The QGIS Resource Sharing Plugin

If you have ever wanted to share QGIS resources easily with your peers, this plugin comes to the rescue!

The QGIS Resource Sharing plugin allows QGIS users to share resources (symbols, layer styles, SVGs, images, expressions, processing models, processing scripts and R scripts) in repositories that other users can access.

A QGIS Resource Sharing repository could be a remote GIT repository (currently Github, Gitlab and Bitbucket public repositories are supported), local file system collections, or zipped collections on the Web.

Collections are stored locally. By default, they are placed under the user’s QGIS directory. Git based collections are downloaded using git clone and updated using git pull, meaning that the complete repository will be stored locally, and that you can use a git client to suggest changes, keep it updated (pull), … The plugin lets you update the repositories through the GUI (the Reload repositories button in Settings).

The plugin was initially implemented as a Google Summer of Code project in 2016 for QGIS under the OSGeo organization by Akbar Gumbira (student), Alessandro Pasotti (mentor), Anita Graser (mentor), and with the help of Richard Duivenvoorde, Tim Sutton, and others in the QGIS community.
