Adding your project
Add your project to
_data/projects.yml, and then submit a pull request.
Place your project where it belongs in alphabetical order.
Your project's summary should be under 140 characters (shorter is better).
If your project has an icon, upload it to
The most basic possible configuration:
MyProject: github: my-org/my-repo author: John Doe summary: A brief (<140 character) description of my project.
A real project with such an entry:
C3: github: c3lang/c3 author: Christoffer Lernö # Wrap lines over 80 characters long. summary: > An evolution of C, adding modules, error handling and semantic macros.
A more typical project:
Plasma: website: https://plasmalang.org/ github: PlasmaLang/Plasma # Place your icon in `images/lang/`. # Non-white SVGs or transparent PNGs are preferred. # If you are concerned about licensing issues with your language's icon, # you may link to it on an external site using a normal URL. icon: plasma.png # icon: https://example.com/icon/plasma.png author: name: Paul Bone website: https://paul.bone.id.au/ summary: > A language that balances functional and imperative programming, and has state-of-the-art concurrency and parallelism features.
A project with two contributors:
Example: website: https://example.com authors: - arthur - name: Jess Writer website: https://jwriter.example.com - zeus94 summary: Currently, no real project uses `authors`.
A project which prefers not to single out contributors:
Monte: website: https://monte.readthedocs.io/en/latest/index.html github: monte-language freenode: monte organization: name: The Monte authors # This page should include a list of the people involved. # Monte doesn't have a dedicated list, so the LICENSE file will suffice. website: https://github.com/monte-language/monte/blob/master/LICENSE summary: A dynamic programming language inspired by Python and E.
A large project, only one contributor of which is part of our community:
Mercury: website: https://mercurylang.org/ github: Mercury-Language/mercury icon: mercury.png organization: name: many website: https://mercurylang.org/development/people.html # This generated authorship list will be `many, including Paul Bone`. # The `including` bit is inserted automatically. # You may also use `authors`. author: name: Paul Bone website: https://paul.bone.id.au/ summary: > A logic/functional programming language with advanced static analysis and error detection features.
Every single community type:
MyProject: # You should include at least an author name and a website or repository. website: https://kittenlang.org github: inko-lang/inko gitlab: my-org/my-repo # Make sure you don't have too many icons, or they won't all fit. # I'd recommend no more than two: one forum-like service (e.g. reddit, discourse) # and one chat-like service (e.g. freenode, matrix). # If you're really over more services than that, I'd personally recommend reconsidering; # a fragmented community isn't good for anybody. # If you use a service that isn't listed here, just open an issue, and I'll add it. reddit: futhark # for /r/futhark discourse: https://discourse.inko-lang.org/ discord: 4Kjt3ZE # your invite code, as in https://discord.gg/4Kjt3ZE matrix: +inko:matrix.org # or use a # for a channel instead of a group gitter: pikelet-lang/Lobby # as in https://gitter.im/pikelet-lang/Lobby freenode: fennel # for #fennel on Freenode twitter: rebuild_lang # for @rebuild_lang author: Person
