How to Create a New Add-on Package

  1. Create add-on extension:
    • Create & test scripts, Java code, wiki applications, or whatever else you need.
  2. Create add-on documentation topic:
    • Decide on a WikiWord that ends in -AddOn, such as MyFirstAddOn.
    • Enter add-on topic name:
      Note: New topics are based on NewAddOnTemplate
    • Do not save the topic yet, but copy the content to the clipboard.
    • Paste the content to your own add-on topic in the TWiki web of your TWiki installation.
    • Modify the topic as needed. The template should be self-explanatory, but if not, look at other add-on topics listed in AddOnPackage.
  3. Create add-on package:
    • Place add-on documentation topic and supporting topics in the TWiki web, place sample topics in the Sandbox web.
    • Attach binary files to add-on topic and/or supporting topics (if applicable).
    • Create a zip file that contains all add-on files, keeping the directory structure intact. Use exactly the same name as the add-on, such as MyFirstAddOn.zip.
  4. Publish add-on on TWiki.org:
    • Return to this topic here and use above form to create the add-on topic.
    • This time, paste your topic text into the edit window, replacing the default topic text, and save.
    • Attach the zip file to the add-on topic
