We’ve recently been trying to make QuPath more developer-friendly. As a start, we’ve rewritten our build scripts and added GitHub Actions. Now we’d like to host the core jars in a Maven-friendly way, and javadocs in a human-friendly way.
My initial idea was to hack together something with GitHub packages and GitHub pages. However, after setting it up GitHub packages I finally understood they really do mean that authentication is required just to install a package – which means that a developer needs to generate a Personal Access Token before they can begin. The end result is that it actually raises the bar to building the software.
I’ve seen lots of complaints about this, but no clear indication if/when it will change.
Before taking the plunge to Maven Central, I wanted to check what folks here were doing, which led me to Bintray alternative?
Therefore, I wanted to ask: would maven.scijava.org be an option for QuPath?
I totally understand if not (we’re Gradle-based and aren’t inheriting from
pom-scijava), but I’d appreciate any tips / advice / options for where we should be.
