CANCELED: Shelves
« on: December 06, 2011, 07:18:23 PM »
Shelves is a concept extension for Google Chrome that's been jumping around in the back of my mind for a long time now. I've been waiting for NANY to find the motivation to work on it, though (and waiting for Christmas Break to find the time!).

The catch is this:  Even though Shelves would be a great thing to have, it's not a very exciting product. Most people won't really care about it. That's perfectly fine, because most people aren't part of its target audience anyway. But I want to release something broader for NANY if I can.

So this is my pledge:
I will dig deep into my dusty old list of programming ideas. If I can find one that's got more oomph and if I can complete it in time, you'll see something besides Shelves here. If not, then Shelves it is, and a few Chrome extension developers will get a late Christmas present.
Funny that programmers chose the phrase "Hello, World" while most of us are introverts.

pyrohacker, if you want to make any more changes/updates to the program before releasing it, let me know. It's a great app, and we want to get it screencasted as soon as possible. The way mouser and I know these apps are ready is when the authors change "Pledge" and/or "Early Beta" in the OP title to include the word Release.

My apologies for not getting Shelves finished in time for NANY. It's in a state where I can build it, and I believe it's ready for an initial release, but I have not yet developed a means of testing it. Other priorities came first this year, and it simply didn't get finished. (As far as screencasting goes, there wouldn't be much. Shelves doesn't even have a user interface; it's just an API.)

I know that Shelves will eventually be released, as I need it for further development of Goodness. Now just isn't the time for that release.
