New filters let you see who wrote what and when, for collaborating and commenting.
2 to quick toggle
Sell your stuff, make a little store, cultivate a little vibe, with the new Garage Sale template
Favorites have been moved from the spaces dialog to the ♥ button in the footer to make them easier to find and use
Turns out, hiding links isn't an advanced thing to want, so now there's a card button for toggling link visibility.
▲ Z stacking order of cards is more predictable
▲ garbage analytics/tracking params are automatically removed from links
Cards with multiple URLs (like an image and website) now always link to the website.
Also, you can hide link URLs from displaying on cards by appending
?hidden=true to them.

Wrapped up my 'working' vacation and have some new things to share
Looks like I've got a stack of new bugs too. Also need to find more time somewhere for that whole pesky 'marketing' thing
I did some work over the weekends and added a couple long-time requests today so I've got a bunch of stuff I still need to tell the world about:
- change space backgrounds
- space background upload progress and changes broadcast to collaborators (makes a p cool demo)
- cmd-a to select all cards
- move/copy to a new space
I might schedule the announcements to be a couple hours apart so it's not overwhelming
started marketing outreach today. Over the last couple months I've been building a little list of people I should actively contact to tell them about Kinopio to hopefully encourage them to post about it.
The list has traditional journalists who covered Glitch, productivity tool youtubers, and scrapbooking enthusiasts and DIYers. I'm trying to mix up the voices, both old heads and new faces.
It's kinda funny/ironic how I've passed the part of my life where I have to send coverletters and applications to jobs, but now I've replaced that form of outreach with this one (I hope the rejection rate isn't the same though!)
🌙 (p.s. if anyone has leads or recommendations of people I should talk to def let me know)
Finished some seemingly small, refinements around uploading files:
When you dragged over your space with a file in hand you'd see a squiggly line - now your collaborators can see that squiggle too. Also when you start uploading a file, the percent progress of the upload will also be shown to collaborators and spectators.
In practice, this makes collaboration with file uploads feel just as predictable and immediate as the rest of the interactions. Plus maybe it's fun to see squiggly lines floating around.
It seems to be working fine and I'll market it more widely probably later today or tomorrow. I've been feeling sleepy all day today, kind of a slogging feeling. #TGIF
when it rains it pours,
Released most of image uploading, fixed a bunch of collaboration-related bugs, changed the privacy default of new spaces, and I'm steadily working on an audio player for mp3 cards (admittedly that last part is more of a passion project, but also opens up a new way to use kinopio). Because of some tangents, I'm a little behind my finally-start-marketing deadline, but I can also see the light at the end of the tunnel.
I think I could've done a better job with the promo-video for image uploading, I like some of the video editing ideas that GB Studio does (https://youtu.be/Wk96Pf6OL8Y). But at the same time, image uploading is a lot of work, but such a common feature in everything, that the perception was bound to be pretty meh, not matter how good the implementation.
