How to get started ..... problem when ant tries to sign

So, I wanted to try and take the stock quote extension and try modifying it to try a different provider and get options prices.

I am confused though, I now have both the developers kit and also the github code. I see in the readme a link to a slack workspace. Cool, I think. That gets me nowhere. I was quite confused after all this - I'm a little less now.

In trying to build the github code, in particular the miscdebug - thought this might be useful??? I eventually realized that I needed to include the packaged moneydance.jar file, but I really don't need the devkit???

I tried following the instructions using ant to build the mxt file. Well, no problem generating keys. I get the code to compile, but signing fails. Figure I'll try it anyway, in Moneydance, I try loading the extension from file and it gives me an error Zip END Header not found.

I am using Open JDK version 13 (had to upgrade) on windows 10 64-bit. Any pointers to what I should do next? Just curios, has anyone been able to run extensions inside an IDE (IntelliJ, eclipse etc) for debugging?

I uploaded the output from ant.
     [java] Caused by: No installed provider supports this key:

I see in the IDE that extadmin.jar has that class file. Presumably ant is finding the jar because the sign target is running the KeyAdmin class from that jar file.
