Is "Extensibility" meant for discussing prospective plugins?


(Erlend Sogge Heggen) #1

Description of Feature category:

Discussion about features or potential features of Discourse: how they work, why they work, etc.

Description of Extensibility category:

Topics about extending the functionality of Discourse with plugins, themes, add-ons, or other mechanisms for extensibility.

Scenario 1

I have this great new feature idea for Discourse, but I’m proposing it as something that should be made as a plugin because I have no desire to see it added to core, ever.

Where should I post?

Scenario 2

I have posted to the Feature category about a suggested new core feature for Discourse but the general consensus of the thread is that this feature should exist as a plugin.

Should the thread be moved?

I think either place is fine. Extensibility is more of a dev topic to me, with specifics about implementation.
