Customizing exporters

Clone an existing exporter, or build your own custom exporter from scratch

All exporter packages are backed by GitHub repositories. This allows the exporter store to take advantage of all GitHub features like forking, distributing versions, or even provide a familiar place to report issues or feature requests directly to the author.

Cloning exporters

If you would like to make your own edits to an existing public exporter in the exporter store, this can be done with cloning.

  1. In Code Integration → Store, locate the exporter you would like to clone and click it to view the details
  2. Click the GitHub Repository button to view it on GitHub
  3. In GitHub, fork the repository
  4. Optional — if you would like to make this exporter public, you must change the unique package identifier
  5. In Code Integration → Store, click + New and provide the URL of the forked repository
  6. Click Confirm

The cloned exporter will now be available in your workspace.

Building custom exporters

We recognize that everyone's requirements and coding standards are different, and that the file structure of the export can be vastly different from project to project — which is why we allow you to build your own custom exporters, and contribute to the community by publishing to the exporter store.
