Developer's Checklist

This page lists the various steps required to create an addon.

  • You need update access to the Jsoftware repositories. For this contact Bill Lam or Chris Burke.
  • If your application was built with Project Manager, you should create a Folder name Addons that points to this directory. This lets you browse the Addons repository from within J. Change your own project file to use the ~Addons prefix for filenames.
  • Define VERSION in manifest.ijs as empty until you are ready to release your addon for use.
  • review the JAL/Build Log and ensure that the build was run. On any error, check the manifest.ijs script and commit any changes.
  • visit the appropriate JAL page listing the addons, e.g. Vocabulary/Libraries, then click on the link for your new addon to create a wiki page for the addon documentation.

For help, email specific issues to <<MailTo(jal AT SPAMFREE jsoftware DOT com)>>, or general comments to the general forum.
