A life sign…
it’s been an incredible year for me. But at the same time, there is a lot to do. That’s why I couldn’t invest as much time into Laker as I wanted. I know there some problems at the moment regarding the Table Of Content, which need to be fixed, but the reality is, that I don’t have the time at the moment to work on this. I’m sorry. I guess writing a book, producing a dvd, running your own studio and be engaged in several other projects is a lot of stuff – and it seems that my week also only consists of seven days.
I’m incredible thankful for all your nice words and comments and I would like to encourage you, to work with Laker in the future. But to be honest, I think after this long time it really needs a basic overhaul. It’s OK at what it does, but I think the following things need to be addressed in future updates:
- Clean Code
The Code is really messy at some points. Really need to clean that up (especially the CSS’s)
- Get rid of the CSI Library (which loads content on the client side dynamically)
It’s no big secret: It slows things down, is complicated and is not needed that often. We have to find a workaround for this, which is easier
- Simpler, Cleaner, Easier
I think everything should be simpler, cleaner, more modern. There are a lot of files, it needs to be stripped down to the essentials.
- Target additional Devices
I heard about FRIAR, the port of Baker to Android. Maybe a future Version should support screensizes beside iPad and iPhone
- Support the library-function in upcoming Baker versions
Finally they added it in 4.0! Great job, guys! Laker should support styling and co. also.
You see: There is lots to do. I don’t know when I will be able to work on these issues, but I really want in the future. Until then I want to say thank you for the incredible feedback and tipps I received over the year.
And please: Continue doing so and mail me if you wanna talk. I’m always interested in fresh minds and new opinions!
Have a happy new years eve and see you all in 2013!
