Adding a project

Once logged in you should see an option to add a project on the SolderPad homepage and under your profile. You can navigate to your profile by clicking on your sign-in at the top right of the page.

Project Title

This should be a short but descriptive title and can be up to 32 characters in length.

Subtitle

A single line description for the project.

Description

This should be a more detailed description of no more than a few paragraphs. Markdown flavoured text is supported.

Homepage

A name and URL for the project’s homepage. If the SolderPad page will be the homepage don’t enter anything here.

This could be a person, persons, company or some combination thereof, but must indicate who holds the copyright(s) in the project.

If you’ve cloned the project from elsewhere, details should be available at the source and should also be included with the project files.

Tags

Here you can enter a comma separated list of tags. These can contain spaces and should be selected so as to make it easy to find your project based on its key characteristics.

If you’re not sure what to enter we suggest having a look at the existing tags that are in use, and we also maintain a list of some useful tags.

Licence

If you are unsure as to which licence to select see project licensing.
