Extended Drag & Drop Support - DragBase integration into NP++ (prototype available)



  • Hello,

    some years ago, I developed http://dragbase.com as a little hobby project. Dragbase is a library that integrates a little icon to an application and this icon then provides drag&drop functionality.

    I am also a Professor at Trinity College Dublin, and a few students of mine integrated Dragbase into Notepad++. With this modified version, NP++ gets an icon that allows saving a new file via drag&drop, or drag&drop of a file being opened in NP++ to other applications.

    I do not have the time to continue the development or to make a proper plugin for NP++ out of this. However, if anyone in this forum would be interested in continuing the work of my students, I would be very glad to give you access to the source code (under whatever license you want).

    You can download a compiled demo (Windows) of NP++ with Dragbase integration here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/kqqbzlka3eojfrt/Dragbase Installer.zip?dl=0
    You can watch a general video about Gragbase here: http://dragbase.com

    Feel free to contact me via email if you have questions https://www.scss.tcd.ie/joeran.beel/contact/ or here in the forum.

    Best,
    Joeran
