Thanks @joshuef, for me that’s a no then at least as things stand, but this is a good segway…
Let me describe what lead me to want a plugin. Pretty simple and I think a good case for a plugin, unless you know better
Let’s say I have several SAFE accounts. I use one for X, another for Y etc. so it’s helpful for me to be reminded which one I’m logged into. I can think of other things such a plugin might do, but let’s just say it does this:
- it displays a toolbar button, by default it says “Logged out”, or “Logged in”
- if you click on it (or edit preferences) you can specify a name for the account, and the plugin stores this within the account as part of its app specific data
- when you log into an account, the plugin looks to see if there is a name stored, and if so, displays this on the button as “Logging into ‘name’”
The reason for using a plugin here is so it is available without visiting a URL or having a tab open, by default, unless you know another way
The uses for such a plugin could be more than just storing a name, but I think this illustrates a use case that could be handled by a plugin. Alternatively, this feature could be made part of the SAFE Browser instead, but there will no doubt be other things which won’t ever be built in, and better probably to keep the browser minimalist in general anyway.
