Enable Text Filter plugin by default

Authored by ngraham on Jul 26 2018, 11:08 PM.



The Text Filter plugin is by far one of Kate's most useful and powerful plugins, and when enabled, helps to distinguish Kate from more common text editors and put it in league with the really powerful ones like Sublime Text on Linux and Textmate on macOS.

However, the plugin is disabled by default! Considering that Kate is a power user text editor, I think having it enabled by default is more appropriate. This will improve the feature's discoverability and make Kate even more powerful for its target audience.

Test Plan

Open Kate with a new user account and see that the menu item is enabled under the Tools menu

Ok, let's give it a try. Does this also work on Windows? Or is the plug-in not available there?

The plugin is available, but in the 5 minutes I tried I did not find a windows CLI application that reads the standard input to produce some output... ;)

The output of the command is anyways copied to the document :)
