I was wondering if there was any documentation or pointers on how to form an Add-in for M9.

I've looked at the online docs for 9 but can't find anything. Even the 'Tools' menu documentation overlooks the Add-in item (docs need updating?).

I tried creating and dropping a simple Add-in xml and txt script into "C:\...\manifold-9.0.167-x64\manifold-9.0.167-x64\shared" (where a helpful txt document says "Use this folder to keep your custom configuration files"). Running Tools>Add-ins>Rescan yields: "Add-in commands:0". Moving the files to a folder called Config doesn't help either.

Has anyone made an Add-in for M9 yet?

Could anyone offer a simple example?

(1) The script must be valid (must already run inside 9).

(2) Use a file extension indicating the language (e.g. .cs, .vb, .py, .vbs, etc), not .txt.

(3) No .xml file is required. Everything is scanned automatically.

This is from memory. There is documentation--I will find it tomorrow if not beaten to it.

One example is here.

quickest way to get started is to copy the Dump_Code.cs file into \shared
