You may get better answers by asking this on stack overflow or the ubuntu forums programming talk. I do however believe this question is within the scope of this site as Gedit is a deault application on Ubuntu. – dv3500ea Oct 25 '10 at 10:33
in the irc chanel there is a gedit chanel you can ask there better – hhlp Oct 25 '10 at 12:04
when i contact the channel it say "connection refused" – Aboelnour Oct 25 '10 at 12:35

Maybe you can start from the sources of existing plugins that you can find here:

Try to compile and hack some existing plugin and you will build more experience to create your own one :)
