Now that the Switch is confirmed to be able to launch homebrew via custom nro, is anyone going to put up a homebrew loader website?
This is what I think is possible...

The website will register developers who upload their compiled nro homebrew software into their own account.
So how it works is like this:

A developer compiles their new nro.
Create a new program name under their account at the homebrew website.
Upload the nro under that program name.
The website will have a listing of all developers and under each developer a list of their homebrew program names (to modify update, delete, etc)

Anyone who wants to run homebrew (including dev) would simply setup the Switch DNS to a special IP address that provides homebrew from this website.
The Switch will show a list of homebrew categorized by developer or homebrew category, etc.
Selecting it will run the homebrew software.

The site will simply run a webserver (port 80) and dnsserver (port 53) for ReSwitched. This way people who only wants to write software or run software don't have to create the ReSwitched service in Linux.

You can post the source code and also post the compiled homebrew under releases in GitHub as well.

What if you just want to post binary? Does GitHub support it?
Sometimes homebrew authors don't want to post source code to their work, only the binary

I'm not sure but I believe Github has some sort of private repository, you can make a repo private or public (I think).
However, if you only want to post the binary, then Github's not the place for that, might as well just create a thread with the [Release] tag, post the binary and that's it if the developer doesn't want to post the source code.

I would love to work this out and do the back-end of this. Is TS also willing to work on this himself? If so, front-end or back-end?

Please let me know, I would love to kickstart this soon

Are you actually doing this, or you are asking TS before you do this?

How would it work? You connect Switch to any wi-fi to the internet. You then manually edit the connection to change the DNS to your server. How do you get Switch to go to your DNS server? You have to try to update or try to go into eShop?

Last time I checked you couldn't make a private repository on GitHub without paying. It's why I used bitbucket for my one private collaborative project (not console related)
