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:

datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft

community.remotestorage.io/t/v

Know a thing or two about resumable/large file uploads on the Web? Help us add this capability to the remoteStorage protocol: community.remotestorage.io/t/r

remoteStorage.js 1.0.3 released: github.com/remotestorage/remot

Contains an important bugfix for document versioning. Developers: please update to the latest version! 🙏

The rs.js release announcement popped up on Hacker News. Upvotes and comments appreciated, of course: news.ycombinator.com/item?id=1

Convenient one-click way for supporting remoteStorage and a user-first Web: just star our JS client library on GitHub: github.com/remotestorage/remot 🙏

Aside from improving developer UX and public APIs in 1.0, we also worked hard on a whole new documentation site: 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.

... and that's not counting all the work on the new connect widget, modules, and other things.

Almost there: we just tagged remoteStorage.js 1.0.0-rc1! Finishing up the docs now... kosmos.social/media/p6W6hzppS9

... 1.0 beta of remoteStorage.js, the reference RS client library, that is.

We're having a contributor meeting for planning the last steps and tasks toward the 1.0 beta release in ~10 minutes on IRC. You're welcome to join us in on Freenode.

Berlin friends: a few RS folks, including spec author Michiel de Jong, will be hanging out at c-base from 8pm tonight. Join us!

Another big step on the way to remoteStorage.js 1.0.0: community.remotestorage.io/t/r

New usage guides for how to integrate the new version in your JS apps (incl. the new connect widget with optional Dropbox and GDrive support) following soon!

We're a grassroots open-source movement/project, developing a new, user-first protocol and software for storing and syncing app data on the Web.

Toot us anytime with any questions you might have. Looking forward to being a part of the Mastodon/GNUsocial fediverse!
