Introducing eBay Community Codebase, the new development environment providing developers interested in creating software applications using eBay Web Services a place to share development resources.
eBay developers have consistently given us feedback that you’d like to collaborate on open source projects and exchange ideas with your fellow eBay developers. The eBay Community Codebase responds to this feedback by providing a place where you can work collaboratively on open source projects to build innovative applications. eBay Community Codebase includes a shared code repository with version controls, group mailing lists, issue tracker and shared documents and files.
Developers can find eBay Community Codebase at http://codebase.ebay.com and immediately begin browsing active projects and downloading code. If interested in contributing to a active project, developers will login using their eBay Developers Program User ID, create a unique version control password, then join an active project. Or developers can chose to create a brand new project. Our codebase guidelines have more information for interested developers.
The eBay Community Codebase is a new development environment that, in combination with our increased API call limits and new pricing model at the Individual tier, enables our developer community to innovate and collaborate on new projects together. Our codebase also represents our Community Values as a company:
- We believe people are basically good
- We believe everyone has something to contribute
- We believe that an honest, open environment can bring out the best in people
- We recognize and respect everyone as a unique individual
- We encourage you to treat others the way you want to be treated
We believe in the power of all of us. Welcome to eBay Community Codebase.
