New Search Fields and More

I’ve been overwhelmed by how positively the change to subscriptions was received. Many of you have signed up already, and most of you for the yearly plan. Which means you believe in Visualizer/me. Thank you all so much! 🥰

Since then, I’ve continued my development, and many things have been done.

Most notably for me: I switched to Ruby 3.1 and Tailwind 3. The latter was done via rails-tailwind gem, which allowed me to drop the entire JavaScript stack. This makes for simpler, faster, and easier development, and I couldn’t be happier. 🥳

But some things are notable for you too. Firstly, I added a couple of filters to the search: Grinder model, Roast level, Bean notes, and Espresso notes. This allows you to narrow down the public shots further, to find exactly what you’re looking for.

Secondly, the shot comparison has been improved. The new slider is relative to be the entire length of the longest shot of the two you’re comparing. I’ve added labels to it now, so it should be more apparent.

But the most complex issue was found when comparing shots done by machines reporting on different frequencies. I didn’t even know that devices report with varying intervals of time. But now I do, and now Visualizer handles that as well. ✅
