Perhaps this could also be integrated with an official repository where trusted contributors could upload the most recent version of their include file(s) and the IDE will list what's available and retrieve any the user selects.

This sounds like a very good idea. +1


I disagree. What if the interface or functionality changes? Suddenly all of your code breaks.

There is already a solution for this: it's called git. You can already share repositories like this through github.

Perhaps you're confusing this suggestion with the OP.

Having access to code repositories from within the IDE, for selective inclusion, is a very good idea, and has also been implemented in major development studios. The snippets and plugins could be tagged with version and platform compatibility information, and the selections would then be downloaded for static inclusion; not dynamically linked from the repository. Ultimately, it would be up to the programmer whether or not to use them.

Nothing changes, nothing breaks. :wink:

If there are new PB versions, incompatibilities are often found by chance.
I've seen this many times before.
Often it is very difficult to limit the error.
A stranger would probably despair if he fixed a hidden bug in BF when I'm away from PB
It's no secret that I'm not very happy with PB's support
It can't and won't work

Such a repository would merely comprise of third-party resources, and not an integral part of native PureBasic functionality. It's a matter of convenience, although the benefits far outweigh the occasional blip.

Use it, don't use it, we have a choice. :)
