Description Geertjan Wielenga 2008-05-17 09:02:40 UTC
Would be good to have functionality that lets users browse and install new palettes and palette items on demand.Here is
how I see it: (1) You would create a NetBeans module that contains the snippets that you want to make available, (2) You
would set some kind of special property that marks your module as a "palette provider", (3) You would make your module
available to an update center (4) I would need to have your update center registered within my IDE, (5) I would then
right-click inside my palette and see a list of modules that have the "palette provider" property set, (6) I would then
select the modules I am interested in and these would then be installed, with the items immediately being available
(without a restart).
