GitHub is expanding the scope of its code repository to include support for publishing software packages, the company plans to announce Friday afternoon.
After teasing an announcement all week on Twitter, GitHub will unveil the GitHub Package Registry during a live stream Friday afternoon starting at 1:30 pm PDT. The new service will allow developers to publish software packages — collections of code and metadata that allow source code to execute on a computer — on GitHub, or within private repositories used by paying customers inside their software-development organizations.
🎁 Very excited to share that we will announce a brand new GitHub product on Friday at 1:30pm PT. Watch our livestream to see the news: https://t.co/HRHCqylTp7
