Question about SMF Package Management

(1/3) > >>

Hi There,

I've been very impressed with the clean fast nature of this board and
am considering becoming a charter member. I tend to write a lot of
mods for my forums and am particularly interested in the package
manager feature you talk about in your marketing blurb.
Could someone explain, in technical detail, how it works please,
as that would be a key element in my becoming a charter member.
Incidentally, I currently use wBB2.x and have written a lot of mods
for it (including an automatic hack installer) ...

Well, basically, it is like the "automatic hack installer" you speak of for wbb, more or less.  But there's a lot to it, and it's not even done yet.

However, it is getting closer every day, and as someone remarked after looking at the changelog, most of the changes going in this week have been for the package manager because I've made it a priority.

I'm sure you'l get replies saying "look at YaBB SE's package stuff" but please... don't heed them.  The package manager is completely different and barely even similar to the YaBB SE, erm, equivalent.

If you're comfortable with xml or using a program to generate your packages, you will like it.

Program as in what? Like your YaBBpak Maker?

[Unknown]:
No, a different program.
