dotaplays Changelog - v0.01

This is an apology post. An apology for not posting when I promised to post every other day in my recent post. So here's an update to what I've been working on this week. It's pretty difficult to stay on track of these blog posts when I have a full-time job and can only dedicate a few hours each day in the evenings to code. So please forgive me for preferring to code a little bit more rather than blog about what I've been developing.

So now I will promise to update weekly on the status of this project. And since it's still not ready for release just yet, I will start the changelog version at 0.01.

Here's the latest changelog for dotaplays (v0.01):
  • Submission now works
    • Can submit either the entire GFYCAT link or just the unique identifier of the gfycat URL
    • Detects NSFW content using the GFYCAT "nsfw" flag
    • Detects empty strings
    • However, there is simply no way for me to know whether or not a submitted GFY is related to Dota or not, unless I want to restrict all submissions to GFYs from the /r/dota2 subreddit
  • Mobile now uses media queries to get a better experience
    • Still a lot more work to do obviously because the page content has yet to be finalized
  • Added a section for possible ads
  • Fixed video sizing and re-implemented the pause/play canvas from GFYCAT embed script
  • Resized various images / icons
  • New logo / favicon

On a side note, I absolutely love changelogs. It takes me back to my childhood when I would read the latest patch notes from World of Warcraft.
