Submit a new WP.org project

Hallo I want to know how I could submit a new project for wordpress.org. I've been working on a solution online for the last few weeks. I have set up my own platform based on React.js. This is about a Gutenberg Block Online Generator. I would like to make this platform available to the community and the WordPress organisation.


PS: This is a first alpha version and still WIP.

Hi @Benjamin_Zekavica!

Can you be a little bit more specific on what you mean by "submit a new project for wordpress.org"?

Are you hoping that wordpress.org hosts the application and links its somewhere?

Right now the idea is to add this as a generator on the wordpress.org platform. My idea is to offer the developers a simple way to build the blocks via a web interface. By clicking and maybe also with a drag and drop setup.

The developers then copy the generated code and integrate them in the backend (themes or plugins) themselves. Many of the WordPress developers were excited by the idea, and they would also appreciate being able to use a platform as a generator for facilitation.

I would like to create a subpage on the WordPress.org site where the generator will be there and also help other developers to expand the idea and make it even better.
It would be really great if the WordPress Organisation could help and expand the idea.

Although I'm not a representative of WordPress or its stance on integrating tooling into .org, I can't think of a case where something like this was added.

There are many tools that are part of the WordPress community that could potentially be added to the website but it would make for a very complicated website and a real burden to manage (tools become irrelevant, unmaintained, etc...). Since this project is more closely related to Gutenberg and its support for patterns, GitHub https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg may be a better place to talk about it.

For example, there is tooling for creating blocks in the project.
