JitPack (currently in Beta) is a package repository for GitHub that builds your GitHub projects on demand and publishes them, ready to download and use via the aforementioned popular means.
For me, this meant adding a pom.xml build file to my project, tagging my latest release, and pushing to GitHub. Done. Once I'm finished with my next round of coding and updates, I can do:
git commit git push git tag -a 1.0.3 -m "1.0.3" git push origin 1.0.3
And now, my code is available to the JitPack package repository for everyone to use immediately.
If you're a developer looking for a fast and easy way to get your code available, try JitPack. It's an interesting approach to skipping the build process and getting code assets available in a way that's easy for users, while being convenient to developers. Tools like that are definitely gold!
