Hello everyone! We've finished up our first month in beta and based on the feedback from our early users, we have an exciting...
I originally looked for something more lightweight than ES, but all the ones I tried did not have the features or maturity of ES. ES is a beast, from features to resource usage BUT it works the best I've seen so far and can scale from 5k to 5 billion+ docs just by sharding.
You'll also have to bolt on your own UI, however I would imagine Wordpress probably has a plugin for that.
Elasticsearch (powering @glue's search) is a beast! So many things to tweak and tune... But once you get it working the way you want, it works really well 👍
I'll give it a try! That would def save on Adobe CC subscriptions for my wife who uses photoshop and illustrator, which are separate subscriptions!
I haven’t used Figma yet, still in photoshop and sketch but maybe it’s time to give it a try 🤷♂️
Images are capped at 570px by 300px for the timeline view, no cap on height in the Drop view. I'm working on a way to view full size images too with no width restriction when you click to "view full size" basically.
Yeah +1! Rich links would be nice. Agreed on tracking too, I'm curious how each service enables that. I know for generic links posted on Twitter, it looks for specific Twitter meta tags for title, snippet, featured image. I've got it marked down for feature request! 👍
Today has been a week since we launched and wow it's been a sprint! ⚡️Lots of new users and drops posted! Big thank you to everyone for the phenomenal feedback and I'm excited for the features coming next. Going to make dinner with the family and take a breather tonight! See you tomorrow 😀
I'll check the logs, I think that's the largest image that's ever been tried on Glue 😆 I can tweak our image processing to handle more. I'm working on another iteration of the Drop compose that will show upload progress too. Great feedback, thank you!
In the meantime, before I put the blog post out, I would like your, @atmos and anyone else's feedback too. This is important to get right.
Glad to hear! 😀 On privacy: - No trackers (working to keep our uBlock block count to zero as it is now) - We won't sell your data - I'd like to not do ads, if we had to they'd be contextual, and privacy respecting, not tracking based (Continued...)
Working on a paid acct which would give extra features (stats on your Drops, more blog features, custom domain, etc) I want to make sure Glue always has a free option to ensure everyone can use it, regardless of their economic position I'll put out a blog post to outline privacy in more detail too
I just signed up and I LOVE the super clean UI! Just beautiful! I'm missing your stance on the privacy topic, because I think it is the one topic/feature that drives people away from other networks. What's your business model? I hope it's not ads/tracking like nearly all others.
P.S. beautiful photo, I love photography of clouds / storms Your photos are up on the popular tab too with some upvotes 👍
Welcome to Glue! Image previews have a fixed height in the timeline view but when you click a drop the main view will show it full height... I’m also working on a click to view full size option too 📷
