# Packages

We encourage the creation of packages that simplify non-trivial bodies of computational methods, likely to be of interest to a community of researchers. We will be glad to distribute such packages, submitted and duly checked and approved, with future releases of the Macaulay2 system. The name of the package and functions in it should follow Macaulay2 naming conventions. To the extent possible they should make the purpose of the package clear to the casual browser. In particular, we encourage explanatory naming of functions, even if the names are relatively long; the users can always create shortcuts or use dynamic completion or abbreviation completion in emacs to speed typing.

## Instantly downloadable packages

Various packages written by others could formerly be installed with the "getPackage" command of Macaulay2, but we have eliminated that feature, so the list of them no longer appears here.
