Do

Platform Independant Plugins

Registered by ootz0rz on 2009-06-30

A lot of the plugins currently rely in using do.platform.linux or do.interface.linux, with the proposed changes to make the core platform independant and the addition of windows code and such - the plugins should be able to function by simply importing do.platform and then our platform code can load the linux/windows specific code as it needs to. Unless the plugins are linux/windows specific, the code shouldn't need to know about the specific platform (for example, the google search plugin works perfectly by changing do.platform.linux references to *.windows). It then also seems that there should be a way to tag or specify if a plugin is linux only, windows only, etc... i.e. what the plugin requires to run
