Road Runner Plugin Manager Online! Submit Your Plugins Now!
I'm in the process of creating a plugin which serves a simple purpose... to organize and browse available RR plugins from within RR. Plugins will be able to organized into one place, and i'm using categories to further sort them. When its complete, you'll be able to search for, download, and potentially install RR plugins from within RR.
Now of COURSE this plugin wont work without the support of plugin developers. The way i'm coding will allow each developer to use there own hosting and continue to develop in there own language of choice. Adding a plugin to the browser will be simple and require small number of items to be sent to me. As of now only the following is required:
1. Filename (.dll name)
2. Description of plugin
3. Version Number
4. Download Link
5. (added) Developer Name (or user id whatever)
Optionally, developers can provide a sample image to be displayed within the browser. The database file will be kept online and the plugin will request access directly to that file if internet is detected. Hopefully this will help new users understand plugins and simplify the process.
So I need some feedback before i get too far into this thing. Does it sound like something developers will support? Should there be more information added to the database file? So far i have two categories planned... entertainment and utilities. Any other categories needed? Any feedback now would be appreciated in the long run.
here's a screenie of what i have so far....
