Clear instructions for package installation and usage


#1

I’d like to suggest an improvement to the package documentation - provide a verbatim command for installation.
After onboarding some developers to Elm, this is a regular source of some confusion.
For instance, say a developer finds the Array.Extra http://package.elm-lang.org/packages/elm-community/array-extra/1.0.2/Array-Extra then I think it would be very beginner friendly if there were some simple instructions:

Install from a terminal with:
elm-package install elm-community/array-extra
Use in a file with:
import Array.Extra

I found the lack of this to be a source of inconvenience when I started with Elm as well.
I think it is right up there with the simple access to the git clone command from github.


#2

I’ve found that there is already an issue for this at https://github.com/elm-lang/package.elm-lang.org/issues/27


#3

And for future reference, this is a planned feature, ref. my question about this on slack https://elmlang.slack.com/archives/C0CJ3SBBM/p1525723877000529 and the following response https://elmlang.slack.com/archives/C0CJ3SBBM/p1525725366000072

Do you have more discussion you want to have on this topic, or is it okay if we close it?
