Can you please provide some context on why you think this is relevant to share? The page says it’s been unmaintained for nearly 6 years, naming ELPA and MELPA as successors. I clicked on this but I’m really struggling to see what, if any, useful things I can learn here.
Primarily for historical reasons. I haven’t looked through all of these yet, but certainly not everything is on (M)ELPA yet, and other examples might have a didactic value.
It wasn’t a text, so I didn’t had the historical tag, but maybe it might make sense?
Thanks. I suggested the historical tag, and also a “(2014)” suffix to the title.
This is a list of 1270 individual emacs lisp files. Neat.
The list was compiled in 2014, but the first sample I picked is itself from 1997. (Granted, I didn’t pick randomly, I was looking for an old one. I only glanced over the first 11 URLs…)
There are more projects here than there are authors… Here are the top ten most prolific authors:
101 Drew Adams
54 Noah Friedman
22 Nikolaj Schumacher
19 Dave Pearson
19 Alex Schroeder
17 Kevin Ryde
17 John Wiegley
16 Dave Love
15 Neil W. Van Dyke
14 Kevin A. Burton
…Some of those names are kinda familiar I guess? Which lead me to discover that emacs package authors have fans and their fans love them. Neat.
My lobste.rs packages for helm and ivy are not listed, color me disappointed 😬
