[PD] deken package question

So I followed your instructions and proceeded with the upload. The packages are all sitting there in My Folder, but not appearing when I search for them under Help --> Find Externals. It's been about 8 hours. Is this normal, and if not, what could have gone wrong?


If you are looking for ideas for the command line utility, then maybe a --recursive switch to the 'package' command to make it search in sub-folders as well?

but *I* am looking for a solution that makes the cmdline utility more usable -
even if it requires changing things.

i still don't understand what you mean by "delete the dummy external".

probably something like the following:

cp context/foo/bar.pd_linux  context/
deken package --version 0.1 context
zip -d context\[v0.1\]*.dek context/bar.pd_linux
rm context\[v0.1\]*.dek.*
deken upload context\[v0.1]*.dek

the above *should* work (the principle; i haven't run any of the commands)
but heck, the worst thing that can happen if it doesn't
work is that you there has been some bogus upload to puredata.info, which can
manually fix; or that there hasn't been an upload at all.
