[solved]:best way to offer a mod(where or how i offer files for upload

by tkerwel » Post

update:

i will use sourceforge, get to many failures in github and github is a bit to complicated for a newbie like me.

this thread can be closed by a moderator if needed


*******************************************
i am not sure what is the best way to offer a mod.

should i use something like MediaFire or should i use github.

What you guys think ist the best way to offer a mod?

Thanks in advance for your answers....

Using VCS is better, because:
1) People can see your code just in browser and find bugs simply.
2) github, bitbucket and others can offer direct download links. Mediafire and similar sites are very uncomfortable, especially when you try to download files to the server in console.

And yes, you need to use VCS in all of your projects. If you code enough, you should already understand this :)

Version Control System. That's git, mercurial, svn and others.

shame on me......

working since 12 years as projektmanager and testmanager in customsoftware.....and i never heard the shortletters VCS..

of course i am working in the job with something similar, just its not public and in the internet.

sadly i am not that deep into coding anymore, so this (minetest) give me a chance to got back to the roots...and thats a long way back *lol*

i think in the moment i will choose github, cause thats the easiest way to install ...

VCS is kinda useless for small projects. Unless you want to make a really, really big mod you usually don't need it - just use mediafire or omploader.

It helps to track changes, show your code to others and make downloads. And you only have to make commits from time to time (1 simple command). Why don't mod developers use that?

For MarkTracuer:

Why Gitorious?

This sounds way, way way way better.

no way ....

afer that kim dotcom will earn lots of money with minetest, cause he stole the code and sell it as his idea.....

.... or worse ..... FBI will see that all minetester are relatives of bin laden....

back to topic, i will use github....fighting in the moment with this, at least i was already able to put a readme file and start the wiki there....

hard for an old man to catch up with new thins *lol*
