Compared to the old way of creating snippets and plug-ins which can be resumed in 2 3 steps the new way is quite complex.
I understand why there is a need for complexity. I was only interested in a different tutorial that might be a bit simple.
For example I was trying to create the ParentParent plug-in which basically is based on UltimateParent. I thought that by modifying the UltimateParent I would create the new plugin (which might be possible) but itâ€™s not the right way.
You can still do everything the old way. For your example, you can still create a Plugin, enter the code, and go from there.
That tutorial shows how to create Transport Packages
, which are zip files compiled of lots of different things - from Elements, to Resources, to actual files. They are used to quickly and easily download and install Components. They are not, however, necessary for a Component to function. They just help automate the install/uninstall process and provide more advanced Component maintenance functionality.
You can still install and uninstall plugins/snippets/whatever the old way. It just takes longer, like it used to.
