Add Plugin Package¶
The plugin use Unity’s package to organize itself. It is distributed as a tarball file. The release package is a zip file, and you will get readme files and a
tgz file after extracting the zip file. Do not extract the
com.easyar.sense-*.tgz file in the popup dialogue.
tgz file cannot be deleted or moved to another place after import, so it is always a good practice to find a suitable place for the file before import. If you want to share the project with others, you can put the file inside the project and your version control system.
