We're having a public planning/community call next Tuesday (April 21), with the aim of creating a rough roadmap toward RFC track for the #remoteStorage spec, and its broad adoptability. Everyone is invited:
New versions of the remoteStorage.js connect widget add-on have been released, with noticeable improvements to the UI/UX. No breaking changes, so you can update your apps with ease:
Here we go. A public functional beta be careful please prototype of my notes app based on Notational Velocity https://hyprnote.com/write – data sync via @remotestorage, some Sublime Text keyboard shortcuts, [[double-bracket interlinking]], works nicely offline and on mobile too. Yellah habibi.
Super excited to share Launchlet, my first open source project!
The compose interface makes it easy to create your own. I used Svelte for the front-end programming and the almighty @remotestorage to save data in the browser and sync between devices – no database and works offline.
Not sure how people will react, hoping for the best 🙂
remoteStorage.js 1.2.1 released, contains important bugfix for apps supporting Dropbox and GDrive sync: https://github.com/remotestorage/remotestorage.js/releases/tag/v1.2.1
Version 12 of the remoteStorage spec was published a few days ago. It contains one potentially breaking change for servers, but most should already be compatible:
remoteStorage.js 1.1.0 released: https://github.com/remotestorage/remotestorage.js/releases/tag/v1.1.0
Special thanks to all new contributors!
Know a thing or two about resumable/large file uploads on the Web? Help us add this capability to the remoteStorage protocol: https://community.remotestorage.io/t/resumable-file-uploads/461
remoteStorage.js 1.0.3 released: https://github.com/remotestorage/remotestorage.js/releases/tag/v1.0.3
Contains an important bugfix for document versioning. Developers: please update to the latest version! 🙏
I needed a #remotestorage file browser app, so I created one: https://community.remotestorage.io/t/rs-inspektor-a-simple-remotestorage-file-browser/428
The rs.js release announcement popped up on Hacker News. Upvotes and comments appreciated, of course: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=15669355
Convenient one-click way for supporting remoteStorage and a user-first Web: just star our JS client library on GitHub: https://github.com/remotestorage/remotestorage.js 🙏
Aside from improving developer UX and public APIs in 1.0, we also worked hard on a whole new documentation site: https://remotestoragejs.readthedocs.io/
Fun facts: 1st commit to the rs.js repo was on November 5, 2010 by @michielbdejong. Since then, we had 51 people contribute 4393 commits.
remoteStorage.js 1.0.0 has been released and there's much to love! https://community.remotestorage.io/t/remotestorage-js-1-0-0-released/414
Almost there: we just tagged remoteStorage.js 1.0.0-rc1! Finishing up the docs now... https://kosmos.social/media/p6W6hzppS9GHYRtzXq4
Open protocol for per-user storage: Webfinger + OAuth + CORS + REST. Works great with unhosted web apps. https://remotestorage.io
