Default ReaPack FAQ Sticky?

Could we create a FAQ sticky of best practices so noobs like myself can learn how to make scripts available via ReaPack without making a mess? I've searched a lot but have found different (possibly conflicting) info strewn about, and I'm still unclear about things such as:
  • Should I upload to the ReaTeam/ReaScripts repository or create my own repository?
  • Is there a preferred or standardized method for making scripts available?
  • I have headers in my script, but the uploader seems to add additional header content (or should I use this instead of my own header data?
  • etc (I'm sure there are better questions than these)

The main doc for package is on reapack-index wiki,



and the sticky thread for reapack related question for dev already exists:




https://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=169127


but to answer quickly


  • It depends on how you want to share and manage your code. Specific scripts, huge package, frequent updates etc may be beyter on your own repo.
  • reapack compatible github repo?

Okay, I managed to get my scripts loaded up to GitHub... and my repository link works:

https://raw.githubusercontent.com/JR...ster/index.xml

But now I'm out of steam and confused as hell as to how to make them available with the ReaTeam stuff. Please advise... though I'm done for the night since I can hardly see straight. ;p

BTW, I have about a dozen tabs open from trying to figure this out via the present crumb trail, which is why I thought a nice FAQ would be helpful to ease the "point of entry" as it's pretty rough atm (with all due love & respect). I'd be happy to help except I don't really understand what I did... terminal... homebrew... ruby... GitHub desktop... index.xml... readme.md...

Do you mean uploading them to the ReaTeam script repository? The web tool for that is at https://reapack.com/upload.

For a custom repository, index.xml generation can be fully automated using the template at https://github.com/cfillion/reapack-repository-template.

I can confirm as a total noob at git that using this template at github is easy to setup! It was a really cool move! Thanks!!!

@daniellumertz Did you do all the homebrew stuff or was the only thing necessary to copy the template (per instructions)?

Also, just to clarify, the web tool is the method for ReaTeam inclusion? If so, is having my own repository entirely redundant?
