Spendflow, an application I’ve been developing on and off over the past year, is now open-source. What is perhaps more interesting is that it’s a Meteor application developed in CoffeeScript. Although Meteor is gaining traction and nearing 1.0, there are still not that many published applications built in Meteor.
I hope Spendflow will be a good example of how to structure a Meteor application of its kind (or that community feedback will soon make it so).
So, since about 3 days ago, I’ve started providing some support on IRC! Basically, ever since Four Kitchens presented on open-source and no-cost tools for collaboration and mentioned that serious Drupal professionals needed to be on IRC, I decided I’d leave ChatZilla on and hang around on IRC. This led to me starting to answer people’s Drupal questions, and before I knew it, I was suddenly giving support!
It’s actually been quite a good experience. I’ve helped a few people solve their problems. Best of all, I was able able to check the, “I give support on IRC” checkbox in my Drupal.org profile!
Without further ado, let’s look at what giving support on IRC is like!
A quick update to report that, as of today, I’ve become a co-maintainer on the Features Extra Drupal module.
This time, I just wanted to get some patches committed, and since I’ve got the process down fairly well after my experience with Fill PDF and Meetup API.
Features Extra lets you export blocks and node queue definitions into code and works in conjunction with the Features module. It lets you export taxonomy vocabularies, too, but Features has native support for that now…so don’t use Features Extra for that.
