While the SFML forum provides a section for projects, it happens too often that nice projects get lost in the depth of that sub-forum or that the archive with the game executable or source code gets deleted overtime. With the SFML Projects website we want to provide a platform to host, share and archive projects that were made with or for SFML.

  • SFML Projects is open source and hosted on GitHub. If people are eager to help out, I'll gladly add them as contributors!
  • In the very near future, I'll allow others to directly add and edit projects via the administration panel.



Seeing how really neat SFML games got forgotten and often their download links died as well, I had the idea to create a platform to share and archive SFML projects.
I made multiple attempts at creating a website that was simple to use, yet easy to manage. Switching from one CMS to the next framework, it never really clicked and development was slow and thus demotivating.
But recently I've been working with yet another CMS and noticed how easy it was to create a simple custom administration interface, plus utilizing some template to handle adding new projects easily.
Using the existing design, I was able to build a functioning and easily extensible site within just a few days!
It's not feature-complete yet as it currently is just a simple list of games and libraries, however with this base, it's relatively easy to create more detailed project pages.
A special thank goes to achpile and zsbzsb for having helped me out on previous versions in various ways!

It's much better than Screenshot Thread.
