Overview

The Progress Community code share functionality offers community users the ability to share, discuss and collaborate on their code share project repository contributions from within the Progress Community.

The aim is to facilitate like minded members to collaborate within the Progress Community on projects that they have stored in code share repositories such as GitHub, Bitbucket, Google Code or OE Hive. Members can choose the platform of their choice, manage their repositories on any of these hosted solutions and at the same time expose your projects within the Progress Community.
 
The interface to facilitate this in the community is easy to use and we strongly encourage you to try it and share your projects.

Getting Started

Code share is easily accessible from the Community homepage via the “Code Share” Tab.

When a user clicks on this tab, the most recent code share group posts are displayed in chronological order. You can click on any of the post link to be taken to the code share catalogue within the code share group.

To go to the code share group page from the Community homepage, click on “See All Projects”:
