Contribute Slick?

chrismillar
At AdaptTo, I had a few conversations about contributing Slick [0] to
Apache Sling. Is this something the community is interested in? If so, I'd
like to start that process. Whether it be part of a contrib project or a
sample project.

There would be things I would like to clean up before hand. Some
auto-generated try / catches, add unit tests, and get the Sling 9 version
thoroughly tested are just a few.

If you have thoughts on this, please share them.

Thanks!
Chris

I think it would be a great contribution and it's definitely welcome.
Thanks for offering. I would assume that the contribution to Sling might
get you even more feedback and contributors.

What I personally would love to have, is splitting Slick up into some
modules. For example, your front page to change the admin password could
be of general interest for any Sling based installation. Same is for the
UI to create users. This could be shared between different demos. I
always planned to have something like this for the Slingshot sample, but
never got to it.

But this is just dreaming and not really required for the contribution
itself.

Regards

Carsten

Hi,

I second that. What sling needs most is a big community that can create
a marketplace like Wordpress has.

A place where you can publish plugins and modules that users can install
and that work out of the box.

Having a comunity and a marketplace is a big step forward for adoption
by non-developers.

Regards,

Hi Nicolas,

we "could" have Azure quickstart Templates or similar that make it pretty
easy to roll out a predefined sling enviroment (see
https://github.com/Azure/azure-quickstart-templates for tons of existing
examples).

Cheers
Dominik

I don't think we can offer hosting to third parties, but we can have a
VM to run our own instance as a demo, if someone volunteers to
maintain that.

Big +1 on accepting a Slick Contribution.
