Building your own macro
Getting started with the Macro Development Toolkit
These instructions are for building a custom macro in Mingle using the Macro Development Toolkit. The toolkit is available as a gem and is available either with your Mingle download (in the <MINGLE_HOME>/tools directory where <MINGLE HOME> is the directory where Mingle is installed) or via the web on GitHub.
If installing from the local gem you can install from the folder containing the gem as follows:
% [sudo] gem install mingle-macro-development-toolkit-2.0.1.gem
If you are installing this gem from its home on GitHub then you can install it using:
% [sudo] gem install mingle-macro-development-toolkit
Building a macro
For information on building a macro please refer to the Mingle Macro Development Toolkit website on GitHub or the getting_started.txt in the installation folder of the gem.
Uninstalling the Macro Development Toolkit
To uninstall the locally installed gem run:
% [sudo] gem uninstall mingle-macro-development-toolkit
