Because thats not a use-case for an IDE. If you want to work one a
single file, you should use an editor+shell, I don't see a single reason
to fire up a fully bloated IDE for something like that.

Apart from that there's no API for doing this and I don't like the
projectmanagerview do execution of arbitrary commands.

Its simply not how KDevelop4 is designed.


You recoil from the crude; you tend naturally toward the exquisite.
