1 Million 😱

I am ecstatic to announce that Visualizer has now surpassed 1 million uploaded shots! It’s been an incredible journey, and I never thought we’d reach this milestone, given I started it all simply because I wanted to see the charts on a desktop screen. Thank you for your continuous support and for making Visualizer a part of your coffee experience. 🥰

I have to address the 23-minute downtime on February 28th. There were some issues with my hosting provider and there wasn’t much I could do about it. Hopefully these cases remain rare, but I’m certainly checking out alternative providers. Remember, you can always check the current status and historical uptime of Visualizer at https://status.visualizer.coffee/.

You may have noticed that there haven’t been many new features (there were some) or change log updates lately. This is because I’ve been working hard on another project since November 11th: https://business.europeancoffeetrip.com/. I’m thrilled to announce that it’s finally live! We’ve just started rolling it out, and I’m super excited about the potential of this project. My ambitions with what I can build together with European Coffee Trip1 are massive.

At the beginning of the year, the first yearly subscription renewals were up, and I received a few disputes from members who forgot they had subscribed. To address this issue, I’ve made sure that everyone will now receive an email reminder before their subscription is renewed. Additionally, I’ve added a new Manage Subscription functionality to make it easier for Premium users to manage their account.

A while ago I switched to RoRvsWild for monitoring Visualizer, and thanks to their open-source program it’s completely free and all the stats and errors are public. Feel free to check them out.

Lastly, I’ve added preliminary support for Beanconqueror and Smart Espresso Profiler files. The former is done in cooperation with Lars, so expect more information soon and consider this a little teaser! 😉

Stay tuned for more updates, and thank you once again for being a part of Visualizer. 🎉
