How to customize Plugin Manager to your needs?

UI of NetBeans Plugin Manager (Tools|Plugins in NetBeans6 menu item) was designed for a long time and then tunned a bit to fit all objectives:

  • to be high focused to major use-cases
  • to be understandable
  • simplicity
  • and smoothness of user work flow.

I believe it will meet most of users needs however it couldn't cover any imaginable requirement. On this account there are a few options what might be useful for developers using NetBeans platform. I summarized these possibilities at http://wiki.netbeans.org/FaqPluginManagerCustomization. Such as to make Plugin Manager showing all modules regardless of its visibility flag or to show plugin code name in plugin's details.

Have fun!
