Extending Clipper with Extras

An Extra, in Clipper terms, is a package containing code that extends the functionality of the CMS without modifying the core code. An Extra may range from a single text file for copying into a snippet definition, to a complex package of files with its own installer.

The Clipper installer includes a number of standard Extras which are maintained along with the core files. You can choose whether or not to install them during setup. This section details usage of these "bundled" Extras.

Further Extras, developed by the Clipper team or uploaded by the community, are available from the Clipper Repository via the Package Manager. (Instructions for creating your own packages are currently being drafted, and will be posted in this section.)
