This Official-API Patch PlugIn allows other Official-API plugins to have subpatches by unlocking Subpatch support for Official-API Quartz Composer Plugins. To use this in your Official-API plugins, simply add a +(BOOL)allowsSubpatches method that returns YES to allow subpatches in your patch.
Frustrated with the tedium of going through all the Xcode project files in a text editor and manually replacing all of the identifiers and filenames when creating a new Quartz Composer Patch, we created a new Xcode template for custom Quartz Composer patches.
To make a Quartz Composer Patch, now all you need to do is:
1. Create a new Xcode project with this template
2. Give the project a name
3. Build the project
4. Move the .plugin file into /Library/Graphics/Patches/ — The template does this for you now.
5. Launch Quartz Composer
And, of course, modify the code, if you want to do something other than nothing.

This plugin allows the user to set up e-mail reminders of events.
In our case, we're using this feature in conjunction with our task-tracking system to send reminder emails about tasks at defined increments of time away from the task's due date. The reminder emails tell the user when a task is due in two weeks, one week, two days, tomorrow, today, or overdue. After the task becomes overdue, the reminders come once a day until it is marked complete.
But this plugin can also be used on its own to set up any necessary e-mail reminders, for example, to remind users of birthdays.
This little modification parses metadata on comments in the comment log, and makes more readable comments with that information. Comments are separated by day, with a header displaying the date before the first comment of each day.
Comments are also separated by user and time, so if one user posts a few comments in rapid succession and another user responds in a similar manner, the comments will be grouped by user into paragraphs. This turns long comment logs into easily readable dialogues, facilitating natural, fluid conversations over TWiki.
Last but not least, the comments formatting also recognizes when a colon appears at the end of a comment, and indents the following comment one level.
