Only use this text field for examples — otherwise leave it empty. A sentence or two is not enough to warrant the use of this field, the content of which will be displayed on its own page separate from the package list. Markdown, MathJax ($\LaTeX$) equations and HTML may be used to style the post.

API & RSS

There are two API functions:

  • http://packagedata.net/index.php/api/packages returns data about all the packages on the site.
  • http://packagedata.net/index.php/api/history/id returns history information about a package, where id can be found out from the previous API function.

There are also two RSS feeds:

Installing Mathematica packages

Best practice is to put packages (.m/.wl files and dependencies) in the directory FileNameJoin[{$UserBaseDirectory, "Applications"}]. Mathematica has a built-in tool for placing .m files, .wl files or files in a .zip archive in that directory, called "Install" under the menu "File". The main benefit of using said directory for packages is that when a new Mathematica version is installed, packages will automatically be available.
