Now that we can share our SmartThings apps are there any thoughts on how we can collaborate together? I mean sure, we can go find code to rip off from another shared app and build our own app to do something but we would never collaboratively improve on a single app.
I ask this because it seems I’ve created an app that was already created by @jnovack which auto locks doors after unlock on a timer.
@jnovack if you are out there, my app has a few more configuration options (Lock It After A While) so I’m not sure how or if you’d like to collaborate, maybe on your Github repo (https://github.com/smartthings-users/smartapp.auto-lock-door/blob/master/auto-lock-door.smartapp.groovy). My code is in the shared code pile.
It’d be nice to set some conventions (especially for app naming so we can easily find duplicates). Please chime in.
– Edit –
Another random thought, almost like this forum system searches for related topics before you attempt to create a new one, it’d be cool if the dev system attempted to find a preexisting app with a similar name that may do what you were going to build already.
