It has a very negative history (wrapping adware around your downloads) and it - nowadays not very comfortable.

I know, github is not everybodies darling too - but you can direct link to release download files, can track issues there ... all this stuff.
there are surely other "hubs" around.

What do you not know about downloads?

You know github offers an api just to retrieve all your repository stats? I fill my website download section automatically when pushing stuff to github releases... and my download page extracts download counts etc.


Just wanted to link you to
https://www.somsubhra.com/github-release-stats/?username=bmx-ng&repository=bmx-ng
but the website is no longer online
https://tooomm.github.io/github-release-stats/
will do too

"repository name" is not the same as "complete github url to my repository"

https://tooomm.github.io/github-release-stats/?username=aurelVZ&repository=microA-programming-language


according to this you did not do any release to download.
You do not get counts on how often people downloaded something from your "sources".


I did releases for my game (repository = sources, "releases" are the zip files with binaries)

I do not understand what you wrote (language wise)

so what "why not"?
"and "so this is (a) game ... in binary"?


I use github to upload the source code, the assets ... as the game is "(free) open source".
Once every while I compile for various platforms and archive the binaries together with the assets (so unzip it and you can execute it to play the game). These archives are uploaded as "releases".

Then on my website I can link to this release (a direct download file) and github is counting downloads for me. Of course other websites upload it on their own storage, so their downloads are not counted for me. But if they simply "hotlink" to the github files... it counts.

If you intended to ask wether you can try the game - yes you can, but this or next week we release a shiny new version after almost 2 yrs of development (you can always get it from the sources and compile on your own - but it is a "dev build" then, not a stable one.

While I am visiting this forum today, I discover that there are 10052 views in this topic. Maybe many members look forward to the formal version of the Interpreter.
