This InfoBox is intended to give readers a quick overview of a software page.

Documentation

To use this template, simply insert this code at the top of your page and enter the relevant parameters:

{{SoftwareInfoBox
|software name=
|image=
|type=
|platform=
|license=
|source=
|installed=
|input=
|output=
|users=
}}

Default values for some parameters exist, but will only be used if the entire line is omitted. For example, |image= leads to no image being displayed while not entering the image parameter at all will lead to the default image (cd and floppy) being displayed. Please make use of the "Show preview" button and it should be clear.

The "type" should be a brief categorization of the software, e.g. "3D printer firmware" or "CAD". For a rather complete example, have a look at the Tinkercad page.

Bugs/Future Development

  • would be nice to display default when empty parameter values are set
