The Laravel News site has posted the latest part of their "Building a Laravel Translation Package" series focusing on a pre-launch checklist of items to get in place before it's finally released.
In the last part of the series, we finished up building the Laravel Translation package. With this completed, we are ready to start thinking about releasing the it to the world. However, before we do, there are few important steps we need to take.
The post covers some of the final non-code items to take care of:
- Good documentation
- Defining contribution guidelines
- Providing issue templates for easier reporting of bugs/issues by others
- Selecting a license
- Setting up continuous integration for running tests, checking code style, etc.
Each item in the list includes a brief summary of what's involved and, for some, links to other resources and tools that can help get it accomplished.
