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
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 #remotestorage on Freenode.
We just published RS draft 09, with only a single change: https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-dejong-remotestorage/
"Always build your architecture in a way that will avoid becoming trapped into a specific service."
Another big step on the way to remoteStorage.js 1.0.0: https://community.remotestorage.io/t/remotestorage-js-1-0-0-alpha1/393
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!
Open protocol for per-user storage: Webfinger + OAuth + CORS + REST. Works great with unhosted web apps. https://remotestorage.io
