I've installed civicrm on drupal site (on remote virtual hosting). And I need to create an extension for civicrm. As far as I know, civix is required for that. I've read https://github.com/totten/civix/ but can't install civix. I've downloaded archive, extracted it and put to /sites/default/files/civicrm folder and it doesn't work. So where I have to place civix? Something else is reqired? Some executables or any other things?
And the next question: how to generate module extension using that civix? I've read https://wiki.civicrm.org/confluence/display/CRMDOC/Create+a+Module+Extension#CreateaModuleExtension-Generateaskeletalextension - there are some things that I can't understand, for example "/var/www/extensions" - I have no such path in my civicrm.
