Where share scripts, which website ?

Postby DavidTerp » Wed Jan 04, 2017 4:58 am

Hello,

I made a set of custom scripts for linux. I wish to share these with users on internet. Please, could you tell me where to share my scripts, on which website ?
Thanks

i am not sure i completely understand your question.

if your interest applies to Mint directly, i believe Clem, or one of the Developers can get you going in the correct direction.

otherwise, https://launchpad.net/ might be a good place to begin. i do think i heard at some point, M$ was going to bed with Canonical, not sure if that ever formally happened. i guess that would not truly matter, as long as you found the correct exposure for your talents.

Happy New-Year to you David & everyone else. hope this helps :D

I see a lot of things posted on GoogleDocs (I think that's what it's called).

You can set up an account on https://github.com/ and create a new project on your account and put your scripts there. That way others can share issues and improvements to the scripts with you as well. Or use their paste service for "share & forget" (as in, you don't care for feedback or future improvements: you just want to dump your scripts in the public domain) if that is what you want: https://gist.github.com/. Many developers use both of these to share their personal scripts. You can also find Linux Mint's project here https://github.com/linuxmint.

Before you share your scripts publicly put a copyright notice in them and choose a license. Without stating a license nobody will be allowed to copy or modify your script (see http://choosealicense.com/no-license/). That can be as simple as putting these two lines in the top of your files:
# Copyright YEAR, YOURNAME
# SPDX-License-Identifier: LICENSE

Replace YEAR with the year or years in which you published versions of this file. Replace YOURNAME with your name. Replace LICENSE with the license you want to use. GNU recommend (see https://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-re ... tions.html) you use Apache-2.0 as license for scripts and programs of less than 300 lines. For longer programs use GPL-3.0+. You can find the full list of standardized license names here https://spdx.org/licenses/. You can also use http://choosealicense.com/ to help you choose a license if the GNU recommendation is not good enough for you. https://tldrlegal.com/ can also be useful to put licenses in plain english what rights you grant your users.

Great for your reply, all. Thanks. I will have a look in Github.
