Online Library for PlugIns like Stenciltown?


#1

Is there a online library for PlugIns like the Stenciltown, where I can get and share Plugins and Automation Scripts?

There are some that Sal made up at https://www.omni-automation.com including examples and templates, but I don’t think we have the support in the forums to upload plug-ins, .omnijs, .omnigrafflejs, or other scripting files. All that we could share here would be code (not files). Everyone who would like to request such a place be created, please email us at omnigraffle@omnigroup.com.

Thanks,

Just an idea, what about a general market/donorplace for scripts, templates and other things connected to the omni-programs? Lika a simple app store meets fivrr. Where people could call for/order scripts that eventually other coders in the community could write for a price/donations, but also a place where people that have done a script/template/workflow/and so on could upload them in a easy to find way.

Here’s a great example how others do it: https://www.sketch.com/extensions/plugins/

Every card I clicked on simply links to a Github repo. This can be implemented in a couple of hours, of course, BC does not have to host any files on their site, all responsibility remains with the plugin developer.

As I just found out, BC even made their JS API docs open source and simply published it as a Github page).

I don’t think it is a good idea to ask people to send you emails when there is a forum. Building a community is not about your preferred way of contact, it’s about meeting your users where they share their thoughts and needs.

I might be mistaken, but I believe that attitude to a feature that can is really cheap to implement and test in the real world in a couple of days, but instead sits here waiting for half a year, is contributing to the fact that Sketch has around 630 plugins, and all there is for OmniGraffle is “some that Sal made up”.

I was curious how long it would really take to hack something together, so I just did it.
