?

Should we make a Plugin organization or other place for developers to post their plugins at?

    I was wondering what you guys would think about me making another place to post plugins. With all of the new developments @dktapps is making in developing Pocketmine, I want to be sure to give new plugin developers a chance to have their plugins available to the public.

    I know that this can be achieved by each individual author making a Github Repo, releases, etc. But, I would like to make a central place where plugins can be posted, shared, and downloaded from. I was thinking about making a Github Organization, but I want to know your thoughts on it first.

    If something else is already being done to give newer plugin developers a chance to show their awesome plugins already, I understand completely and will support that as much as possible, but I have not heard any news on the subject.

    So, if nothing at the moment is being done for people to post their plugins (Which is totally fine, I understand you are busy), then I would like to spearhead the effort.

    Of course, I would need reviewers and other volunteers to help, but we can figure out all of that later if this comes to life ;)

    Thanks for your time

    Yes! I really like this idea. But maybe it could be like its own website, instead of just a Github organization.

    Yes! That's another idea I had. I was just researching hosts (I would really like it to be free :p I know that's most likely not reasonable) and am looking into it. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. It would be a huge help :)

    We could also do both, Github has a webpage service for organizations/projects.

    personally unless you have some unique idea dont even try or else there would end up with ton of just xenforo plugin forums competing against each other and spreading our own tiny community even thinner than ever which just helps no one in the end of the road
    i will support and happy to volunteer if it is something more than a xenforo forum

    Definitely not another XenForo... :) I was thinking of just making a place where people could just put their plugins for others to view/download. Preferably something crowd sourced with an upvote/downvote system. That way, the community would decide what plugins were good or bad. I wasn't thinking of making a forums too, just a plugin website with actual new plugins coming in.

    @TheDeibo I Wasn't trying to create spam. Sorry if it came off that way. I viewed this as an actual suggestion to a solution, rather than just asking where I could post my plugin.

    Sorry if it came off as spam...;)

    ok not a bad idea IMO we just need a platform(or make one if necessary if that is possible) if we are planning to execute it (or we are just drawing plan on paper and hoping someone will pick it up for us)

    Yes, I was thinking about infinityfree.net hosting, or maybe somewhere else. Infinity Free has the most flexibility, and I like their themes. I made a prototype account. It's not up yet, but the url would be https://pocketmineplugins.rf.gd I am looking into different options here to see if an upvote/downvote system is available there. If you have any other suggestions, please tell me.
    I am so excited to see new plugins!

    Ok so that will be the hosting provider next is the platform to run this
    example pm's platform is xenforo
    but i dont think we could find something that suits our need unless we use X forum platform and make a plugin for X platform

    Webhosting is pretty cheap nowadays. I can sponsor first months and the platform should be custom IMHO.

    Yes, we definitely need a custom platform to use. Does anyone here want to tackle the task? I could try but I doubt I could do as good a job as others here.
