`Flipper` Ruby Gem - Feature added

June 24th, 2020

The flipper ui just got a fresh coat of paint and I am here to tell you about it. From adding descriptions to your features to bringing the OSS UI more in line with flippercloud.io, flipping features just got even better.

First, let’s talk descriptions, since that is what triggered all this work anyway. It started with a contributed pull request that got me thinking about it. Juan Roldán got it super close and I took it over the finish line akin to Usain Bolt.

The great thing is your descriptions for the web UI can come from wherever you like. Store them in MySQL or Postgres or Redis or a YAML file on disk. Whenever descriptions are needed, the block is invoked with an array of keys.

Tecno Music Mixes

August 7th, 2015

As a big fan of electronic music and most of its variants and styles, I decided to start a series of mixes where I can put together nice sounds to make a morning more interesting, an afternoon enjoyable and a night to be remembered.

Improving user experience without design

February 25th, 2015

An upgrade to an existing site elevates the user experience without so much as talking to our designers. Of course, as a user, you probably won’t notice it, per se. Most likely you’ll visit our sites and think to yourself, "Wow, this is fast. And fun. And I’m gonna tell my friends about it!". And that’s just fine with us.
