I have been developing a few python addins and I'm just wondering what is the best way to re-compile the addin anytime I edit the script.
Currently, if I make an edit to the script, it seems like I have to
- Close ArcMap
- Go to My addin folder and double click the 'makeaddin' python file
- Double click the 'Python Addin File
- Restart ArcMap for the changes to come into effect
If I don't do these steps, then the edits aren't recognized. This gets pretty annoying and time consuming when I want to place maybe a simple print line somewhere or I do a small edit just to test a result.
Is there a better way of doing this?
