Discussion areas for the plugins?

I was thinking, might it be beneficial to have a discussion area to the specific plugins? (Here i mean for VIM, Visual Studio etc.)...

Since i don't feel that these discussions would be about the "Language", but instead bringing ideas on what we would like to have automated or have settings for in these tools.

But I am not sure that there would be enough discussion emphasized around that.

Discussions might be a good place to exchange tips and tricks. 

For feature requests, a better place is probably the issue tracker.  That way the suggestion can be more easily moved to someone who will see it, and we could track discussions about each feature.

Hi,

I was actually thinking of writing a plugin to any light editor (notepad++ etc) including the intellisense. The motivation is simple. Visual studio is huge and slow on old machines... But I find it very difficult to write a plugin without knowing how to. Do you plan to write a small article on the basic stuff of the typescript language service? That would help a lot in developing any plugins for other IDEs.

BTW: Is there anybody already working on a plugin for any IDE?

I started a notepad ++ plugin project. you can find it here: https://github.com/hansrwindhoff/nppPluginTypescript.git

does compile on save and runs js in nodejs

If someone wants to put intelli-sense in, that would be great!
