Additional Open-Source Code Examples
Additional open-source code examples can be found by some developers. Some Synthiam skills are published OpenSource in our GitHub repository by clicking here.
Adding Custom ARC Icons
Your skill will use the default icon if there isn't another specified. To add an icon, include either a transparent PNG in your project output folder named title.png. This file will be used in the Add Skill window of ARC as an icon for your skill.
Changing ARC Category
You may wish to change the category of your skill from BETA to an appropriate category when publishing to the public. The category is specified in the Plugin.xml file. The category is must match one of the categories from the ARC Add Control menu.
Share Unpublished Skill (User Testing)
It is a smart idea to share your newly created skill with others before publishing to the public. You can copy the URL of the DOWNLOAD option on your Skill Definition page and send to others. The DOWNLOAD option will not display until a valid skill file has been uploaded to the skill Definition.
To share the install of the skill, simply copy the URL of the DOWNLOAD option or send the .PLUGIN to your test group.
