64digits v4 pre-alpha

Posted by Aistarin on Nov. 5, 2016, 8 p.m.

So I think I've gotten v4's codebase to the point where I can finally launch a pre-Alpha that regular members can try:

http://dcs.64digits.com/

You'll need to log in twice the first time so that your user info can be imported into the test database. Once you do, you should be redirected to your new user page that looks like this:

http://dcs.64digits.com/user/Aistarin/2948

However, if you get a "User is not allowed to login to this system" error at login, you'll need to PM me if you wish to log into the v4 pre-alpha. Access is currently restricted to regular members.

Feature-wise, you'll see that progress has been rather minimal aside from a very basic and ugly-looking blog and PM system. Most of my time has been spent working on the API authentication system, something which I have more or less made completely from scratch (save for a few things I'd rather not tackle myself, like generating cryptographically secure strings for tokens). But now that I have auth more or less nailed down, I will continue to add more features from the roadmap and announce them here in the upcoming weeks in hopes of getting continuous feedback in v4's progress.

I currently aim to have a beta up and running by the end of this month, as well as a pilot by mid-to-late December, where all data from v3's old database will be ported to v4's new one and tested for integrity.

Thank you,

-Aistarin

I don't want to be mean, but I'm not a huge fan of the new design. It looks like a site from the early 90s made in Notepad…

And we're changing the name to "502 Bad Gateway"? What's wrong with 64digits? Site looks a bit feature-incomplete too, but I don't know how much of it is really finished, so.

I just addressed an issue that happens when trying to log IPv6 addresses, so you should now be able to log in.

20<StevenOBrien>30 Yeah, it's not letting me send messages any more, Cyrus, unless I give it more than one user

20<StevenOBrien>30 They're out of order
20<StevenOBrien>30 Okay, when I refresh the page, the sending bug seems to go away
18<Cyrus18> if you guys find bugs, please post them as a comment on the blog

Here's an interesting problem. I did the login to import my settings, and apparently my data was imported even though I got the password wrong (Can't remember what my old password is).
Reset my password from this end, but of course the test db now has my old password. I suppose you'll have to re-import my data yourself or something.

User Misconstruct is not allowed to login ;_;

Aistarin 3 years ago

Mega, I noticed that too but it should not pose any security issues whatsoever. I'll PM you additional details in a bit.

So this is the beginning of the future, fascinating.

Updated with a super shitty basic activity feed + the Social page that flashback is working on. Also, comments should now appear in reverse chronological order.

Mega, I have fixed your account. You should be able to login with your current credentials.
