Extending Orion

Session Type: 
Tutorial [3 hours]

Orion is an open tool integration platform for writing browser-based development tools. In this tutorial you will learn how to extend the Orion platform by integrating other web pages and services into the Orion development workflow. Close integration is achieved through writing Orion plugins to extend the platform with additional capabilities. We will walk through the process from a simple first plugin, up to a plugin that extends Orion in a variety of way: adding links to other pages, new language tools, and even a brief foray into connecting Orion with remote file systems.

Requirements: Orion's only prerequisite is a modern web browser. Bring a device that has a web browser and ideally a keyboard, and you should be all set. We recommend you arrive with a basic understanding of JavaScript, HTML, and CSS programming.
