Hello fellow developers.
Lately i was working on a project which needed a 3th party service to make life more easy.
I was thinking, why is there not a "Open Source Class" working group?
We could work together to grow the free classes, share code and help others.

Every time i get on a 3th party service page (web service or other) i see free php and other language classes/apis but never i've seen Real Studio classes. I'm in for a change of this! Are you willing to help, in return for your name inside each class?

It's suppose to be 100% free in use with a MIT license.

This will help everyone using the api from parse.com easily!

I'm looking for:
- 5 developers to test and maintain (with me and together) this api class.
- Someone to help create documentation (the code is fully commented) for easy usage.
- Working together on more projects for 3th parties to help grow real studio's free classes.
- It's not paid, free service for the general public. Your name will be in the classes you help create, questions can be made below.

Are you someone that has skills in developing classes with Real Studio?
Do you want to see more open source classes coming soon?

Here is a few that i'm working on:
-Parse.com REST api class (HTTPSecureSocket subclass, works already needs more testing)
-Free PayPal class (need more ideas and help for this one)

More to come.

Let me know if you have any ideas, time for testing, interest in helping or other purposes of help.
PS: if anyone has a repository only for this use, let me know!

Kind regards,
swort

I can't guarantee a lot of time, but I'd certainly be willing to help. I've enjoyed making free classes in the past, and doing it as a small group would certainly make larger projects more feasible.

Are you looking to purely work in expanding available API's, or create general-purpose classes, declare frameworks, etc...?

I've been using GitHub for a few months and I like it.

Great, so you know how to keep a repository for all classes on which the helping developers can share and modify code?
That would be apreciated if you can do so.

Let me know if you have tips on that please.

I'd be happy to spend some time on such a project. :)

As far as GitHub goes, the collaborators which just have to do some research on how version control works. If you're familiar with Git, then pushing to an online repository is the same as pushing to a local one. You wouldn't create "a repository for all classes", but a repository for each project. Your Parse.com project would be one, a module of collected functions another, the PayPal class another, etc — there's no benefit to trying to cram it all into a single repository. It can be done, but it'd be an organizational mess. :)

Otherwise I'm not sure what else you'd want to know about GitHub. :?

Hi Jason.

I basicly know how it works, the best would be one repository for each class/module.
It's best to call them extentions i think. The extentions must be made from open source or free to use sdk's or made by the group.
The purpose is not to do projects that's already found around. That would be better to maintain such (already around) projects, like DutchTools...

If anyone has a repository as "sharon0" has, i would be happy to be invited so i can put some projects on there..;)

Anyone with a GitHub account that wants to collaborate, please let me know your account name (PM).
You'll be able to post content and change the wiki and use the repositories to make changes.

I sure hope we can put all the free MIT license extentions, classes and modules on one site.
That would help make management much easier and controlled.
If Real Software feels an interest for it, they sure can use them to build it inside Real Studio as native classes when they are completed and if they are maintained.

Please let me know if you have a github account.

Well github is pretty easy (if you know it haha).
You create an account, let me know your account name and i invite you as collaborator.

GitHub has a windows (metro style) program which helps you share and use/copy/clone repositories.
You can clone/use all repositories that are public, but if you want to make changes to the projects/wiki then you need to be a collaborator or administrator for that repository.

Basicly everyone who has the latest Real Studio could be a collaborator on the projects i provide (with the help of others above).
