  • Some news about Movim and myself

    Timothée Jaussoin – Wednesday, 14 March - 07:52

I didn't share much news recently. I've been busy with lots of things in my personnal and especially professional life (I'm getting a new job at the moment).

However this doesn't mean that I've stopped working on Movim, I made a few big changes in the code recently.

The next release will actually not be a 0.13.1 but a 0.14 and is pushed back to a couple of months.

Why? Because I'm planning to remove the current ORM of the project, Modl, and replace it with a more complete and robust one. Eloquent is a strong candidate at the moment, it has a really strong community and a really good documentation (I am also using it on a daily basis in Laravel).

This new ORM will bring lots of new features on how the data can be handled in Movim and a more clear code overall. Modl has been specifically maintained by me since 2014 and I think it is now time to let it go and move on.

This change will take some time to be done, I'll see if I can do this progressively.

I'm also planning to get a bit more time to work on Movim and speed up the development and stabilisation of the platform. You can always help me by giving feedback, open tickets and pull requests to the project, translate it, write about it (I'd be glad to share those publications around) and also help us to cover the monthly expense of the project with our Patreon.

If you also have a feature that you would like to bring to the project and you are willing to sponsor it, you can always contact me as I'm dedicating some time for those specific requests now :)

That's all folks!
