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.

... 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!
