Request for suggestions

Jun 15 2011 Published by under MediaCreeper

It’s been a while since I had the time to really do something constructive with the code, the project has been put into a maintenance phase, not moving in any direction, as I’ve been caught up in work — quitting employment, beginning a new.

I’ll put this request for suggestions out; what would you like to seen added and/or changed on MediaCreeper? All suggestions will be taken under consideration, I’ll even blog about each suggestion and evaluate it, with argumentation for/against inclusion into the code base.

Issues that is already on the roadmap..

  • Optimize database-connections (in transitional work for moving off MySQL to a non-sql database in the future, probably MongoDb)
  • Make web site more dynamic, add ajax to update listings
  • Clean up code base to prepare for public release, as open source
  • Sync API-calls with WordPress plugin CreeperPing
  • Adding full support for IPv6 — currently spotty support

.. there is possibly more issues that I’ve forgotten about, adding them as they bubble up.

Today I’ve done some tweaking of MediaCreeper, a few internal changes to the database structures, to simplify and ease JOINs between tables. This is to prepare for goodies to come.

Image (the small badge) serving code has been revised somewhat to serve the image directly in stead of redirecting (302’d it) to the image. A few header values changed to prevent it from being cached. Creds to Pawal! 🙂

CreeperDataLayer-, CreeperImageServe-, CreeperUtils- and CreeperTemplateEngine-classes has been modified to reflect all the internal changes made. Should be a little bit faster.

CreeperTemplateEngine were a bit wonky, compression did not always hit browsers successfully, with errors as a result — required you to reload page. Disabled compression until I get the time to oversee the code.

Widget should be online soon, almost working.

API should also be online soon, heavily reworked.

When updating some classes on the production server, I accidentally broke some code that are to be activated later, leaving MediaCreeper dead in the water for a minute or two, a simple fix — a configuration value were missing in the configuration file on the production server.
