2nd Feb 2018 - StackHub granted an A+ Security Rating

When it comes to browser security, no-one knows more than the people who write browsers. So when Mozilla, the creators of Firefox, award your site an A+ security rating, it's something to be proud of!

Observatory by Mozilla is an initiative aimed at teaching professionals to create a safer Internet. You can view StackHub's Observatory results here.

5th Jan 2018 - BuildingFit becomes a StackHub Vendor

It is my pleasure to welcome BuildingFit to StackHub as a new vendor to our new marketplace!

The SkySpark R Extension (bfitRExt) allows the user to query R from within SkySpark and returns results directly back into SkySpark, allowing R algorithms to be inserted into rules, KPIs, and functions. This extension is also fully compatible with SkySpark 3.0.

Like all extensions on StackHub, bfitRExt can be installed using SkySpark's install manager - just make sure to buy it first!

15th Nov 2017 - StackHub @ SkyPosium 2017

StackHub was a proud sponsor of SkyPosium - the worldwide SkyFoundry community event held on 14-15 November 2017, Dulles, Virginia, USA.

This year's SkySpark conference was a great success and enjoyed a full turn out of SkySpark developers, users, and enthusiasts. All of whom were very keen to find out the latest news and offerings in the industry. StackHub attracted much interest and I look forward to working with many new clients in the coming year.

Not only did I get to meet many new faces and old acquaintances, but I also delivered a presentation on Axonator - the Axon Encrypter ! Available exclusively on StackHub - see Axonator Ext for details or watch the presentation on YouTube!

In summary, SkyPosium was a great event and promises a very successful future for StackHub and our clients!

3rd Nov 2017 - BAM hosts Fantom Wars 2017

Robert wins BAM's Escape the Mainframe competition with a top score of 1702!

When the Escape the Mainframe game (made in Fantom) was released as a SkySpark extension on StackHub by AlienFactory, BAM Energy Systems decided to host an internal competition, called "Fantom Wars" on their SkySpark development server.

Due to elevated interest and fierce battles for top place, this 3 week event was extended to over a month!

The public Hi-Score server for Escape the Mainframe was upgraded to accept ZINC requests and BAM responded by creating their very own SkySpark View for analysing the top scores; including a Productivity Monitor!

For the closing ceremony BAM commissioned a bespoke winners cup and coffee mug, while Alien-Factory gifted generous amounts of branded magnets, stickers, and badges.

Robert, we dub thee: Fantom Wars Champion 2017!

  • Added functionality to delete individual package versions.
  • The StackHub home page now lists new packages and recently updated package versions.

30th Aug 2017 - v2.2.0.18 - Fandoc Tables and Syntax Highlighting

Added support for syntax highlighting and table rendering in package readmes and profile pages.

To apply syntax highlighting to preformatted text, prefix the first line with syntax:XXXX where XXXX is the name of the syntax to use. Common syntaxes include: axon, csharp, css, fantom, html, java, javascript, and xml.

exampleFunc : 
(a, b) => do
return a + b

To render a HTML table, use preformatted text with table: as the first line. Table parsing is simple, but expressive. The first line to start with a - character defines where the column boundaries are. All lines before are table headers, all lines after are table data.
