I was thinking it can be a good idea to make the app more modular. Then everyone can add custom menu options and new functions to MiXplorer. What do you think?
Maybe I'm wrong, but I understood it as only Hootan doing it, not anybody else creating anything, just like the add-ons now.
If that's the case, I totally approve it.
If this is about just giving people the ability to configure menus to reflect the components they have installed then I'd call myself a hesitant maybe, (which is more hesitant than regular hesitant and more maybe than regular maybe).
One thing that makes MiX impressive and unique is how well all the components are stitched together and how efficiently, (even if not always intuitively) the UI offers much functionality and configuration options... all IMO products of HootanParsa's methods and style of work.
This leaves me asking some fundamental questions about such a proposed feature
What is the purpose of such a thing? What would it achieve that the current add-on model and configuration options don't offer?
What are the potential downsides of having what are effectively different varients of MiX on different devices? Would there be any negative impacts on level of distribution and average user contentment with MiX.
