Fizzer's Source Code Release Thread

category: code [glöplog]
thumbs up for releasing those fizzer! :)
i agree with kusma that to have them also on github would make it more useful in practical terms. i wanted to fork them into the in4k group, and can't without uploading them myself, which i guess i'll end up doing if edd doesnt feel that interested in having it on his own github account. but it does feel a bit awkward to upload someone elses source when they even have an account there, even though the license clearly allows it.

The reasons for my hesitation to put the code on GitHub were:

  • I really don't feel like spending that extra effort after the time it has taken to properly prepare the sourcecode itself, to contact people for permission, and to ensure everything still compiles to under 4kb and still runs, etc.
  • My feeling was that this loose collection of archives with no platform affiliation is more 'free and open'.
  • I wanted to leave the choice of platform to others, so that it isn't necessarily GitHub but possibly something else, such as GitLab.
  • None of these demos are living projects. They are done, and "feature-frozen". This means for example that a pull request makes no sense, and thus a collaboration-focused platform is not necessary. That said, I don't want to prevent people from fixing bugs in-place if they really want to.

However, I like kusma's idea of a central location for demo source archival. I wasn't aware of the in4k group. Plus the code-browsing features of GitHub are very useful indeed. I also (obviously) do like the idea of kusma handling the GitHub upload for me, and putting it under my name just to properly indicate the original author. I actually didn't know this was possible, and I'd be very grateful if you would do this for me kusma!
