#2431 new enhancement

Create a public facing page to list all current external libraries

Reported by: Ipstenu Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Developer Hub Keywords:


We have https://meta.trac.wordpress.org/browser/sites/trunk/api.wordpress.org/public_html/core/credits/wp-47.php#L563 but that's a pretty bad place to send people.

We should list this somewhere, either on wordpress.org/about (somewhere...) or in the developer pages, as developers need to have a way to FIND this easily if we want them to stop including what we have already :)

The canonical source used to be the list on the wp_enqueue_script() page in the Codex and now on DevHub, but I don't think it's been maintained. I agree that it should probably be its own page and not hidden in a function reference.

The enqueue list is great for Javascript libraries, but not for things like PHPMailer etc. We need to list both :)

Can't expect people to magically know things!

We have https://wordpress.org/download/source/, which seems appropriate for this.

Currently, it links to https://code.trac.wordpress.org/browser/wordpress-sources (introduced in code:134), which is no longer maintained.
