StackList

http://stacklist.quickmediasolutions.com/


Update: There are already quite a few apps and libraries listed and the number is growing by the day. Don't put off listing yours!


StackList is a website that aims to fill the gap left by StackApps (see here) when it comes to listing your applications, tracking bugs, dealing with user support, etc.

StackList enables you to browse the applications listed on the site, vote on them, and submit your own applications. StackList uses OpenID for authentication.

Some of the existing features:

  • Keep track of bugs
  • Integration with other StackExchange sites
  • Screenshots for applications
  • Search for apps by name, etc.
  • Tag management, searching, etc.

Some of the planned features:

  • Accept some HTML in text entries.
  • Notification system
  • Feature requests

I strongly encourage everyone with an application here on StackApps to join StackList and list the application there.

  • July 6 - Fixed bug where long links would mess up page layout.
  • July 3 - Finished bug reports page. Added persistent logins. Added search bar. Links are now recognized and 'HTML-ified'

  • June 30 - Added library link beside logo. Added tags to apps.
  • June 29 - Launched site. Fixed OpenID bug.

Any feedback / comments / suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

  • I like the idea, george. And the site looks smooth. I am a bit unsure of the implications of competing with the sure to be forthcoming so app store. b.t.w. your oid is not accepting my google oid. – Sky Sanders Jun 30 '10 at 2:31
  • @code: [Sigh] - now I know why OpenID doesn't enjoy widespread use :) This will be looked into soon. As far as the SO app store... how do you know they are making one...? – Nathan Osman Jun 30 '10 at 2:35
  • how could they not be? so is like the borg. in any case, get your oid issues cleared up and i will add a few goodies. – Sky Sanders Jun 30 '10 at 2:39
  • @code: Okay. In order to debug this, I'm going to need to ask you to try signing in here. Then please copy the output to pastebin or something. (Or email it to me: admin@quickmediasolutions.com) – Nathan Osman Jun 30 '10 at 2:46
  • no need for pastebin. the redirect to google just says 'The page you requested is invalid.' – Sky Sanders Jun 30 '10 at 2:57
  • @code: Hmmm... you got me stumped. I updated my PHP OpenID library just in case... Is there any chance the endpoint you're using is malfunctioning in some way? Would it be possible to see a screenshot? – Nathan Osman Jun 30 '10 at 3:19
  • @code: After some Googling and such I think I might have fixed it. Please try it again and let me know how it goes. – Nathan Osman Jun 30 '10 at 3:38
  • @code: Are you going to submit some goodies? :) – Nathan Osman Jun 30 '10 at 4:29
  • well, your test page accepts my oid, but stacklist does not. – Sky Sanders Jun 30 '10 at 5:22
  • @code: Are you sure? I just tried putting 'https://www.google.com/accounts/o8/id' into the box and it takes me to the login page. Are you getting the same error as you were before? – Nathan Osman Jun 30 '10 at 5:46
  • Getting to the login page is no problem. The return trip is the problem. An error occurred during the sign-in process. Please try again – Sky Sanders Jun 30 '10 at 6:18
  • @code: Argh! Those are the hardest to debug. Okay, please try logging in again - this time it will give me a huge dump when there's an error which I can examine. Thanks! – Nathan Osman Jun 30 '10 at 6:29

    Can we have a place to list libraries too? – jjnguy Jun 30 '10 at 12:52
  • 1
    @jjnguy: ...and completed! You can now list your libraries / wrappers now. When you list your creation, just make sure 'library' is checked. – Nathan Osman Jun 30 '10 at 17:53

    you might want to give some context to the star ratings by showing the vote count. – Sky Sanders Jul 2 '10 at 7:33
