Just for my interest, what do you want to do?
Say geany is installed via some distribution package mechanism, apt, rpm, whatever and the system admin can make locally compiled plugins available for all users in a "local" place, maybe under /usr/local/lib/geany.
We surely can add support for reading other directories as well. The question is probably just how to realise it best. I think of an environment variable like GEAY_PLUGIN_PATH or a command line switch. Or even a hidden preference, which is maybe the most easy one to use.
Thanks, hope that it's not too much work. I don't mind either, as long as it's documented.
Maybe it'd most convenient if there's a button under in the Tools | Plugin Manager pop-up window that a user can click to set them up, similar to, for example, what firefox does when you do a "save-as". The values can be stored in ~/.config/geany/geany.conf and the user can enter them directly or edit them, with geany of course, :-) if he/she would like to.
Thanks again, ST --
