There's no one way. Here's a recipe you can use: Make a proper app post here on StackApps. See How to list your application/library/wrapper/script here. Look for posts on Meta Stack Overflow (MSO) and/or on Meta Stack Exchange (MSE) where your app might make part of a good answer. If you find such posts, make proper answer(s) to them -- linking both to the ...

Make sure that you have coded all the bits that you can do first. This ensures that any request for help is genuine. If the project idea is any good, you should find that, although you can't get what you want, you can get what you need. Have you tried Microsoft's CodePlex. From here you can create a 'publishable', and also advertise (for free) job ...

This is so freakin' AWESOME - thanks for building this! As far as I know this is the ONLY way to search your favorites now.

(works great in Chrome) Would you consider adding tag search like in the S.O. search engine (surrounded by brackets like [python])? The tag ...

The case sensitivity in the error message turns out to be the culprit. I had to disable case sensitive table names in MySQL on a linux host. In the my.cnf, add lower_case_table_names = 1. Restart MySQL. This bypasses the case sensitivity of the underlying file system for storing the MySQL data. I was on the right track by trying to maually create the ...
