I have had a chance to use your plugin. It seems that you have created
actions to show and hide the view, but you have not created a UI
definition to enable any menu or toolbar entries. The main UI
definition (which is loaded automatically) should be called the same
name as your plugin and should be in the uidef/ directory of the
plugin. You can see examples in almost all of the other
Another point, which was raised is that you are running the tests
inside pida's python interpreter. While this might be fine in general,
it may pose a serious problem inside pida if it blocks (since gtk main
loop will not be able to run). In general we spawn new Python
interpreters for this kind of thing.
I will continue to add feedback as I use the plugin more.
