How to package macros together for distribution?
« on: December 03, 2019, 09:04:32 pm »
This morning I remembered a discussion on here from a few years ago:
I don't really know how to distribute this easily.
I've included a zip with several *.e files.
There isn't a great way to package macros right now. The current plan is to support macro plugins for v22 (not v21 which is the next major release).
I also have many macros that I've provided to a large user base (75+ engineers.) It would be much easier to instruct someone on how to load a single package on a wiki instead of forcing them to open/load each macro. Additionally, when it comes to making updates to these macros instructing people that have no idea what macros are to unload (a couple of dozen macros)/update/load the correct files is totally unrealistic. I'm leaning toward creating a batch macro for this but I feel there should be a better way that is more standardized. Any updates on this front?
