Hi Coda Team,
I have some questions that have come up for me in the process of thinking through creating and working with packs:
How will Coda ensure the quality and especially the security of community made packs?
I imagine coda to be used by many business users who work with sensitive data so community made packs that work with APIs and such might be a security concern.
On top of that data integrity might be an important issue for many users. How can we be sure some of these packs’ functions will not endanger this integrity? The more complex the functions become the smaller might be the chance of detecting bugs right away which might elicit unexpected behavior and data changes.
Have you thought about these issues? And what are your plans to minimize them?
What about version control? What if I use a community based pack that the owner is changing? Will I be forced to adopt these changes? Will I be able to?
Also: are you working on a system of finding and rating / commenting on packs & templates in the coda gallery?
Right now it is hard to find what is tried and tested / differentiate the good from the bad other than the “Trending” and “recommended” sections.
Thanks for all you do. I have only recently stumbled on your product and am already a huge fan.
