I'm reviving this old thread, because it has been on my mind lately. I
keep an eye on this mailing list, but it seems that not all extension
authors like to announce their creations here.
Github has an RSS feed for all repositories:
But how to get a better signal to noise ratio...?
I thought Google Reader might have some sort of filtering function,
like the rules you can apply in GMail, but it seems to be missing that
feature. So I searched, and discovered FeedRinse. This service offers
RSS filtering for free.
I've setup a feed:
with the following rules:
Allow the post if all the following conditions are met:
title contains radiant
title contains extension
This should catch any extensions published on github using the
recommended naming convention. It has some fairly major blind spots,
but it should help to keep you in the loop. Feel free to subscribe to
Since I created it, it has caught the following:

I see all this excitement about GitHub. It's great that everyone
in their 2¢. It's like stepping on the gas. Now how about that
What I don't get is how anyone can keep track of it. Before
GitHub, it was
hard enough to track all the extensions and which one went with
version of code base. Now it seems like an impossible task.
haven't been able to read the whole 'Summer Reboot Documentation'
I don't know if anyone has addressed this in there.
It seems to me that two things are needed to try to get this under
for new people coming on the scene, or those who can't keep up
1) Some kind of news feed
2) Someone to take the news feed and compile it into the current
the world' - weekly maybe?
... or am I out in left field?
What I'm thinking of as a news feed would be something like this...
July 16 - John started on the uber_fu extension
July 16 - Tony released the fork of the uber_mailer extension
July 15 - Jenna released the google_maps extension
July 13 - Tony started a fork of the uber_mailer extension
July 10 - Jenna started the google_maps extension
How to make that happen? beats me. Tag blog entries with
'radiantcmsnewsfeed' and somehow find them and aggregate them into
GitHub provides this already. You can watch any repo or user you
viewing your dashboard, you get a newsroll of what's happened in
or users you've been watching. Here's what mine looks like:
I think the bigger problem is how one finds these extensions. There
are certainly some on github that I've never seen.
Chris, there is an extension registry in the works that can serve as
a central location for information about extensions. I was
attempting to get it up and running last night in a public place but
ran into some errors. The next release of Radiant will have a
feature built in to automatically install extensions pulled from the
info in the registry.
The code for the registry is under the radiant user at github
One thing I've thought about adding to the registry is the ability
for users to vote up or down on extensions so that you'd be able to
see what some people think about the extensions there.
