I went through two posts which tell about how one can make a Linux command. Here are the posts: Creating a custom Linux commmand, Creating Custom Linux Command

I wanted to know how can I make such commands available to everyone for download. My goal is to create a simple C++ graphics 2D game and run it as a command in Linux. Also, I wanted it to be available for everyone to use. Do I have to use git for it to be available for everyone and provide a simple installer for it? Thanks in advance

Providing an installation package requires familiarity with several different Linux distributions, because you will have to create packages for each family. But this is a bit premature IMHO.

To share the source code, you would create a project on Gitlab.com, Github.com, or similar, with the necessary scripts to let people compile a version for their own platform (automake, autoconf, and the like).
