Thursday, November 8th, 2007 – The Prototype extensions repository

Category: Announcements, Prototype

Hot on the heels of the triple-threat Prototype news blast from yesterday comes more big news. Juriy Zaytsev & Maxim Chernyak officially launched, the Prototype extensions repository and library. The intention is to provide a central place to organize plugins for the Prototype community.

With Scripteka you can:

  • View an extensive library of useful (or useless) prototype based extensions
  • Rate and use rating to find the coolest scripts out there
  • Submit your own creations and get community feedback
  • Subscribe to the newest additions to the library

From my discussion with Juriy over IM, he was extremely excited about all of the new Prototype news and felt this was a natural extension to the library:

This is what prototype community have been waiting for for a long time, to have all scripts in one place

The site also features a list of the latest submissions as well as the most popular extensions on the site.

is there a reason why the scripteka page requires http authentication?

Sure would be nice if that site worked under IE6… doh!

I like that fact that it randomizes a widget every time I go to the site. That’s a nice effect. But it SHOULD NOT give me a randomized widget when I specify one in the url. For example, I just tried to give a buddy a link to and when he clicked the link it randomized and instead gave him That makes it kinda hard to share the links.

Guys, thanks for a positive feedback.
I just want to say a big thanks to mx_ who has been spending countless hours hacking drupal on the back-end. Without his help this would have never happened.
We also know about the issue with IE6 rendering and are working to eliminate all the glitches. The reason why some things might be a little buggy is because we really wanted to push it together with prototype 1.6 final announcement. This is initial release and future versions will definitely be more feature complete.

Grats Juriy. Really nice work for the community.

We removed hashes (back button support) since they seemed to make go crazy. Also there’s now a permalink for each script and rating system is more precise.
