NAME

Perl::Editor - The Perl Refactoring Editor API

DESCRIPTION

With the creation of PPI it became possible to do parsing, refactoring, and other tasks to Perl source code. Rather than requiring each editor to reimplement every single task all over again, they can instead implement an interface to Perl::Editor.

Perl::Editor is intended to provide a single API that will allow editor-related functions to be written once, as a Perl::Editor::Plugin class, and then be installed and used with any editor that acts as a Perl::Editor host.

It is also intended to make it much easier to let you write your own editor plugins, and then use it with whatever your favourite editor happens to be!

STATUS

This version is intended as a statement of intent (and to lock off the namespace. It's mine dammit! MINE!!!)

However, work is underway on a demonstration editor and commands, based on the Proton CE editor.

A demonstration will be released at OSCON and available online shortly after.

WRITING A PLUGIN

We'll get back to you on that.

MAKING YOUR EDITOR COMPATIBLE

Yeah, that too. :)

TO DO

Pretty much everything. Stay tuned.
