Not much has been going on on the foreground of the website since it's reopening nearly 3 weeks ago. However, publications are on the way! The main reason for the delay was to make sure some of the extra features required for you to interact with the blog wouldn't break the existing posts.

New features

  • The ability to Comment. I was looking into developing my own system, but then I saw that it probably required me to create a huge framework with account creation or verification through 3rd party API and then sanitize the inputs with captchas or even filtering. Disqus will do for now.

  • Pagination system around the website. The pagination system is not quite visible yet, but buttons will appear when a few more articles will be there. This required me to create an URL parsing system to keep filtering tags when generating links.

  • Allow the creation of source blocks on the website.

Cooking right now

I've been heavily developing the project section of the website and I'm glad to say that it is ready soon to be released! I've been working with APIs to be able to link them with GitHub and get some data to display on the website. It led me to create my first public NPM module: call-cache!
