So close, I can taste it. Singleforest is nearly ready for beta. I’ve hammered the most the major bugs I’m aware of.
What’s left before launch?
- Some of the custom logging code is storing passwords. That needs to get fixed before the site can go live.
- Moving the server from Rackspace to WebbyNode. Waiting on WebbyNode to get debian 6 out. Will go with Ubuntu in a pinch.
- Need to write up Terms of Service and Rules documents.
Some of the issues getting the site ready:
- Getting SSL/nonSSL redirection working properly was not happening.
- Moved the entire site to ssl instead. Easier and more secure anyway.
- Getting tests written for some of the code. RSpec fought me every step of the install process.
- Releasing the beta with only minimal test coverage, will add tests as bugs pop up.
- Writing my own css was taking way too much time.
- Purchased a theme for $20
- Will fix some of the icky coloration later. (background too bright, link color too light)
- Event system was pretty complicated and was breaking a lot of code
- Stripped events and notifications to the minimum that was required and stopped trying to ensure they get saved.
- Spending too much time making the ajax stuff nicer
- Stopped working on writing my own widget library and settled on a just works solution for now.
I can’t wait to for this thing to be live. It’s been way too long.
