Re: [orion-dev] Extending the Editor page.
We have a couple of bugs that touch on this topic.
One general bug discusses putting any view on a page, much like eclipse "Show View."  However this bug was so general we never really have worked on it.
The other bug talks about putting a navigator in the editor . I did an experiment once to see if I could implement a navigator with the outliner API, but that was strictly an experiment and not at all the way we would go about it.
I'd be happy to consult with you. Anton may also have opinions based on the project page work he is doing.
I think the best place for now to discuss would be in the second bug. My advice for a POC would be to copy the editor page and where you currently see us attaching outliner behavior (new Outliner, etc.) to the left hand side pane, instead we would try to come up with a service extension that populates a left hand side. So "Outliner" would be one choice, and you could have your other choices.
There are also security concerns with letting a plugin populate content on the page, so it's possible we would require (in the short term) that the extension point lives on the page rather than obtained from a plugin.
I can help you out with ideas for the service extension API and we can work with Simon on security concerns.
Hopefully this is enough to go on and from there you can ping me in that second bug....

I have started to look on how to integrate eclipse-orion to one of our products as a POC.
I have looked and tried to find the best way to extend the editor page to include another pane on which I can add my own view of my own plug in/service. The outliner on the editor page seems to be oriented towards just jumping to places in the code.
How can I extend the editor today in the way I desire?
Alternatively, if such a way does not exist today I could work on extending the framework so such things would be possible. Who can I consolt with about such a change?
So as I far as I could see today I need to write my own editor page for that. Am I right?
