We've made a few changes and additions from the Processing language:
Feel free to write code and save it to your account. If you wish to feature the code on the main /cs page you'll need to follow the code guidelines and go through a review.
In addition to that, we have a few additional rules:
Some specific guides for how to implement common features:
Simplicity over DRYness / best practices
When making Programs that you want to be featured on /cs, the goal is to use the fewest number of programming concepts possible to accomplish your goal (within reason).
For example - favor iteration over recursion and avoid iteration altogether if you're doing something a fixed number of times. For instance, if you're checking adjacent coordinates, use 4 function calls instead of iterating over
We have a workflow for doing content review. After you've written up your code please visit the following Trello board and add a link to your code in the "Needs Review" column:
After doing this someone will provide feedback on your code by leaving comments on the code page itself.
If you wish to record audio for your code you can do so by hitting the Record button (although, right now only developers have access to this feature). If you've recorded some audio - or (even better) you've recorded the key strokes you're going to do and pair it with a rough transcript of what you'll say - move your link into the Audio review column. After that review you can now feel free to make your code as Published or Tutorial. Make sure you set a difficulty level as well!
When you're ready to publish your exploration, you can change go to "Developer Only Settings" and change the category to official. You'll need to choose a difficulty, and you should probably also add some tags so your exploration is filterable. Look at the topic page to see what tags already exist, or make new ones. Here are some guidelines for choosing a difficulty:
Don't forget to click "Save" when you're done!
