Hey guys, since we have multiple people releasing various bits of software, I figured I'd ask around and see if offering software hosting & version control would be something anyone would be interested in.
I have an in-house GitLab server for those interested in using Git version control.  I've used Git for hundreds of projects (over 300 projects with my previous employer), KongHack, the User Script, even the Ultra Trainer use Git.
For smaller compiled projects, I'm thinking about knocking together a simple versioning system.  This way, you can always provide the same link for your download, and you'll have a call back url you can use within your projects to check if they're running the latest version.  All simple RESTful API stuff.
If you're interested, let me know and I'll hammer out a data model and start putting code in place to make everything work. :)

Never let a computer tell´╗┐ me shit.

It doesnt add any benefit for me. but for others it might.




I use this AoB tool to make all the AoBs I post. Try the online version if you dont feel like downloading it.

This would definitely be beneficial for me, as I was the one to ask for something related :P

Since you've posted your source code, would you rather host the source in GIT?  It's pretty easy to use, and if you have a half hour I could walk you through every bit of it step by step.

My keyboard is currently MIA so i can't do much right now. Id also prefer to keep certain tools (such as the SSL2 one) closed source. With that, ill just accept no hosting :P

lol, whatever works.  Source or no, you'll probably need a plce people can actually download from, and what better place than KH? :)

Allright, this is 95% done.  The last 5% is the display page design.  I'll come up with something for it soon.

Anyway, here's how to use it.

1) Go to the software center in the UCP:  https://konghack.com/ucp/software
2) Create a new piece of software
3) SAVE!

You can view all software in the system via https://konghack.com/software
For example, my demo record: https://konghack.com/software/2-test_software

Let's say you have a piece of software published through this system and you want to do some version checking.  You can call
https://konghack.com/software/2-test_software/version
to get a simple text output of the version number.  Say you launch your app and check that URL to line up version numbers.

Or, let's say you want to get the latest news for your app
https://konghack.com/software/2-test_software/news
this'll return the raw HTML entered in the latest news box.


If you have any ideas for a layout/design for the details page, let me know before tomorrow night and I'll take it into consideration while I buildout the final display page.
