I saw a nice presentation for TC 9.x in http://tinycorelinux.net/9.x/x86_64/tcz/index.html, same is for http://tinycorelinux.net/9.x/x86/tcz/index.html
Could we have something similar for http://tinycorelinux.net/10.x/{x86, x86_64}/tcz/index.html ?

I undestand that  TC10 is in continous flux updated/corrected.
But maybe a tiny script on your server to query [every week?] the already existent files such as
info.lst.gz [10kb], md5.db.gz [61kb], sizelist.gz [16kb], tags.db.gz [25kb] to produce the equivalent of tc9 index.html [264kb]. the main fields title, descriptions, version, size, (eventualy tags) will allow a quick inspection when forced to see it from other OS  (windows  :-[)

EDIT: eventualy with annother filed like type ={tcz, doc, locale_lang, dev_src} whichs allow a quick copy/paste of the html in an spreadsheet table for sort, filter etc.

A matter of taste. I like present TC10 index and don't like present TC9 index (. Besides earlier TC9 index was as usual, then it became "nice" and caused the feeling, that i make a mistake in URL ).
tce for console and Apps for X gave all the heart wants.
And yes, TinyCore differs from other distros, and it's beautiful!
Simply an opinion )

maybe I should highlight it again, to clarify: it was about how TC is seen from outside of the linux world. Like when someone want do "have a look over it", but from stupid win10 (foced by "others" on me, like corporations). So I could do some "work" on evaluating the apps size, the diverisity of categories, etc. FYI: i have no (major) problems when "working" from INSIDE of tinycore :)
EDIT: I did the full listing in Excel, and I can do it again, if in need. because i see (sorry!) not many/often new versions apps. And I start to cristalise the comparison TC versus other "distros". (security, small size, speed, portability). the competition is caching up guys :)

 i hope to finish/update  the scripts in the linked post

get-repo-info.sh -  small script to download/collect each $arch/info.lst file
mk-repo-table.js - read $arch/info.lst data into json and create html table
to 'get/view what tcz is in *each* arch for each release version'
 both have been rewritten in awk!

... in the mean time
a few other methods to create a 'nice' extension list can be found in "Programming & Scripting - Unofficial"

eg
http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,22016.0.html (tabulate.sh) Enhancing the "Browse TCZs" Webpage with an Automated Script

http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php?topic=20688.0 'UserScript' for  Tampermonkey aka "Extentions Repository Browser Userscript"
