Show and Tell #6 - Setting up MEF

Setting up MEF

Ben posted yesterday about setting up MEF with the goal of adding plugins to a simple application. It touches on splitting the plugin API from the application code, including two-way communication between the application and the plugin. This method will possibly be used to implement plugin support in MarkPad.

The project created for the post is available on GitHub.
