      Try out and improve plugins

      Try out one of the many plugins listed here:
      http://padre.perlide.org/trac/wiki/Plugins
      Update the info in this table.

      If you encounter problems, file tickets for them, or get help from IRC to fix the problem yourself.

      Some plugins still lack features, and implementing can be a bit easier than adding new features to the Padre core!

        Include URLs if relevant (we'll automatically linkify them).

      Moving language settings from menu to the preferences dialog.

      Here is the bug report:
      http://padre.perlide.org/trac/ticket/741

      This should not be too hard, and dealing with the issue will expose you to some aspects of the Padre codebase, e.g. the menu system, message localization, and the preferences dialog.

      If you need some hints, ask for assistance on IRC or the mailing list.

      Support $1, $2, etc. for regex search and replace

      http://padre.perlide.org/trac/ticket/995

      If you know Perl regular expressions and the s/// operator, this functionality should be obvious for you.

      If you need a hint where to start, ask for assistance on IRC or the mailing list.

      CPAN Installer is incomplete

      http://padre.perlide.org/trac/ticket/1045

      The first two parts of the bugs would be some small enhancements to the modules Padre::Wx::CPAN::Listview, Padre::Wx::CPAN, and Padre::CPAN.

      The third part would be capturing CPAN's textual output and presenting it to the Padre user.

      • Tip:

        Many projects have good small tasks that can teach newcomers how the project works. Now's your chance to share one of them!

        Include URLs if relevant (we'll automatically linkify them).

      • Example:

        Someone could improve the photo upload dialog box so that it lets you resize the photo before sending it to the web.

  • Q: What is a bug or issue with Padre that you've been putting off, neglecting, or just plain avoiding?

    • [X]
      • Examples:

        I don't know how to get started with internationalizing my app.

        Bug 392 about printing was filed five years ago, and I don't even know if printing still works.

        I want help from a C coder writing a Maildir patch for Alpine.

      • Note:

        If this issue was formally filed on the web, be sure to include the URL.
