Status of the Plugin System

While even at this early stage, the Zellij plugin system offers powerful capabilities to plugin developers and users alike, there are a few key missing features that are all currently being addressed. This page lists the major ones:

  1. Filesystem access is not very fast
  2. Plugins cannot be loaded from the web and so their distribution is not trivial
  3. Plugins cannot communicate with each other
  4. Plugin commands are asynchronous and provide no success/failure indication
  5. More plugin APIs
