This example shows how to add a custom section to the Inspector panel.

from vanilla import TextEditor
from mojo.subscriber import Subscriber


class CustomInspectorToolbarExample(Subscriber):

    debug = True

    def build(self):
        self.editor = TextEditor((10, 10, -10, -0))

    def roboFontWantsInspectorViews(self, info):
        # create an inspector item
        item = dict(label="My Custom View", view=self.editor)
        # insert or append the item to the list of inspector panes
        info["viewDescriptions"].insert(0, item)

    def glyphEditorWantsToolbarItems(self, info):
        # create a toolbar item
        item = dict(itemIdentifier="customGlyphToolbar",
                    label="Do It",
                    callback=self.itemCallback,
                    imageNamed="toolbarRun")
        # insert or append the item to the list of glyph window toolbar items
        info["itemDescriptions"].insert(-2, item)

    def fontDocumentWantsToolbarItems(self, info):
        # create a toolbar item
        item = dict(itemIdentifier="customFontToolbar",
                    label="Do It",
                    callback=self.itemCallback,
                    imageNamed="toolbarRun")
        # insert or append the item to the list of font window toolbar items
        info["itemDescriptions"].insert(2, item)

    def itemCallback(self, sender):
        print("callback!")
