About Open Source

Most open source software is free of charge and that’s a good thing! But that does not mean, that there are no costs for someone else to create, support and maintain it.

So if you use it: Support it!

Have fun!

PS: The Bundler Plugin works well with the: [INTRO] Bundler-plugin allows you to create "export/import" configurations and save them as a bundle

Excellent little plugin Mario. Love the simple UI.

Couple of things…

  1. Would be a good idea to clear the caption field after the save search button is clicked? It’s kind of easy to overwrite a saved search if one isn’t paying attention.

  2. A quick/simple way to export/copy the saved search tabs to a different wiki? Or, in the interim, a bundle/filter to achieve the same thing?

Very neat. Saving searches can be a great timesaver!
If I could improve one thing, it would be to add tooltips to the icons.

Have a nice day

Thanks for the feedback. … Both of you.

I did create 3 new issues, so the ideas are not forgotten.

While working to improve the bundler I was also thinking about this: [Idea] Make it easy to work together with the bundler-plugin · Issue #134 · wikilabs/plugins · GitHub .
