Hello Paul


Well, I have seen the feature. But what is a .pot for example?

And the .py file you can create, what is it for?


Thank you

Asunto: [nvda-addons] Introducing my first addon Packager of complements.


Hi Sergio.
You must install the "development tools" functionnality.
With "nvda+j"  and "t", you will open the "development tools" dialog.
Best regards.

Hello Paul

If your plugin already has the feature, how can you use it? I have not known until now that your plugin has this and I would like to see it.


Thank you

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.
