Hello, I wish to create a package for a precompiled module (no source code). Can someone point me in the right direction?

Thank you

We designed Orchard specifically so that all modules would be hackable by editing the source code. Precompiling is a choice of the administrator of the site when deploying, not of the module developer.

Why do you want to do that?

Thanks for the response, I was unclear about the whole Precompiling concept - the module is mission critical and wanted to eliminate as much risk and performance bottlenecks as I could.

Ah, then you're covered. Just deploy the whole thing precompiled...

We had a similar problem when adding in a feed of hotel and resort info using our prebuilt libraries. We just include the libraries in the module, works a treat.
