Long time lurker / Cinder enthusiast and first time poster here.
I'm curious if there are plans for an official directory
of blocks as I think such a directory would help folks who are new
to Cinder better understand (and participate in) the ecosystem that
surrounds the framework.
I did a search through the forums and found a couple of
projects out there but not sure if they are still actively maintained.
Nice first post! It's true, several people have asked for
something like this and it's something the Cinder team definitely
likes to add to the official site in the future. For now, there simply
is a lack of time and resources to do it properly, though.
Your effort is very welcome and looks great. Very nice that
we're able to sort the blocks as well. Using the number of
"stargazers" as a measure of popularity works fine, too.
Hopefully it will motivate people to click on the little star in
Github for every block they love.
This is great!! I had planned to do the same but you've saved me the
work - thanks!
The results filtered by cinderblock.xml file look pretty good to
me. I think asking that people make sure to have the file in their
root to make sure it shows up is fair enough. Perhaps a repo naming
convention like cinder-* would also be a fair request. (or maybe these
could be optionally disabled search filters on the page?)
Would be great to see this as part of the main site.
Yeah me too, I could probably tweak the html metatags but not sure how much of a difference it would make. SEO is definitely not my area of expertise. Suggestions on how to make the site easier to discover are very much welcome.
This is really fantastic. Just what I was looking for as I get started with Cinder. And the search function is really handy too. My vote is for the Cinder folks to host it (or at least link to it) from the libcinder domain to make it easy to find.
