Good smells for software packages #inductiveautomation #ignition

There is a concept of ‘code smells’

any characteristic in the source code of a program that possibly indicates a deeper problem.

I think there are some good smells for packaged software. Like fresh chocolate chip cookies.

The first and greatest is a great big button that says download to try it out, bonus points if I don’t have to register.


Letting you run the full suite for two hours at a time is also nice.

The nice fresh smell is to know how much the software costs without requesting a quote.

Bonus points, an active forum
