Just popping in to give some greetings. I’m hoping to do some contributing going forward. My background is more GIS in nature, so if there’s something I don’t see that you think I might have particular interest in I’m always open to suggestions. Really admire the work you guys do!
@benstoltz - tbh I’m not sure on the specifics of teh installer plans… I just know that we’re aware its not simple right now and that the simpler it is, the more people will be able to get up and going
@guest28 - for sure - thats def under consideration here too :) ushahidi loves open source
@hollycorbett Absolutely love both of them. I'm really quite warming to Ember, though I'm sure it's not for everyone. The fact that it enforces a relatively strict development pattern really appeals to me in terms of large scale projects. Conversely however I've found it can introduce some...wonkiness
The same could be said for Meteor though (with regards to the wonkiness), however it's more freeform.
@benstoltz - interesting. Having followed the development of native frameworks etc over the last few years, I can’t help but feel a little paranoid about how closely they’d track native frameworks.. the release cycle is releentless :D but its probably not important for the vast majority of apps
@hollycorbett Well one of the things I really like with regards to Ember is how they manage their release cycle. Minor releases are when they release new features. Major releases 1 > 2 is when they remove all deprecated code. So you always have the entire lifespan of a major release to do your updates and pull your code up to compliance. Plus like major features like a virtual dom (React) they implemented on the backend. So your code stays exactly the same, you just end up benefiting like you would with say React.
