- Why Finally - A look at why building this project is a worthwhile endeavour.
The Finally Roadmap
The aim for this post is to share what you can expect over the coming weeks and months. What could a website builder on the blockchain look like.
Wide selection of themes to fit many of content types. What next? D.tube focussed, portfolio, food blog, dark theme. Open to suggestions and idea from the community.
Post controls. Fine grained controls of which posts are visible or hidden on the website. Include/exclude list for hashtags and specific posts.
Style customisations. Ability to change settings such as background, fonts, colours etc.
Single static pages. Support creation of static pages. Static pages are those like About or Contact. Possibility to turn a Steem post into a static page. Find another way to utilise the blockchain for storing static content.
Voting support from @finallynetwork account. Use human based curation to give back to supporters. No automatic curation, focus on themed, regular content.
Support for custom domains. Allow users to route top-level domains such as example.com to Finally.
Markdown Editor. Create an editor on Finally.network to allow posting and editing on site. An optional beneficiary could then be added to help fund Finally development.
Deeper blockchain integration. All actions on Finally should be broadcast across the blockchain. Custom_json operations allow for non vital information to be stored and retrieved later. Infrastructure problems should not stop the ability to bring the network back online. All data needed should be in the blockchain. source code and documentation should be available online.
Multi author support. Collaborative websites where Steem users submit content. Authorisation roles for admin/content creator. Will need specific themes that fit this content better.
These ideas begin to get more complex. There may be a substantial amount of time before features like these are a possibility.
Patreon style membership features. Provide the ability for membership/support levels for content. Infrastructure that support creators financially.
Discovery Platform. A way to categorise and discover users of Finally. Search/stumble upon/rankings/featured creators etc.
New user sign-up. Bring Finally network to the outside world. Create a seamless signup/create-website feature.
Self host packages. Downloadable prepared .zip with site ready to host. Possibility to automatically host on an external static platform.
Custom theme support. Documentation for creating your own theme. Ability to upload themes. Opens the possibility for a shop selling third party themes.
I have big ideas and high hopes for this platform. It would be great to hear any thoughts you have. Are there any features you would like or think should be prioritised?
