Developer forum - file type attachments?

@jdunkerley79 and @Coxta45 expressed the need to be able to attach certain file types to posts within the DevSpace forum -- "we badly need to be able to attach html/js/zip and pretty much whatever devs need to these threads" 

 

Before we adjust our file attachment settings in this area, I figured it made sense to pose this question to the community and capture all the possibilities. We can then go on to evaluate what makes sense and adjust our current settings.

 

As an Alteryx Developer, what file types would you expect to be able to attach to posts within DevSpace?

Bolide

For starters:

 

  • .json
  • .xml
  • .htm / .html
  • .js
  • .css / .scss / .sass / .less
  • .php / .py (I assume devs will be using the new Python and soon to be PhP dev kits)
I’d add:
- .ts
- scripts bat ps1 sh
- all the c# types and c++ types (and maybe VB.Net for when I feel odd)
- config files

But then to get round all this zip it up as easier

Or gist/github embeds would work too.

PHP?

@MichaelCh I don't understand the question...

I was surprised to see PHP in your list. Where did you see we would be creating a PHP dev kit?

I'm pretty sure I heard about it from multiple folks at Inspire17 in Vegas..
