How do i generate a nativescript plugin tarball with the new workflow?

Issue

I am trying to build a plugin around a native iOS/Android SDK. I would like to know to finally generate a my-plugin.tgz file so that I can use it locally without publishing it.
I have done this with Nativescript 6.x, but I would like to know how to do this with the new workflow in Nativescript 7.x.

Thank You.

Solution

After running the build command from npm start, you will get a dist directory with a structure like this

dist
  |- packages
        |- your-plugin-name

cd into the packages directory and run npm pack your-plugin-name and you should get the .tgz file in the same directory which you can use in locally
