozilla-java@mozilla.org mailing list."


#22 Plugins for Editor too ...

So one could add some cool features to the Editor like drag and drop widgets for adding form elements to a page so drop-down and scroll widgets could be right-clicked in the Editor to produce "inspector panels" where one could fill in some dialogs for adding queries to database backends etc.

Maybe composer and mail reader plugins too for mail sorting, interfaces for taking advantage of ezlm qmail maildir stuff etc.

If they are extensible there's no reason an Editor and mail/news reader couldn't be as good as Emacs/Gnus ...
