Complete List of Roon Extensions


(Edward) #1

Is there a complete and comprehensive list of ALL the Roon Extensions?


#2

Not to my knowledge. I check https://github.com/search?p=1&q=roon-extensions&type=Repositories from time to time, just because I imagine that any developer who writes roon extensions will post them there.

I’m curious to find out if there are any more!

If this is something Roon supports, it would make sense for them to at least create a sticky with a list of Extensions. Not mandatory but more like common courtesy.

To go a step above, why not have them listed ‘In Roon’ so users can just enable them ie install them from Roon.

Don’t treat the Extensions like a Step-Child.:persevere:

I agree it would be useful to have some list of extensions inactive development.

If nothing more it might stop a duplicate of effort by people seeking to make an extension. I mean, there are so many reasons why Roon needs to get on the ball and take care of this…

I started a community project to simplify extension distribution. The Extension Repository doesn’t include all that is available but I try to get as many as possible in.

There are two primary methods for extension distribution, the first is source level distribution via npm/GitHub, the second is “package” distribution via DockerHub. The Extension Manager currently only supports the first method but I am working on an update to also support Docker containers, allowing more extensions to be included.

I might repurpose the Repository page of the Wiki, to list all existing extensions and provide at least a link if it is not directly supported by the manager. Would like to hear if this is considered useful. Alternative location would be the Roon Knowledge Base…
