Are there any user guide on how to create your own custom activities package for UiPath?
Like just creating “Hello World” function or something like that. I want to create package, but not sure where to start.

Thanks. I will check them out :slight_smile:

One additional note - designer is not mandatory for code activities. It helps, but for starters might be easier to go without.

Isn’t there something missing? The nuget package builder expects a .dll, but all the WF4 guides compile to .exe.

Try going to Project Properties > Output Type : “Class Library”.

Hi

I am able to create custom activity out of a .net dll and use in UIPath project.
My ask was to expose a UIPath project itself as an activity. THis is to consume a reusable project in another project. I understand we have approach to expose UIpath project as webservice and consume. But I am looking for alternate ways
