This post is intended to cover the server costs for SteemWorld.org and to enable me to continue my development in the future.
In case you missed the first part:
SteemWorld ~ Weekly Support ~ #1
Dieser Post ist dafür gedacht die Serverkosten für SteemWorld.org zu decken und mir in Zukunft weitere Entwicklungen zu ermöglichen.
Falls du den ersten Teil verpasst haben solltest:
SteemWorld ~ Weekly Support ~ #1
I hope you are all well and SteemWorld works stable again at your location. The site is now being hosted on a different server and I even switched to a different hoster. Since the site itself does not require a high performance server and I want to separate it from the core system, which lives on a dedicated machine, it still resides on a shared IP for now.
If for any reason also the new IP should get blocked by some major ISPs, I will consider to order an extra dedicated server, but I don't believe that this will be needed any time soon.
Local (downloadable) SteemWorld Version
As I don't want SteemWorld's availability to be dependent on external providers decisions, I prepared a locally running version of the frontend that can be downloaded here from now on. I will keep that version up to date weekly, so that we always have a stable, local alternative available.
To run the local version, just download the zip file, extract it and double click on the 'steemworld.html' file. The site will as usual run in your browser, so it does not have access to your local machine (only to parts that your browser allows).
Of course, addons like KeyChain can also be used in there.
Update: In order to use KeyChain in the local version there is currently no other way than hosting the site on a local HTTP server on port 1337.
I'm currently working on major changes in the Posts Overview, especially in the 'Finished' and 'Search' tabs. The limit of only 100 visible posts, which mainly exists for performance reasons, has always been a big downside for many of us and it's time to bring the whole thing to the next level.
Of course, loading more than 1000 posts and showing them all at once won't work stable enough, especially not on mobile devices. What we need are date based groups for posts, for example 'January 2019' or 'Last 3 months'. Additionally it should directly be filterable by 'tags' and I would love to have a sorting feature as well.
In the process of building the new overview I will also realize @arthur.grafo's ideas for implementing an export function for all loaded posts and maybe even an exportable HTML document with basic navigation features to be able to 'read a book/collection of posts sorted by title/date'...
The archived (finished) posts will no longer get loaded at startup automatically, instead there will be buttons for loading them manually as desired. That will decrease the load on the connected Steem nodes in the site's startup process and it enables me to work with all instead of just the last 100 created posts.
I don't have any previews to show for this week, but I guarantee you that it will be awesome and bring some of the most missing features finally to life ;)
Have a green week!
