Publishing Tools

The Zero Install Publishing Tools allow you to create your own feeds. It consists of two main components:

Feed Editor

  • split with screen graphical and XML view
  • changes in the graphical view are reflected in the XML view immediately and vice-versa
  • syntax-highlighting and error-underlining in the XML view

New Feed Wizard

  • walks you through the entire feed creation process
  • detects entry points (executables) in archives
  • automatically creates appropriate <runner>s for Java, .NET and Python executables
  • extracts metadata (name, version number, etc.) where possible

You need Zero Install to run the Publishing Tools.
