Building NuGet Package
BlogEngine.NET uses NuGet (.nupkg) format to distribute extensions, themes or widgets. It is easiest to use NuGet package explorer to create a package. Here are some rules to verify before uploading package to online gallery.
Package ID = extension class name. With theme or widget, it is a name of the theme/widget folder.
In the version number, first 2 digits are current BlogEngine version, last 2 digits are plugin (extension etc) version..
For example, AddThis.18.104.22.168 is extension built for BlogEngine 3.0, extension version 0.2.
Package content folder
Packakge "content" = application root folder. For example, files added to the package as "content/custom/extensions/AddThis" will be distributed to the site under "/custom/extensions/AddThis", folder will be created if not exists.
Package lib folder
Package "lib" = application "/bin" folder. Files added under "lib" will be distributed in the site /bin folder.
Custom admin page
When extension has custom admin page, common location is "custom/extensions/your-extension-name" folder or "/custom/controls/your-extension-name" folder.
Custom styles and scripts
It is better to keep styles and scripts alongside extension or theme files.
So general rule is to keep supporting files under "/Custom" folder and not mix with common application files.
When plugin relies on common component, like jQuery or Bootstrap, it should be specified in the "readme" file of package description. Including multiple jQuery can create conflicts and script errors, so it might be better to include instructions on how to add jQuery if it is not already used by the blog.
