Input status: June 19th, 2015

Note: This is an old post in a blog with a lot of posts. The world has changed, technologies have changed, and I've changed. It's likely this is out of date and not representative. Let me know if you think this is something that needs updating.

What is it?

The purpose of Input is to collect actionable feedback from our user base across each channel of our software development process. The application collects feedback and offers a set of analysis methods for looking at the resulting data.

This is a status post about Input.


High-level summary:

  • lots of library updates and changes to make way for Django 1.8

  • switch from nose to pytest

  • new suggests and redirector frameworks

  • upgraded from Elasticsearch 0.90.10 to 1.2.4

  • added editorconfig and pre-commit for easier development

That doesn't sound like a lot, but it was.

I'll write a more comprehensive blog post about the new suggests and redirector frameworks soon.
