We have just released a small QGIS python plugin for quickly displaying of WKT data.

During the last development effort for out GeoDjango-based platform, we’ve been in the need to test if GIS buffering functions were working as expected. Since everything was executed on the server without any user interaction, we ended up logging plain WKT geometries. Of course understanding the shape and dimensions of a geometry just reading it coordinates is almost impossible, and we couldn’t find an easy way to quickly display WKT geometries in our GIS software QGIS. This new plugin allows a user to paste WKT geometries into a dialog text field and get it displayed in QGIS inside a temporary (in-memory) layer. You can find the new plugin named QuickWKT on Official QGIS plugins repository.
