Publishing bouncers

We do welcome bouncers from the community, and will gladly publish them on the hub.

Why ?

Sharing your bouncer on the hub allows other users to find it and use it. While increasing your code's visibility, it ensures as well a benevolent look from the community and the team over it.

How ?

To have your bouncer published on the hub, please simply open a new issue on the hub, requesting "bouncer inclusion". The bouncer will then be reviewed by the team, and then will be published directly on the hub, for everyone to find & use it !

The information that should be stated in your issue are :

  • The source repository of your bouncer (for example https://github.com/crowdsecurity/cs-firewall-bouncer/)
  • The software licence used
  • The current status of the bouncer (stage : dev/unstable/stable)
  • Documentation (can be simply in the README.md) :
    • must contains : installing, uninstalling
    • should contains : configuration documentation
  • Link to existing tests if applicable (functional tests or unit tests)

Please take care of the following :

  • Ensure your repository has a About/Short description meaningful enough : it will be displayed in the hub
  • Ensure your repository has a decent README.md file : it will be displayed in the hub
  • Ensure your repository has at least one release : this is what users will be looking for
  • (ideally) Have a "social preview image" on your repository : this will be displayed in the hub when available
  • (ideally) A Howto or link to guide that provides a hands-on experience with the bouncer

Please find below a template :

Hello,

I would like to suggest the addition of the `XXXX` to the hub :

 - Source repository: https://github.com/xxx/xxx/
 - Licence : MIT
 - Current status : stable (has been used in production for a while)
 - README/doc : https://github.com/xxx/xxx/blob/main/README.md
 - Existing tests :
    - functional tests : https://github.com/xxx/xxx/blob/main/.github/workflows/tests.yml

 - Short/Long description : OK
 - Howto : in README
 - At least one release : yes

Publishing parsers, scenarios and collections

How ?

To have your parser/scenario published on the hub, please simply open a new issue on the hub, requesting "parser/scenario inclusion". The configurations will then be reviewed by the team, and then will be published directly on the hub, for everyone to find & use it !
