I have been trying out Kate lately and I would like to even contribute to it. However, there’s one thing I am having trouble understanding.
The project plugin includes its own tree view for viewing files while there exists another plugin for viewing the file system. Both of these also have features exclusive to one another, in fact, I keep switching from type of viewer to another because some features are just missing from one another. These include limited file operations for the project tree view while the file system view doesn’t have things like Git integration or “Open Terminal Here.”
Keeping these separate makes no sense to me and I want to try and understand why its made like this in the first place before I make contributions related to it. Wouldn’t be better if these two were merged?
