Free Software Directory:Features/Sample projects
This is one of the proposed features to this site.
The idea is to give a space to share projects that people have worked on to show how given program can be used, with examples. It can also provide screen shots, explanatory text, embedded audio/video, howtos, sample scripts, and ways to combine different free programs for a given project. Sharing downloadable project files for reuse and re-hacking will be highly encouraged.
- Make the template for the layout of this kind of integrated media on a tab for a program's info page
- On the main page, list some of the tutorials in the margin, or somewhere convenient.
- Allow for tutorial links to other websites, in addition to, or in place of local tutorials
- In the future, make one or more of these entries before a package is featured on the main page.
- Give an icon in browsing mode if one of these entries is available for this program.
- Consider using an advanced permissions system in the future to get fuller community involvement.
