I'd like to request a plugin API. A way to inject objects developed by the community, with access to smart linking, etc.

This would make me able to adapt my own tools for direct use, for example:

It would be a great way to expand the functionality of Realm Works, and personally I have a an assortment of plugins all lined up

"Plugin API" and "Web Client" don't go well together.

Also, people who aren't logged in to Facebook (and, IIRC, aren't members of that group) will not be able to see the thread to which you linked. For those who can't see it, he's adding a dotted path to a map. Drawing tools have been requested in at least a couple of threads. 1 2

This has been requested before. Not going to happen. RW was not built for it.

Although things like image overlays are supposed to possible through the smart image options menu but using that has always been pretty opaque.

+1 for this functionality as slk486 linked. Very cool map tool. Frankly the map handling within RW is sub-par, but something like this would be a very useful add-on.

Actually being able to add information to maps within RW rather than having to go find the original graphic file, edit it, and then reload it into RW would be awesome!

I'd even be happy with the ability to "zoom window" and a button to "open graphic file in external editor".

Thanks Parody. Never understood why anyone who is trying to sell or share something would lock it behind a closed system.

Sorry, I didn't really realize it would be hidden from anyone not on facebook. I've put up a youtube link as well.

Sure, but it could work well with the desktop client and would open up Realm Works, instead of being locked in functionality due to LWDs time and resources.

It's not really about that feature specifically - this is just an example of what plugins could bring and there are plenty more. The ability for people to build tools to work within Realm Works. Btw; this is a smart-overlay, with links to information nodes, not just drawing tools

This is already a thing, and would be pretty easy to twist into a plugin. Why not take advantage of peoples spare time, ideas, and dedication?

@Acenoid:

That's what I want to know as well.
