rss reader plugin
« on: March 23, 2011, 11:45:48 pm »
Hi, i was installing visual studio, no don´t worry i´m not changing ide ( i actually think it sucks), and i noticed that it had an rss feed reader and said "hey, Code::Blocks doesn´t have one of those" so here are the results
  
    * Name: Rss::Blocks
    * Author: Gabriel Espinoza
    * Purpose: This plugin will take control not only over Code::Blocks but also over the world and also can read rss feeds.
    * Version: 0.1; State: beta
    * Last update: 22. Mar. 2011
    * Link for download: http://sourceforge.net/projects/rssblocks/

Or the C::B world if there was a C::B news thread/feed...

But this is the first thing I disable in VStudio >= 2005 :)
(most of the time I ignore long posts)

Well, sometimes reading news can be addictive and makes me delayed

It would be very cool if there where some way that plugins could modify the "start here" page :?

No need for that, you can create your own custom page, as many others plugins did. We don't want to clutter the start here page. It belongs to the core, not the plugins.

You can capture the cbEVT_APP_STARTUP_DONE and/or the cbEVT_WORKSPACE_CHANGED events to introduce your own "Today's News" page in addition to the default start page, if you like.
