Using Zim as document editor


Hi all,

Best wishes for 2023!

I was wondering... Would it be possible to use Zim as an editor for
documents that are not Zim notes.

For example, when I open a particular document, instead of reading it from
disk Zim would run a plugin or an external tool to fetch the actual
contents. Likewise, when the document is saved, some other plugin/tool is
run to write the contents to disk.

Rationale is that I have quite a few markdown or json documents that I
would love to be able to maintain with a decent tool like Zim.
