Automatize the creation of a Nautilus Extension: the NExtGen script

I have written a few extensions for GNOME Files (Nautilus Annotations, Nautilus Bluetooth, Nautilus Hide and Nautilus Launch). While writing them I felt the need to automatize the process of setting up a new extension, so a Bash script was born: the NExtGen script (“Nautilus Extension Generator”).

The NExtGen script does not need to be installed in order to be used. You can just launch

git clone
cd nextgen

and have fun.

The script will ask you a few questions about what you intend to use your new Nautilus extension for. After you answer them a new extension template will be waiting for you in your home directory.

If you have any feedback, please leave here a message.



Very cool, thanks for sharing!
