I am once more without day job, and so patch-tag is getting more attention than it is used to. Could patch-tag be a day job, after all? Let’s just say I am toying with this idea but trying to stay grounded too. I don’t have as many users as I wanted when I started this project — not by a long shot. However, a good proportion of the users I do have seem to be “real” users — actually using repos, browsing around, not just signing up and moseying away when the novelty wears off. This is good. On the other hand, I worry that the logs I am basing this on might not be fair — perhaps bots or other phenomena are responsible for the apparent signs of activity. So, this — understanding true usage — is also something I am working on.
This week was mostly incremental improvements, but it was all stuff that has to happen before shooting for bigger goals (gitit, git format repos, and todo lists).
- Edit profile page improvements: you can change your primary email, delete profile, etc
- The repo command page has a “push patches over email: ” section.
- Added some admin functionality, for better understanding my user base, and in preparation to pull the trigger on paid repos at some time in the not too distant future
- Refactored and cleaned up a lot of code. Hey, is that a feature? Maybe not for you… but it’s a feature for me, the guy that has to deal with self-created mess.
I am also working on a talk to evangelize happstack to the southern california FP and web dev community sometime in the next few weeks.
Stay cool, and keep tagging.
