I’d like to create a plugin that integrates a separate user interface with a topic. This is what I’m thinking:
So the topic would be as normal, except each post can have a separate, but linked, interface. If a post has a linked interface, it needs to be displayed in line with the post, and the following posts would be pushed down.
In my use case, the interface would allow the user to produce simple graphs, to complement the text in their post. The data would be stored with the post (similar to the polls plugin?). In fact, the whole thing would be similar to the polls plugin, if the poll were off to the side rather than inline in the post.
Is such a thing possible in a Discourse plugin?
I guess the main issue would be extending the UI?
Any questions or thoughts are appreciated!
