Module development

What is the procedure for “installing” a webmin module under development?

I am working on a new module and want to be able to test development. Do I need to tar up the basic module, install it, and work from there?

I’d really like to run my webmin module right over its git repo so that changes are visible “real-time.” Is this possible?

Kind Regards,


Modules are located in /usr/{share|libexec}/webmin/MODULE_NAME.

When your module is in there, you can work on it “live” – you don’t need to reinstall it each time.

Depending on the changes you make, you may need to restart Webmin, but it shouldn’t be necessary to reinstall the module.
