I'm trying extend the Now Button
<https://github.com/Osndok/zim-plugin-nowbutton/blob/master/nowbutton.py>
plugin to use the same path the journal plugin uses by calling
path_from_date.

I haven't figured out how to respect/load the granularity setting from
preferences.conf. I am trying to explicitly set it using PluginManager or
ConfigManager. Neither with success

# get cal plug object a la tests/calendar.py
calplugklass = PluginManager.get_plugin_class('calendar')
calplug = calplugklass()

prefs=calplug.config.get_config_dict('<profile>/preferences.conf')
# ConfigManagerINIConfigFile w/ only with key as "CalendarPlugin", has
default plugin vals (e.g. path=:Journal)

# OR #

prefs=zim.config.ConfigManager().get_config_dict('<profile>/preferences.conf')
# ConfigManagerINIConfigFile has all sections of prefs.conf as keys,
but ConfigDict's are all empty



# want to set the cal props like
calplug.preferences = prefs['CalendarPlugin']
# so granularity respected by the calendar plugin is reflected here too
cur_date_page = calplug.path_from_date(...)

In the first pluginmanger attempt, the default values are seen not the
values in my preferences.conf
in the second attempt with configmanger, I see all the sections in my .conf
(included a bogus [FooBar] section) but all the dictionaries are empty.


I think I am missing something obvious. Any hints?


As an aside, what is the best way to debug zim plugins? Currently, I make a
change, sprinkling in raise Exception(prefs) and restart zim.


Thanks!
Will
