Support forumCategory: QuestionsConsider hosting the plugin on Github
hannes_lorenz asked 5 years ago

On Github you would have features like:

  • An issue tracker for bugs and new features
  • Easy release management
  • An easy way to review the plugin code for other developers
  • A wiki feature
  • Most important: Other people could make pull requests for features they implemented and help improving/enhancing the plugin

What do you think about this?

Hi,

that is good suggestion and I am planning to do that for some time now. Issue is that current WP plugin repo is in SVN and not GIT sadly 🙁 . But I will put this to github so anyone can contribute in any way by opening the issue or submitting pull request etc 🙂

Best regards,
Nikola

I never tried it, but it seems possible to convert your svn to a git repository: https://www.atlassian.com/git/tutorials/migrating-convert
But yeah, I’m happy to see it some day on github 🙂

Thanks, but I need SVN in order to push things to WordPress.org because it is hosted there. I will switch to GitHub for sure at some point 🙂

Best regards,
