Description

• 

The GetProperty command fetches a named property from a workbook's metadata when given a workbook's file name or the keyword, "this://" as the first argument.  If the first argument is a cloud identifier for a publicly available package in the Maple Cloud, then the property metadata is fetched from the cloud.

• 

Properties are useful when posting content to the MapleCloud, and when creating packages that can be installed. Some of the properties recognized by the MapleCloud include: all, authors, description, ID, language, screenshots, tags, thumbnail, title, and version.  You can only query for all if the first argument is a cloud identifier.

• 

Additional metadata properties that are automatically assigned by the MapleCloud include: "X-CloudGroup", "X-CloudId", "X-CloudURL", "X-CloudVersion", and "X-CloudXId".

• 

When the first argument, package, is a filename, it should be the name of a ".maple" file.
