Agreed. We should probably move the tutorials off of Medium and have them as pages on the Interledger website so we can more easily keep them up to date. @akash would you have any interest in putting a revamped SPSP tutorial on the website?
We have archived a lot of them under interledger-deprecated, though there might still be more that need to be moved over.
This awesome-interledger list was started at some point but not maintained so I would definitely support it if someone wanted kickstart that list. That could be under someone’s own github account or under the Interledger org (let me know if you want me to create a new repo for it).
The proliferation of many repos might not be so bad if it were clear from the pinned repositories and other docs what the main ones are that you should use (for example, babel has 49 repos but babel/babel is the main bundle of functionality you want. We kind of tried to have a similar bundle with interledgerjs/ilp but we had a lot of disagreements about what functionality should be in there (someone with a fresh perspective might want to take a stab at it and ignore comments from me and @adrianhopebailie ).
Something like that could be neat, though one thing to think about is how you’d show that the payments are “really” going over BTC and ETH. Off-chain transactions are faster and more practical, but it’ll go through immediately and the viewer would probably wonder whether anything had actually been transferred.
There isn’t an official protocol but you could implement it by sending packets that you know particular hops will reject (there was a tiny discussion about it here).
