We think the correct answer has to involve the old extensions site still existing


Heck yes.

Where is that "Public Library" site? Is it already set up?


Quoted because I've already asked this and got no answer. I get from the following post that, as I'd suspected (but hadn't seen confirmed), the Windows version of Inform can't access it yet. But is it therefore unaccessible, or accessible like a normal website?

You can download them from http://www.emshort.com/pl/payloads/

So does that mean that that link is the Public Library? Or is it a way to access it for non-Mac users?

EDIT - Nevermind, got my answer:

http://www.emshort.com/pl/

EDIT 2 - And I now understand how it works, and thank you for your link which gives me access to the actual extensions.

The Public Library lists a new version of Glulx Entry Points for download, but there is actually no version of GEP in the library payloads directories. This isn't particularly important, since the new version is included in Inform, but should you delete the built-in one somehow, it is a bit misleading.

Im on mac osx, and i just went from 6 to 7, and i have a major problem... no documentation... whilst in the extension tab, clicking on any extension does nothing. the public library tab has the list of extensions as well, with no way to get to the documentation. I have to navigate to the inform webpage and read the documentation there, which is just...super inconvenient for everyone. worst part is, all built in documentation isn't even available on the site... i know this is open source, so getting this fixed will probably be difficult, however, maybe there is a new setting im unaware of? i think its highly unlikely that there could have been this big an oversight. anyone?

hi,

i'm a complete newb but i'm finding all the documentation in the new inform7 to be really detailed and easy to follow.

but i would request that the extension pages on the inform 7 site put a prominent caveat that a lot of the extensions listed on that site is currently incompatible with the current version of inform 7.

i finally found the reason for the compile failures while googling and finding this site but it cost me a lot of frustrating hours where i was wondering if i was doing something wrong. and especially since those extensions are on the home page, some kind of warning should be prominently featured there... or even better, to have a separate page for extensions that are known to work with the latest version.

Hi Kindlecrasher,

There actually is a new site for 6L02-compatible extensions, called the Public Library. The plan is to eventually connect to this site from within the Inform 7 program itself and allow users to download extensions that way, but that feature is still Mac-only for now.

You can also find many experimental versions of extensions at the I7 Github. Unfortunately the device I'm on now will not let me copy and paste, so I can't post the links, but they should be in the other sticky thread.

EDIT: I imagine the Public Library will be mentioned in the documentation as well once it's available for all platforms. Right now you can download the extensions without using the IDE if you're on Windows or Linux, the link should be in the other thread as well.
