Ideas for Plugins
This blueprint is here to discuss different ideas about plugins which might be useful to implement for Diodon:
Be able to execute actions based on the clipboard contents.
static clipboard items:
3 or 4 static entries at the bottom of the clipboard
Clear system clipboard & selection contents but keep history
Pop & Paste:
A nice feature to add to Diodon would be a Pop & Paste feature. Pop & Paste would be a certain hotkey which when pressed would (1) paste the latest item in the clipboard, (2) remove that item from the clipboard, and (3) load the next item from the clipboard if any.
This will allow the user to copy several items to the clipboard in sequence, and then paste the items one after the other in the reverse sequence with just a shortcut key.
Ubuntu One Integration:
Syncing clipboard history with Ubuntu One
Copy clipboard content to paste bin:
An action to quickly paste clipboard content to http://
Paste simple text:
When issue #871319 is implemented there would be a need to only paste plain text
Option to edit copied text before paste.
Numbering of items:
Adding a number in front of any clipboard item to get a better sense of order
Remove single clipboard item:
Possibility to remove a specific clipboard item

[belkinsa] Saved Clipboard Items- maybe have those linked to the static items in case for a user wanting a longer list of static items. Or have two drop down menus; one for normal clipboard and one from the static/saved item one.
[anubeon] You should definitely have a look at Glippy's snippets feature. They implement them as a drop-out menu at the bottom of the main indicator menu. Personally, I'd prefer it is they'd place them higher up, perhaps even above the clipboard entries (i.e. as the first entry), but a drop-out definitely seems better than in-line, as in-line limits the number of snippets (or static items as you've called them). Perhaps a hybrid would be better? Specifically an inline list of 3/4 snippets, below the dynamic clipboard items, visually distinguised with a separator and with any overflow (more than 3/4 snippets) held in a drop-out menu.
Also, Glippy's snippets are editable, I would hope that this would be the case with any Diodon implementation of static items.
