How to turn a customization into an add-on? in Add-Ons Development Posted April 19, 2013 @@Julien324 The install files yu may have found in some contributions, do as you imply, they either create or modify database tables, making it a step or 2 shorter for the one installing. Depending what you have made, there are a few ways to go about it, you could create a mod that links into the oscTemplate class, and then create a module file for it. Again, depending what you made, it could hook into a template block and function, or simply hook to nothing, yet the module file controls adding or removing its functioanility where ever it may be. Other than that, carefully write out instructions of what to find, and what to replace with, and a set of sql commands to run. You may find it more work than you wish to deal with writing out documentation, and in that case, simply write a thorough description of what your modification will do, and include the editied files with notes to use a file comparision program for instlling + any sql commands. If anyone else finds good use for the contribution, they may addon/edit/modify it (including istructions) for the use of others. I hope that did not confuse you, but in time it "may" become clear. So what do you have in mind to release? Letting the community know my be the first step in the right direction.
