Description

This plugins allows adding custom property editors to EditorInspector.

Plugins are registered via EditorPlugin.add_inspector_plugin.

When an object is edited, the can_handle function is called and must return true if the object type is supported.

If supported, the function parse_begin will be called, allowing to place custom controls at the beginning of the class.

Subsequently, the parse_category and parse_property are called for every category and property. They offer the ability to add custom controls to the inspector too.

Finally parse_end will be called.

On each of these calls, the “add” functions can be called.
