I built an app with the ArcGIS Javascript API and made it available on GitHub.

Where would be an appropriate place to tell GIS users/developers about it?

  • Welcome to GIS SE! In a moment I will try to provide an Answer to your Question but in the meantime I have removed the link to your app on GitHub because it was effectively an advertisement for your work.

  • BTW +1 Although here is not the place to share I think it is a good place to ask about where to share.

You might try twitter - there's an active community of Esri JavaScript developers. I've created a (somewhat) maintained list here:


Some tips about sharing:

  • Make sure you have a good README that explains what the app does, what problem it solves, and how developers can get install/use it
  • It's best if you can include a live link to the app so people can see how it's supposed to work

If you have your own blog, that's a good place to make a post on the back story behind the app, why you developed it, etc (as opposed to the GitHub README, which should be focused on the 'what' and 'how').

  • Thanks for the info. Are you sure that twitter link is right? I keep getting "page not found." Commented Jun 15, 2014 at 15:57
  • Hm... the list is shared publicly, and I asked a colleague to try the link and it worked for them. Can't figure out why it doesn't work for you.

In a blog posting, now almost 6 years old, Esri advertised its ArcGIS JavaScript Code Gallery as being the place to do this.

The code gallery is a place where you can highlight your work

However, if you try to follow that link you will get:

Page Not Found

I thought its replacement page might be here but that seems to be a page only for Esri's own samples.
