Thank you for your advices Moritz !
I succeed (I guess..) to make a package with several python scripts
(one by sub-folder) and a shared library (in its own sub-folder). I can
install with g.extension (only in command line) (why?). But the entries
does not appear in g.extension list because they are not in in
.grass7/addons/modules.xml. I do not find anything about the way to add
my entries in that file. It's not a part of Makefile commands. How it's
I notice that: if I install twice my package (suite) with g.extension,
the library sub-folder is copied inside the library sub-folder (one
level too low and do not replace), if I install once again, the library
replace the lowest level folder. So, If i update the library I must
remove manually the library to keep it at the right level. Do you have
an idea of the reason ? (I suppose Makefile, but I don't understand -
see below the Makefile)
I have created a custom menu toolboxes.xml. Is there a way ton install
my menu and insert the sub-toolbox in main_menu.xml ?
Concerning french accent, as you suggest, I can use html special
characters &xxx; for the <description> part, and it works. But not in
the #% description module entries of the python script for correct
display in gui. However, the manual display bad characters in the upper
section (like Ã© for é), and good in the lowest... Is there a way to
have accent both in gui and manual ?
MODULE_TOPDIR = ../../..
MODULES = utils __init__
PGM = r.wtg
LIBDIR = libwtg
ETCDIR = $(ETC)/$(PGM)/$(LIBDIR)
PYFILES := $(patsubst %,$(ETCDIR)/%.py,$(MODULES))
PYCFILES := $(patsubst %,$(ETCDIR)/%.pyc,$(MODULES))
default: $(PYFILES) $(PYCFILES)
$(ETCDIR)/%: % | $(ETCDIR)
$(INSTALL_DATA) $< $@
cp -r $(ETCDIR) $(INST_DIR)/etc/$(PGM)/$(LIBDIR)
