Add support for running external tools on selected item(s)
This is an extension of the Custom "Open with" feature, to be able to run external tools/scripts with the selected branch/changeset(s) etc as input arguments.
For inspiration, see the "Tools - External Tools..." implementation in Microsoft Visual Studio. In that dialog, the user can add custom commands to a list that is later displayed in the menu. For each command, you can specify Title, Command Line, Initial Directory and Arguments. For the last two you can use placeholders like $(ProjectDir), $(CurLine) etc. In Plastic we could have placeholders like %wkspace_path, %repo, %selected_changeset etc...
We’re happy to inform you that Plastic SCM now supports adding custom menu entries for many of its views. This new entries will run a command related to the currently selected object. To find out how this works and its many possibilities, please go to the corresponding release notes page: https://www.plasticscm.com/download/releasenotes/184.108.40.2066
Thank you all for your great feedback and support!
