Is it possible to allow users to use python or coffee to extend on our own plugins.  For example if I have a sphere in the scene, could I allow users to add scripting commands to a dialog and have the sphere respond based on what they wrote?
 
Thanks in advance.

I am not sure, if I understood your question right, maybe the MessagePlugin class is what you search. 🙂

I mean I want to write a plugin that can ultimately be enhanced through python or coffee..  meaning I want users to be able to write scripts that add new functionality to my plugin.  Is this possible?

It should be possible through the COFFEE library although I have never tried myself. I don't know about Python though. I will see if I can get some more information.
