Hi Héctor and Paul!


Right, addonPackager is very good add-on.

NVDAExtensionGlobalPlugin is great too.

Congratulations to both of you.

Well, I just looked at it and indeed NVDAExtensionGlobalPlugin has the feature of utilities for add-ons.

Well I think NVDAExtensionGlobalPlugin in the option to manage the add-ons is more focused on developers.

The Add-on Packer is more for the user who wants to have a copy of the add-ons quickly, so they can share them, have them saved etc. Having the possibility to pack them all at once or choose the ones you want and be able to pack them.

What you have in your add-on I think is much more advanced and focused on a more advanced and specific but also usable by normal users.

By the way, I take this opportunity to congratulate you because you have just loaded several add-ons that I had installed and some that were no longer going to be updated.

NVDAExtensionGlobalPlugin just got a slot in my NVDA.


Best regards

For information, this functionality exists also in the
NVDAExtensionGlobalPlugin add-on, but rather oriented add-on development.
Best regards.

Well the first thing to apologize for my English is simply thanks to the translator.


Well a few months ago I started programming some things for NVDA in the Spanish community.


Well, after being a user of NVDA a long time ago I found a problem that for those who have the knowledge is not such.

There is a reality in NVDA and it is the amount of non official complements that there are.


Well, many times we lose the original, the page where we downloaded the complement or simply shared it and we do not remember who shared it.


Who knows how to repackage the add-on has no problem but there are users who do not know the process.


Well, that is what happened to me that I had to share an add-on with a friend and when I was doing the whole process I thought it would be great if NVDA had something that would facilitate that very same thing, to generate again an add-on already installed.


Well, I leave you to see what you think of (addonPackager.


In Github there is all the information about how to use it, although it is very simple.


Once installed in Tools we will have the possibility to launch the addon.


The addon is currently translated into Spanish, French, Portuguese (Portugal) and Brazilian Portuguese.


It is simple and good in the Hispanic community to like quite a lot.


I know that surely you do not like this practice of repackaging an add-on directly from NVDA but being realistic this is something that is done from the beginning. Therefore consider after evaluating and putting in the documentation the corresponding security warnings to make such a tool that facilitates the whole process.


Well this is the link to the latest version of the add-on:

And this is the repository on Github:


Cordial greetings.
