Working on a major board update, but it will be awhile, a long while with the upcoming move and various other projects. Probably won't change anything on the surface but it will make it easier to keep things up to date.
Buffistas Building a Better Board ++
Do you have problems, concerns, or recommendations about the technical side of the Phoenix? Air them here. Compliments also welcome.
If you can fix us getting logged off all the time, that would be great.
Thanks, Gud! Oh, related to the board -- are we still on Dreamhost?
No. We are on Digital Ocean.
Ah ha -- I am still paying Dreamhost. Will cancel that!
...Actually, would you go in and confirm that's fine? You should have access to the account.
Hi Gud, thanks for the update and for all of your work here. Do you have the ability to threadsuck in the queue for upgrades/updates? Thanks!
I should probably log into Dreamhost and download everything. I can try to do that this weekend.
Threadsuck is in the queue, but with the move and a big project at work, things are moving slow. The number one item is to overhaul authentication to make logging in smoother (I took most of the code from a guide on Rails authentication and it really hasn't worked as well as I'd like). Ideally, I'd go full OAuth2 with Auth0's free plan, but getting that to work with legacy accounts (people on the old board who have never logged into the current board) could be really tricky and I'm not sure how smooth I could make linking up the current accounts. Leaning toward using Spring Security and porting things to Java since that's the stack I'm most experienced with.
Thanks! That makes sense, and I don’t mean to be a pain about it. I just wasn’t sure if it was part of the plan - apologies if you’ve previously answered and I forgot. I forget a lot these days. Thanks for all that you do for the board!
