I am thrilled to announce that Visualizer has reached two major milestones: 3,000 users and over 800,000 uploaded shots.

Now granted, these are just numbers, but nonetheless, I’m very happy to see that so many people are using Visualizer. I certainly did not expect the vast majority of Decent owners to use a thing I made, when I wrote that first line of code just over two years ago.

I want to take a moment to thank everyone who has used Visualizer for your support and feedback. I’m very happy to be able to provide a service that helps you get the most out of your Decent. 🥰

Speaking of features, there haven’t been very many new ones lately. I’ve been mostly working on improving parsing of broken data, since there are a lot of different broken settings out there. There were many other fixes here and there to make Visualizer more robust and faster.

To that end, there’s also a new status page that is hosted independently of the main Visualizer service. Now I get to know about downtime immediately, and you can see if there are any current issues or planned maintenance with the Visualizer site, and also check the historical uptime and reasons for downtime. Luckily, I’ve had no downtime since setting it up, but let’s not jinx it, shall we? 😅

As you know, I recently lost my job, and I’m happy to report, I have the next gig already set up. It is with Better Stack, the very company that provides the new status page mentioned above. I’m very excited to be working with them, and I’m looking forward to the new challenges and opportunities that await me there. But fear not, Visualizer will continue to be developed and maintained, and I’ll be working on it in my spare time as I always have.

Thank you again for your continued support, and I look forward to many more milestones in the future!

The None tab

There has been a ton of positive feedback on the new tabs feature available to premium users. There has been one negative one though: they can take a lot of vertical space. Especially on mobile devices. Which makes it difficult to get to your shots. So today I introduced the None tab. It does exactly what you think it does: hides all the tab content. I think this solves the downside pretty well. And, as before, I remember the last selected tab, so if you select None, it’ll always be the default tab for you on that browser.

The migration to Fly was a bit rocky at times, with a total downtime of about 40 minutes. As far as these kinds of migrations go, I’m extremely happy how it turned out. And I couldn’t be happier how well Visualizer is performing now. Response times are down across the board, and the page just feels super snappy. 🤩

There were many more changes, including preliminary support for Smart Espresso Profiler. It’s not perfect yet, since I need to gather more files and users, but soon Visualizer could connect the wider geeky coffee world, and not just be Decent exclusive, and that’s super exciting to me. 🥳

Migrated to Fly

This morning I’ve migrated from Heroku to Fly. Hopefully everything still works fine. 😅

If you find that something isn’t working well or some things are missing, please contact me and I’ll have a look.

We now have a much more capable and faster server so the website itself should be performing better too. We’ll see. 😬
