Making a new convenience packageΒΆ

There is a cookiecutter template provided in this repo that can be used to make new packages.

pip install cookiecutter
cookiecutter contrib/template -o contrib/

This should ask you a bunch of questions, and generate a directory named after your project with a python package. From there, you should:

  1. Edit the __init__.py file to fill in the command used to start your process, any environment variables, and title of the launcher icon
  2. (Optionally) Add a square svg icon for your launcher in the icons subfolder, with the same name as your project.
