Custom tools

Recommended Posts

I didn't go real in-depth while looking at the process for initializing and loading tools, but something that might be useful would be to allow the loading of custom tools created by other developers. At the very least, it would make new tool requests easy to fill as the main assembly wouldn't have to be recompiled.

We don't support Tool plugins because right now they are tightly integrated with the rest of the main application. We would have to put the entire application into an external DLL. And once you make something extensible you basically have to freeze the API, something I'm not willing to do.
