I'm developing Experience Builder Widgets during the day at work and I cannot access the community or github from work.  Still, I would like to contribute to the community on my own time and equipment because I have some ideas to enhance some of the Esri out-of-the-box widgets for Experience Builder.  I'd like to fork some of those widgets and push my enhancements back up to github for the community.  I downloaded Experience Builder developers edition and ran it, only to realize I have no Portal / Organization to login to.  Now what?  Is it impossible to do this?

I believe you can sign up for a free ArcGIS Online developer account, You will be limited with number of transactions etc - have a look at this:

https://developers.arcgis.com/sign-up/

At least this way, you will own all the development personally 🙂

You are welcome to come join the custom widgets group. You can share your widgets there.

Thank you, but I can't run Experience Builder because I have nowhere to login.  Is there a way a developer can get logged in without having to put money out his own pocket just to be able to contribute?

If you can write your code at work and take your widget home with you, you can share in that community. If you have to develop at home, it's going to cost you over $1000 per year. Maybe you can ask your employer if there is a way you can log in from your home computer?

Yes, thank you.  I dug into the details and confirmed the free developers account includes a personal organization with a small number of resources.  That's just what I was looking for.  I think I can do it.  Now if it is legal to fork the Esri out-of-the-box widgets is another matter.  I will verify that now.

It's a good question on the licensing - I don't develop often enough to let you know, unfortunately.

I'm sure you're aware, but for others; the github resources can be found here:

You can also download as a zip. Might be easier to work with.
