Custom pluggable viewers for certain data types
Being able to implement custom data viewers/actions for different data types would be a useful feature.Examples:
- Open BAM file with IGV or JBrowse
- Send data files to another REST API (e.g. upload VCF data into a genomics data management platform)

Apart from being able to do these more advanced data viewing operations it would be good to be able to easily configure file extensions that can be just opened in the browser window. There are many small ascii based file formats using all kinds of file extensions.

Custom pluggable viewers are implemented as file's context menu actions that redirect a user to a third party app url with a search param that contains selected file url. Configuration file is used the same way as controlled vocabulary file. See readme.md for details.
