Gallery for Writer is coming…


The Windows Live Writer community has really done a great job of diving in and making some cool plugins. Pretty soon we’ll launch our own space on Windows Live Gallery for developers to showcase their Writer plugins.

Spike has put up a post on our (new) official blog for plugin developers detailing the process for getting your plugin onto Gallery on Day 1.

The first requirement on the list is that your plugin needs to be packaged up as an .msi. If you’ve got Visual Studio, you might be able to use the built-in Setup Wizard to generate your .msi.

If you don’t have Visual Studio (or the edition you have doesn’t come with the Setup stuff), you will probably want to use WiX. There’s a bit of a learning curve for WiX, but Bonnie has a template that should make things relatively painless.
