I made a decision today. I decided that I was going to open up my plugins to the world; well, most of them. Out of my 10 plugins that I have, I have put 7 of them on CodePlex and made them opensource. So what three didn’t I put on there? Well, my Video plugin, my Emoticon plugin and my Feed Reader plugin. Now the first two that I haven’t included some of you can probably guess why I didn’t open them up (as well as maybe be a little disappointed, sorry), but what reason do I have for not putting the Feed Reader plugin on CodePlex? Simple: I lost the source code for the released version . I had most of my source code backed up, and I started working on v2 of the feed reader plugin and unfortunately, my backup got lost (thanks X-Drive), so the only source code I have for it is the very incomplete and changed v2 source. So for that, I apologise (and curse X-Drive) again.
So, what ones are up there then? Well the Live Spaces Photo one and the Google Translator were already on there, but here’s the complete list:
- Insert Acronym Tags
- I’m Feeling Lucky
- Insert Amazon Details
- Insert Google Translation
- Insert Quick Link
- Insert Video Jnr
- Live Spaces Photo Album
So enjoy . One thing I do ask though, if you do modify any of the plugins, please, let me know, I’d love to see what you thought of adding/changing, and if you do release anything based off my plugins, please link back to this blog. Also, if you wish to contribute to the plugins, please email me at wlm[at]scottisafool.co.uk with your username on CodePlex and I shall add you to the project you requested.
I also want to apologise by the way for the lack of comments and general untidyness of the code…
