Package designer is all about creating packages in no-time/seconds. You create a block with Block Designer, go to Package designer and enter a name, handle, description and select your block(s) and order them how you want them to be installed. Now click make the package et voila! You're done in under a minute. Can't be any easier.


  • Package Name;
  • Package Handle;
  • Package description;
  • Required C5 version (dropdown);
  • Package Version;

That's it!


  • Icon (otherwise default C5 icon will be used);
  • Direct Install (yes/no);
  • Block Types (drag/drop blocks in the order you want them to be installed);
  • Directories (click/check directories you want to be created for the package, this will save you some typing);

Time savers:

  • Load a configuration of a package you created earlier by clicking "Load config" next to a package;
  • Load a configuration from other users or me, by just copy/pasting into the config.json text area;
  • Use Block Designer to create your blocks first, then use Package Designer to create a package from your created block(s);

Now this is a real time saver for developers and shouldn't be used as a tool to quickly earn money on the add-on store. We want quality add-ons!
