i see a lot of people on here wanting a plugin architecture for mastodon or mastodon-alikes. what do y'all _actually_ want out of that? like, which things do you want to be able to implement and how?

i'm interested because i've been thinking about how to do this in #rustodon, and that's highly dependent on what applications people care about


@er1n modular overrides, mostly. i'm thinking of something like koken's plugin system where you can install something like photoswipe as the lightbox, or add bits of code into certain places, or load web fonts, or convert spotify/rdio urls into rich embeds, etc etc

in general, a plugin system should allow people to share snippets of code to make the experience better. consider: markdown, rich text editing, theming, and basically any longstanding PR/request in mastodon's github
