Plugin files stucture myPlugin.cbplugin
« on: November 15, 2023, 03:18:09 pm »
Please tell me which files and in which structure they should be created so that a plugin with the *.cbplugin extension can be installed through the code::blocks.
Example:

Code
myPlugin_v1.0.0.cbplugin
  | - manifest.xml
  | - my_plugin.dll
  | - myPlugin_v1.0.0.zip
  | - ...

  | - myPlugin_v1.0.0.zip

The *.cbplugin needs a .zip file containing the manifest.
Along with the .zip file, *.cbplugin needs the .dll file.
So it looks like:
*.cbPlugin
|- myPlugin.zip
     |- myManifest.xml
|- myPlugin.dll

.cbplugin is actually a .zip file renamed to cbplugin.
You can also include resources within the internal myPlugin.zip file along with the .xml manifest file.
Like images that can be loaded by the .dll

Of course, I accidentally came across the wiki, but I don't know about you, but everything is so confusing and there is a lot of text, that I think it could all be shown on one screenshot with arrows, what comes from where and where.  ;)

Managing Plug-in Resources
Which version of the widgets would you recommend 2.8.x or 3.3.x?
 And is all this information on the wiki up to date?
