How to add a script

  1. Fork this repository, create a new branch and clone it

    git clone<user>/scripts.git
    cd scripts
    git checkout <branch>
  2. Add the local checkout as a local repository in Phoenicis (see instructions)

  3. Select the right category for the application

    • Accessories
    • Development
    • Games
    • Graphics
    • Internet
    • Multimedia
    • Office
    • Other
    • Science
  4. Create a new folder for your script inside that category. The folder structure should be:

    └── application-name
        ├── script-name
        │   ├── script.js
        │   └── script.json
        ├── miniatures
        │   └── main.png
        └── application.json

    Typically, script-name will be something like "Steam", "Online" or "v1.2".

    Even if the application name contains ®, ™ or the like, you should not use it in the folder name.

  5. Fill the files:

    • script.js: actual installation script
    • script.json: describes the installation script
      "scriptName": "Online",
      "compatibleOperatingSystems": ["MACOSX", "LINUX"],
      "testingOperatingSystems": [],
      "free": true,
      "requiresPatch": false
    • main.png: application icon (400px x 300px)
    • application.json: describes the application
      "name":	"Steam",
      "description": "Application description"
  6. Verify changes:

    • Ensure that the changes fulfill the code quality requirements and the files are formatted correctly (see tools).
  7. Create a pull request:

    • Please create one pull request per script if you want to commit multiple scripts.
    • use the following naming convention
      • for a new script: "Add <application name>" (e.g. "Add 7-zip")
      • for an updated script: "Update <application name> <what changed>" (e.g. "Update 7-zip to use Wine 2.1")
