Discussion for implementing an internal extension browser and installer.

User Overview

The idea is to create a means for users to browse and install assets for GIMP from within GIMP.

A user will be able to invoke a new GUI window for browsing available assets.

Assets can be:

  • Interpreted/dynamic scripting language plugins
    • Script-Fu
    • Python
  • Brushes
  • Dynamics
  • Patterns
  • Palettes
  • Gradients
  • Fonts
  • Tool Presets
  • MyPaint bruses
  • Themes
  • Icon Themes

Not all of these may be supported initially.

A user will be able to install (uninstall?) any of the assets from this GUI.


The user will interact with the system through a new GUI.
