Description

I am a bit puzzled as to why you did not just add the Toolbar Configurator to CKBuilder instead of making it another app for devs to install, configure, and manage on our servers.

CKBuilder will know what plug-ins I intend to install so it would be easy to send that info to a Toolbar Config tool on your server. Plus, when I do the download, it could come already configured with the toolbar set up I really want from the start.

After I install CKE, I should just have a way to send the current toolbar/plug-ins config to the online Toolbar Config tool. A link w/ encoded query parameters in the About plug-in dialog (or elsewhere...) should be able to do the trick to call the Toolbar Config tool with my current Toolbar config. (or create a different way to make a link accessible)

CKBuilder has no idea what buttons these plugins expose and under what conditions. The only way to learn about that is to run the package and that's what the Toolbar Configurator does right now - it loads editors in the background.

This isn't optimum of course and if we'd be designing it from scratch we would definitely decide that plugins must declare what plugins they expose. Unfortunately it's too late for that in 4.x, but we've been already thinking how to fix this in 5.x.

So, I consider your idea 100% valid, but pretty undoable in 4.x taking its advanced age.
