Readme

This val serves as an aggregator for all vals with the tag // @vtIdeas in their code. To create your own idea list, simple fork this template val and follow the instructions there (instructions can also be found on the the aggregator homepage)

Feature Wish List

Here's some stuff that could be added to this val:

  • Pull in the actual lists of ideas from the various aggregated readmes and collect them in a (sortable?) table
  • A community list of val ideas, submittable to by form
  • Instead of a link list of links, make each Idea List a card, with revealable content

This val serves as an aggegrator for personal lists of ideas people have for what they
want to build on val town (or anything else having to do with Val Town, I suppose).
## Ideas
${items.join("\n")}
## Starting your own list
To create your own collection and add to this list, do the following:
1. Fork [this template val](https://www.val.town/v/nbbaier/vtIdeasTemplate)
2. Add the following metadata to the top of your freshly forked val's code
\`\`\`
// @vtIdeas
// @title <insert a nice title>
\`\`\`
3. Change your new val's name (see the list below for names already in use)
4. Add your ideas to the readme!
**Note:** Make your val public when you're ready for it to be listed here.
### Reserved Val Names
The following val names are already in use, and therefore should **not** be used: ${reservedVals.join(", ")}
## Feature Wish List
Here's some stuff that could be added to this site (sure there's a lot more!). Feel free to help if you can!
- Pull in the actual lists of ideas from the various aggregated readmes and collect them in a (sortable?) table
- A community list of val ideas, submittable to by form
