LXer: Create an extension the easy way with BasicAddonBuilder

Published at LXer:

So you've written a nifty macro and want to share it with the world. You can, of course, publish the code on your Web site, but a better way to go is to pack it as an easy-to-install extension. An extension is just a plain zip archive containing, besides the macro itself, a few XML-based files that needs to properly install the package. Theoretically, it's possible to create the required XML files in a text editor, but it would be as effective as digging a garden using a teaspoon. Fortunately, there is a tool that you can use to create an extension in a point-and-click fashion.
