What are Space modules
Modules are exportable user extensions that can include each other to be loaded and run by Space in a composable way. The execution can then be exported as a shell script, to be run directly or shared, all in a decentralized manner.
Behind the scenes, Space module is a directory on disk (often a Git repository) which contains at least a YAML description file (commonly named
Spacefile.yaml) and most often also
Spacefile.sh/.bash shell scripts. Modules are often located under
A user creating a YAML structure can clone and include modules into the YAML file, reusing them.
Space modules exported scripts only depend on a POSIX-compliant shell, so they run with Ash, Dash and Bash.
However Space modules which explicitly defines a Bash file as
Spacefile.bash will export Bash compliant scripts.
Space.sh provides by default a module ban list server for checking modules that might be broken or flagged as inappropriate.
