Admittedly this is because of the seen potential and not long term usage just yet. However, this plugin is the plugin-maker for "the rest of us". I do have to learn Ruby but that is less of an issue than learning a complete plugin development workflow. Also it's simplified a bit because I come from Textmate which has a ton of sample code to be used in similar ways. PMIP then allows me to begin to do Textmate like extensions. That in and of itself is a great addition. This makes it trivial to pipe selected text through external commands and all that's available via the commandline. I haven't yet figured out how to replace the currently selected text with output from a PMIP script but I can get it in clipboard automatically so it's still a simple process.

I do recommend this plugin.
You can use rubygems, please see the FAQ:
