Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I currently got a PHP/jQuery library that I've been working and improving for the last 2 years, and I'm using it in most of my own projects with great success. I'm always working on it, adapting to my needs, and then I decided to make it open source for other people to use, I'd like to ask for feedback but not sure if it's frowned upon on Stack Overflow, since it's full of willing developers with all kind of ideas, paradigms, etc. Could I do it? Or where else would it be viable?

I think such questions should go on codereview.

thanks, I placed my library there in CodeReview, hopefully I can have some valuable feedback :) – pocesar Nov 17 '12 at 22:21

You should probably ask on Code Review. From their FAQ

Code Review - Stack Exchange is for sharing code from projects you are working on for peer review. If you are looking for feedback on a specific working piece of code from your project in the following areas…

  • Best practices and design pattern usage
  • Security issues
  • Performance
  • Correctness in unanticipated cases

then you are in the right place!

HOWEVER, if you dump several thousand lines of code into a single question then I doubt it'll remain open for long. Equally if you just link to your project then this will be closed as it's useless for the future.

What would be okay is to take a single module, or better, part of a module. Formulate this into a working piece of code and then ask about that.

There must be specific parts of your code base that you're more unsure of than others? If you're looking for constructive feedback this would be the place to start.

In short:

  • Ensure you post code in your question
  • Don't post hundreds of lines of code.
  • Make sure you have some idea about what you want to improve about your code.
