[Other] execute external programm

Postby yogi » Tue Aug 01, 2017 8:16 pm

Hallo,
there is the editor called notepad++. It has some menue command: execute external programm.
It would be cute to have something similar in CN.
I thought of an edit-window in which the first line (or more lines for several commands) could be the command text to be executed.
The headline should be left empty for naming the command.

In this way one can open directories, start MP3 or videos and even execute python scripts or other programming languages.

I hope this is an inspiration

Kind regards
Yogi

Well you already can put paths to executables into a links field and it'll be executed upon activation - doesn't that fit the bill?
A link to a file can do that as well.
