Vanilla Addons Now Even Open Sourcier

  • Searching & Browsing addons has been improved, with new options for sorting and filtering by Vanilla version
  • Users can now upload screenshots and icons for their addons
  • Vanilla 2 addons are not marked as Vanilla 1 addons when new versions are uploaded
  • Paging works properly past the second page of results when browsing addons

But that’s not all, we’ve also taken another giant step towards open sourceyness by making the entire addons application available at GitHub. Now anyone from the Vanilla community can get a copy of the addons application, enable it on their local garden installation, implement new features, and send us pull requests so we can get your features into the core application faster and easier.

We can’t wait to see what you guys come up with! Oh, and remember, you don’t have to change the core if you don’t want to – you can submit plugins for the addons site, as well. One feature that we’d love to see is a tab for the user profile pages that shows which addons a user has created. Feel free to tackle that one if it interests you 🙂

Welcome to the new age of Vanilla – where the community truly drives the product.
