Mathematica package distribution format. Includes using and understanding the paclet manager, creating, distributing, and customizing paclets, and functionality that creates or uses paclets.
Paclets are managed by functionality in the
"PacletManager`" context and can be used for distributing Mathematica applications, documentation, package code, and other resources.
Installed paclets live in the
$UserBasePacletsDirectory and can generally be loaded via
Get although some frameworks have special paclet formats that are not loadable via the standard mechanisms.
