Welcome to the Notepad++ & Plugin Development category
This category is for:
- specific source code questions
- build-specific questions (for those that are trying to build from source but are stuck on something)
- plugin development - how to interface with Notepad++ through the Plugin Communication interface
This category is not for:
- Notepad++ feature requests: see our FAQ
- Generic programming questions:
- If you are new to a specific programming language, there are plenty of other places on the web to learn and ask general programming questions.
- If you are a long-time Notepad++ plugin contributor, but still find yourself having difficulty with a non-Notepad++-specific portion of developing your plugin, it’s still better for it to go in some forum better equipped to handle Win32 API questions or similar.
- Discussions here should be focused on the concepts that are specifically related to Notepad++ itself, and interfacing between Notepad++ and your plugin, rather than on specifics about Win32 API or non-Notepad++-specific libraries.
- Plugin feature requests or bug reports aren’t specifically banned here, as some of the plugin authors do frequent this Category. However, there is no guarantee that an author will notice or track such reports in this Forum, and it is highly encouraged that you report them through the plugin project’s repository bug/feature tracking system to ensure that the right people see them; regulars here are likely to push you to do that if you don’t include a link to your issue when you make your post.
