templates also support MATE, the GNOME 2 fork from Linux Mint Mar 6, 2013



Makes all the basic boilerplate for applets that are compatible with both 2.x and 3.x Gnome and MATE panels.

Usage: [options]

-h, --help show this help message and exit
-n NAME, --name=NAME
 Applet name (required)
 Description (required)
-i ICON, --icon=ICON
 Icon (in /usr/share/icons, without the full path)
-c CATEGORY, --category=CATEGORY
 Category of the applet (see for full list)
 Maintainer name
-e EMAIL, --email=EMAIL
 Maintainer email
-f FOLDER, --folder=FOLDER
 Destination folder (default: same as the name)

You'll need at least a name and description, but filling in the rest is a good idea
