Modify pocket content with another plugin?

Is there a way for my plugin to modify the pocket content?

I want my plugin to replace a tag in the pocket content.

If it's not possible, what sort of hooks or events would I need to add?

    It looks like the pockets plugin doesn't throw any events, but I could add some. Can you explain a bit more about what you want to do so I can see what can be done?

    My Countdown plugin replaces a peice of text with a widget. This works for comments but users have requested it work in more areas, such as those provided by pockets.

    Basically, I need to replace some text in a pocket with some content of my own.

    Does that clarify things?

    Gotcha, let me see what I can do.

    Okay, I've added an event, but I need to back-port it to the current pockets plugin. You'll be able to use it like this:

       public function PocketsPlugin_ToString_Handler($Sender, $Args) {
          $Pocket = $Args['Pocket'];
          if ($Pocket->Name == 'Test pocket...') {
             $Pocket->Body = '<b>Foo</b>';
             $Pocket->Format = 'Raw';

    Do you mind testing this version of the Pockets plugin @matt?
