Hi Luke, really I am talking about much more: I managed to use
appveyor in add-ons thanks to Abdel. Other people tried it too.
Anyway, my first successful experience was when Abdel developed an
functional appveyor file to be use in conjunction with add-on
template. He also added fixes in sconstruct to fix an issue produced

ftp, not just for GitHub.
Now I like a lot GitHub Actions and Mesar worked a lot creating
functional GitHub Actions which can download an executable for NVDA an
install it, so that eventually add-ons may be tested if needed in
GitHub servers. I worked with Mesar experimenting with Actions and he
is a super-developer with lot of skills.
I will wait for the future add-on store if finally becomes a reality,
since I think that each of us uses a version of sconstruct, appveyor,
Actions and so on, so maybe easier to know if a unified way is
I wrote a tutorial for using GitHub Actions and to be notified about
add-ons commit using Google services in the wiki:

Actions for experimenting (by Mesar and me) are at
All this maybe included in addonTemplate.

It may need some slight updates for Python 3.7 however. I will send
