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 23 - Added RSS feeds to the site.
  • July 16 - Completed the initial part of the API. Details here.
  • July 11 - Created a page to view apps with a certain tag.
  • 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'
  • July 2 - Finished user profile pages including integration with SE sites. Removed ability to vote for one's own apps and removed such votes. App's rating shows total votes now. Completed 90% of 'bug management' code.
  • July 1 - Added ability to edit apps that have been added. Added logo / screenshot to apps. Partially added user profile page.
  • 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. Jun 30, 2010 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...? Jun 30, 2010 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. Jun 30, 2010 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: [email protected]) Jun 30, 2010 at 2:46
  • no need for pastebin. the redirect to google just says 'The page you requested is invalid.' Jun 30, 2010 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? Jun 30, 2010 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. Jun 30, 2010 at 3:38
  • @code: Are you going to submit some goodies? :) Jun 30, 2010 at 4:29
  • well, your test page accepts my oid, but stacklist does not. Jun 30, 2010 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? Jun 30, 2010 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 Jun 30, 2010 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! Jun 30, 2010 at 6:29

    @jjnguy: ...and completed! You can now list your libraries / wrappers now. When you list your creation, just make sure 'library' is checked. Jun 30, 2010 at 17:53

    you might want to give some context to the star ratings by showing the vote count. Jul 2, 2010 at 7:33
