Add-on is a Python package. The structure of an add-ons repository is as follows, package name being a name of a directory of the add-on's Python package, often lowercased addonname:
orange-addonname/ COPYING LICENSE setup.py docs/ Makefile rst/ conf.py index.rst _packagename/ datasets/ widgets/ __init__.py ... __init__.py ... src/
docs contains reST documentation of the add-on. src possible contains C/C++ source code. datasets any additional datasets add-on might use.
Package name starts with _ to signify it is for internal use only. Add-ons register through setuptools hook into Orange namespace. Use relative imports to access other modules inside the package, if possible.
setup.py, Makefile, and conf.py as prepared in Biolab's add-ons can be used to get a good starting point for a new add-on.
