Códice Software: Introducing Plastic SCM's external tools actions

External tool actions have been around since release 6.0.16.1486, thanks to some of you asking for them.

You can create custom actions to run on selected objects such as labels, changesets, branches, and items, and invoke those custom actions directly from Plastic SCM.

External tool actions - Branches

Add custom actions to branches and files

Okay, this is a little bit difficult to understand without an example, so I'm going to teach you how to implement two different actions: one for branches, and one for items. I'll let you tinker around with action for labels and changesets on your own, but it is just as easy. Remember, this feature is available on Windows, macOS, and GNU/Linux, but only in the regular Plastic SCM client, and not in Gluon.

For the action to a branch, I'm going to add a custom action to directly apply an attribute to the branch. This is instead of the alternative of having to navigate to attributes, then selecting the attribute I want to apply, and then looking for the value, which is a real hassle if you do this a lot, like we do.

For the action to an item, I'm going to add a custom action to directly open that item in Visual Studio Code.

Ready? Ok, let's go.
