One thing I have always wished for was for the classes and their example files to be able to be viewed online as a working demo instead of having to download and install them.

Once in a while I get this same suggestion.

The problem with showing working demos is that the site would need to audit the demo code to prevent that it accesses security sensitive server side data.

Alternatively, the site allows the authors to submit links related to each package. Authors that have demos running in their sites can use that possibility to provide links to the demo pages.

The problem is that most authors do not demo pages at all or otherwise are not motivated to provide demos. Maybe there should be a package rating parameter to encourage authors to provide demo page links.
