64digits v4 pre-alpha
Posted on November 05, 2016 at 21:00
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:
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:
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.
