Description Björn Michaelsen 2016-01-30 11:05:19 UTC
The AddOns.xcu file in an extension describes what menus or toolbars an extension adds/modifies/removes. Well-commented examples for it can be found in the sdk-examples repository at:;a=summary

e.g. the TuesdayPython/Addons.xcu.

The XML format of these is pretty verbose and cumbersome -- and handwriting these can be errorprone. It would be nice to have script (in Python or somesuch) wizard that can generate these.
