Project update 21/05/2021

Post by jeanmarc » Fri May 21, 2021 8:32 am

Dear users,

123solar will turn 10 years old in few weeks. It's been a while and I've really enjoyed learning while having fun.
That said, to tell the truth, i've no motivation to continue much development and improvement.

It's not that I abandoned the project but I rather left it to the community. The code is available on github
I never wanted to put it on such platform to avoid bad forkings and to keep consistency. Meanwhile, I have to admit that I don't code much these days and the project has stalled.
I think it's wise now to see further, I'm sure some devs will continue the work. The code is really simple, I just hope the code, the UI will respect the principle : Simple while powerfull.

As always, I will be available for any support or help. The 123solar website/forum will be closed in a year or so, as it costs me money and time to maintain.
Let's see where it will go now, I'll give hands to you :)

On my side, I will have to learn how github works (push requests and so) and to maintain it.

The first thing that needs working on is updating the releases through github.
I keep a list of ideas i wanted to work on here

Last but not least words are to thank you, users, especially those who lend to kiva or make a small donation to me. It was really encouraging.
A warm thanks also to developpers (Curt, Roland and all the others I forgot to mention). Thanks also to Highcharts guys, that's a wonderful JS library.

So no worry, it's just another step and I'll keep on eye on what's happening.
See you all and enjoy life and the sun !

PS for meterN: I still have some things to work on, then it will go to community as well

Hi Jean Marc thanks for all the effort you put in developing and answering our question!

Your 123solar software is running on a Raspberry Pi Zero in my dad's basement for five years and is still doing great.

All the best and good luck for your new challenges.
