Plugin architecture feature request: show me which plugins are slowing down the app
Visual Studio 2019 has this nice feature where you can open up a “performance manager” or whatever it’s called and it will tell you if any plugins are causing the app to slow down. Something like that would be really nice for NP++ as well - I installed a bunch of plugins and now it takes a while to load, even on an SSD, and I don’t want to play the guessing game trying to figure out which ones are slowing it down.
So I think this is asking for a bit too much…
I’d rather the developers spend their precious time on really useful things that are more closely related to text editing features.
However, if you really want to request it, you need to do so by the official process. See HERE for those details.
But you can actually build Notepad++ and start a debugging session from a Visual Studio.
This will allow you to use “Diagnostic Tools” to monitor the performance.
I see this as the easiest option.
