Add your own computational acoustics code#

If you’d like to contribute to the community user code database, please fill out this form. Your code will need to be hosted on GitHub, and we ask that you provide an informative readme file. You should also select a licence type.

If the sentence above makes sense to you, you don’t need to read any further! If you would like to know how to create a GitHub repo for your code, read on…

Hosting your code on GitHub#

Before proceeding, you will need to set up a GitHub account if you don’t have one already.

  1. Log into GitHub.

  2. At the top of the page, click Repositories. This will open a list of all your current repositories.

  3. In the top right, click the green New button. This will open the Create a new repository page.

  4. Input a name for your repository, and an optional description. Make the repository public (not private). Click the checkbox to Add a README file and make sure you Choose a license from the available list. Both a README and a license are requirements if you want to link to your code via the Computational Acoustics Knowledgebase.

  5. Click Create repository at the bottom of the page.

  6. You will now be taken to your repository page, and you will see at outline README file. You can click the pencil icon to edit the README file (using markdown formatting).

  7. Use the Add file button at the top of the page to upload your code files or create new ones.

  8. Once you are satisfied that your code is properly uploaded, use this form to submit it to us for inclusion in the knowledgebase.
