Stack Apps is a question and answer site for apps, scripts, and development with the Stack Exchange API. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Inspired by the obvious internet capabilities of list-packages and its function (similar to dired et al.) (and this question), I got a crazy idea to try to make a full-blown Emacs mode for SE sites.

For those interested in helping, check out the GitHub repository.

If you think it is so cool, I don't see why you don't just write it. :) –  11684 Mar 1 '13 at 11:21
@11684 I am. ;) –  Sean Allred Mar 1 '13 at 11:28
Nice! I have a (slightly unrelated) question (but you seem to be the only one online at the time): what do you use as 'Application Website'? (I mean the thing you have to type in when registering, "where users can go to read about your application".) I want to write an app to and need to register to add authentication, but I don't want to make a website for that app (I'm not even sure if I'll ever publish it) and that field is required. Did you use the GitHub page of your app? –  11684 Mar 1 '13 at 11:31
In the absence of a bona-fide website, the Github page is more than apt. However, you should consider making a subsection of your own Github page. –  Sean Allred Mar 1 '13 at 11:34
What is 'apt'? (Trying to keep my knowledge of SE abbreviations up to date) –  11684 Mar 1 '13 at 12:40
define:apt ;) –  Sean Allred Mar 1 '13 at 12:42
I had to Google this to see what crazy bastard has already thought of it and implemented it. Bravo sir –  user202930 Mar 19 at 17:36
@user202930 XD work has definitely stalled for my thesis, but I hope to get back to the project this summer. No promises, but I hope to at least have basic functionality (reading questions) up by Christmas. –  Sean Allred Mar 19 at 18:55
Very nice. I was looking for an SO chat client for emacs like circe, but I would really like this as well. –  Steve Buzonas Jun 27 at 4:10
Written in org-mode inline with the documentation is brilliant. One thing, stack-api.el builds to elisp and stack-mode.el ends up in emacs-lisp –  Steve Buzonas Jun 27 at 4:43
@SteveBuzonas It's called 'literate programming' and I'm a huge fan :) I'll fix that tangling issue right quick—just graduated/started a new job/new apartment so things are still wonky around here :) –  Sean Allred Jun 27 at 12:21
