The nice guy that finished first, founder of Glue / Ark and previously Twitpic.
P.S. I'm still here working on features! 👋 Worked through some burnout and got our house listed on the market, lots of changes happening. Finishing up quote and code sharing Drops, it's looking really nice!
ZFS on Linux continues to surprise and delight, what wonderful technology 🤓 Had a sysadmin task that I thought was going to require me to use LVM...nope! ZFS handles it just as well if not better 🕺
I've been programming for 20 years and I STILL under estimate how long it will take to build some features Drops with quote text and code highlighting are coming and the editor for them is pretty sweet! 🤪
Thankfully my wife's Apple Pencil was still under warranty and got it replaced due to a faulty battery. It looks like there is no way to replace the battery in them. In fact I don't think you can even get inside of the pencil without destroying it. Are they supposed to be disposable? 🤯
Good morning! 🌤 Finishing a blog post this weekend about privacy and your data with Glue. Also wrapping up the UI of a new quote and code sharing feature for Drops. Quoting will also be available from blog Drops for easy quote sharing and discussion 🔥 I’m excited about this feature!
Basic search is now working! 🔥 There are a few quirks I'm working out around the tokenizer to get better results for hashtags, usernames and blogs. Let me know if you find any other bugs! 🤓
Sorry everyone I'm a little slow on these latest updates! I have some family in town for a few days, but search is about 50% done and should be going live soon. Threading & blogging improvements coming after that ⚡️
Here's what I'm working on currently for Glue: · Search · Better threading for Drops · New blog sharing feature "snippets/quotes" · New content post type (related to above) · New activity/notifications indicator · Bugs, bugs, bugs... 🕺⚡️🤓
Oh man I've got some good ideas coming for Glue! ⚡️ I love it when new features "flow" into a design and even better when they can replace existing clunky UI. HANDS MAKE HASTE, TODAY WE PROGRAM 🙌
🙋♂️What is everyone's feedback on using hashtags for the upvote category for a Drop instead of the dropdown list on the compose dialog?—You could remove the upvote option before posting too. Pros: - Easier to add - Not limited to pre-defined list Cons: - Takes up more text space in Drop
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 😀
Pushed a fix to prevent duplicate Drops caused by hitting the button again and also showing better feedback when it's still posting. Also the page will reload to show you your Drop ⚡️
P.S. Glue is built on rails and uses redis for timeline distribution 🤓 Drop posted -> insert into queue -> queue fans them into redis -> timeline built from list key This scales well even for users with lots of followers 👍
Thank you to everyone who joined @Glue today and for your feedback! Working to fix the following... - Prevent duplicate Drops (show upload status) - Fix bugs on profile edit on mobile - Re-add delete Drop button on mobile - Add about/contact page I'm sure there is much more, stay tuned!
