What is this?

All that u c here is a mine set of plugins for Pâté. Latter is a plugin for KDE's Kate editor which allows to write plugins using Python.

Most of this plugins I wrote to help myself writing a C++ code and found them r quite usable. After feedback from my friends (C++ coders too :) I've decided to share them. Anyway if u'd like to make some improvements your changes r welcome... just please share it :)

Also I'm not a Python guru yet, so any performance or other optimizations r welcome as well :) I've just found that writing plugins for Kate is easy enough using Python, so I'm just having fun... :)

U may found a brief plugins description at top of particular .py file.

In a expand/ subdir is a mine set of plugins for Pâté's example plugin called `expand' :) Latter is quite similar to standard snippets shipped with Kate, but thanx to Python is could be much more powerful... So, mostly, I prefer to use Pâté's expand (Ctrl-E).


Of cause u need a Pâté package installed before. Gentoo users may find it in a kde-testing overlay. Owners of other distros (I'm in doubt that corresponding packages exists) may download it from

BTW, recently Pâté plugin was commited into playground/ of the Kate git repo.

How to install

To install Pâté plugins system-wide:

$ cmake . && sudo make install


$ cmake -DINSTALL_TYPE=user . && make install

to install into your home directory. Do not forget to enable the Pâté plugin in Kate settings.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
