I think wordpress.org needs to create a snippet repo. Gone are the days when 5 lines of code constitute a "plugin". For example, if you take a look at this plugin, it's all of 5 lines. And while it SHOULDN'T be in the theme, it's probably best in a functionality plugin, which would be a series of snippets. https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-force-https/developers/ Easy Digital Downloads got a lot of positive praise for their snippet library (https://github.com/easydigitaldownloads/library), then WebDevStudios followed suit (https://github.com/WebDevStudios/CMB2-Snippet-Library). If developers could be "authors" of snippets like the HTTPS redirect one, in the same way they are authors of plugins or themes, it could add a lot of value to the Repo as a tool for development, not just the low-hanging fruit for end users. Thoughts?
