Thanks everyone for your feedback so far. I hope I have picked everything up, either as fix or as TODO item in the code. Please check again if any fix matches your expectations and any TODO item covers your needs.
While there are lots of improvements possible, the current state has worked good enough for me in real world usage. It is now the different kparts which would need to see more work to improve their usage in this preview plugin. So I would like to get the current state of the preview plugin out to people to share the joy of this feature (& to work on improving it :) ) and have a motivation/testing option to also improve the kparts they (would) use.
Given KA 17.12 is still some months away, I am tempted to make some initial stand-alone release of the plugin for now, and have it then merged into the kate repo (or some ktexteditor-addons if people create that). That would also allow/motivate people to fix kparts already now, even if they do not run kate from master.
What do you think?
When it comes to improving kparts, myself I have already adapted kuiviewer part (master branch) and, as reference implementation, uploaded a patch for the SVG kpart in https://phabricator.kde.org/D7580. And there is the Markdown kpart <https://cgit.kde.org/kmarkdownwebview.git/about/>, which was extra created for this, and which is going to see a first release Sept 12th.
