We have created a tutorial to transform a Mathematica package into an Add-on with the following characteristics: 1. It will be loaded using the Needs[] command, just like the built-in Mathematica Add-ons 2. Its documentation will appear in Mathematica's Help Browser 3. It will have a Palette in the Palettes menu of Mathematica.
