Hello everyone,

I'm trying to execute a specific action right after the user installed my plugin. Is there a convenient way to do so?

My current approch is saving a isFirstStartup boolean value in the plugin's preferences - but that's rather cumbersome and not the smartest solution possible, I think.

Best regards,
Stefan
