Sharing Omnis Libraries on GitHub
At the Euromnis annual general meeting last week I volunteered to write a step-by-step guide for how to share Omnis libraries on GitHub. I’m pleased to announce that guide is available here:
I wrote a blog post explaining why it’s important for us to share Omnis code on GitHub, but if you want the TL;DR: version, we need several hundred repositories that contain Omnis code in order to register Omnis as an official language with GitHub. Hence, I hope the above guide will be helpful to everyone in the pursuit of that goal.
If you want to read more, here is the post:
I’d also like to give a huge thank you to Henk Noppe for writing a second guide on how to contribute to an Omnis library that’s hosted on GitHub, and to Christoph Schwerdtner for beta-testing the guide. You can find Henk’s guide here:
As a starting metric, there are 2,986 files with a .omh extension and a 1,338 with a .lbs extension on GitHub as of this writing. Not all of these are Omnis code, but I’ll report back periodically with how we’re doing in raising these numbers.
If anyone needs help sharing their library on GitHub, I’m happy to provide it either on this list, or via direct email.
Thank you in advance for sharing your code!
