TBH it is, but at least we will have a unified lib compilation. Later, we can add more functionalities, fix bugs & implement user suggestions by using Git Pull Requests. The hardest thing is to take the first step
jeeswg wrote:- Any list done 'by committee' is likely to be uniquely bad e.g. disorganised and with a slowness to replace antiquated/obsolete scripts, i.e. insufficient pruning, and a slowness to add new scripts, i.e. delayed responsiveness. Also, a reluctance to say 'no' to people can lead to lacklustre additions.
That's why we need a comittee that consists of several people who are active & have (spare) time to take care the continuity of the lib compilation.

Our first priority would be functionality over readability, it's like jquery.js vs jquery.min.js
, but it's not necesarily to strip all blank spaces though
This lib is intended for casual user's daily usage, while more advanced users can just fork the lib and add enhancements to their liking.
Most of people would just hop into a car, instead of inspecting every part of it before they ride, isn't it?

Yes these kind of scripts are very useful, but if they are buried over several pages under the "Scripts and Functions" forum section, they will eventually forgotten.
With this compilation, we hope those codes which made by briliant minds will survive and even got better over time
