    July update will be short one.

    During last month I have made progress with users lists in Misago 0.6, designing new and better looking user cards for ranks links, creating new pagination component for Ember.js and finally implementing API for obtaining users belonging to rank, online or most active.

    I've also did little styling work on Misago to make it look little more "material like", however at the end of the day I'm not really the fan of how it came out, plus at times its more like iOS8 than Material Design.

    Quite predictably, since I've picked full-time work in advertising agency number of hours I am putting into Misago has dropped, slowing progress greatly. However I am determined enough to keep working on Misago 0.6 to eventually deliver.

    When will 0.6 happen? I hate to say it, but it looks like Misago is now one of those projects that you forget about only to spot release announcement on django-users/hackernews/reddit few months later and go "wow, nice, I've tought its dead".

    Looks great!

    Sweet. :-)

    Maybe you should announce your updates on reddit. ^^

    I am holding out with that until I have something really tangible to show. Reddit's attention can rocket project into fame, but can also bury one to obscurity.

    I announced mine there. None of them gained really much attention.

    Ember is big js. It is problem on mobile(android,wp,ios). Chrome crash on pages with big js. Rwd problem, because loading Full js file on mobile web browser. Careful with js in touch devices.

    IMO the mobile UI does not require much JS at all.

    Those days I'm strongly consireding dropping Ember.js for sake of custom abstractions over lighter JS framework. Its weight was one reason, but other things that got me thinking was obscene frequency at which they added deprecations to commonly used API's, limited references and examples, "opinions" that made me raise eyebrow more than once, abysmal performance of Ember-CLI on my MBP mid'10 and annoying level of complexity and abstaction behind some features that was cool if magic fit your way, but as soon as you wanted to define loading template for specific route instead of its children, things required you to make directories inside directories for their convention to catch them.

    Currently I'm toying around with Mithril.js as option. Alternativelly I'm considering Backbone.js with React.

    Mithril is very fast and small js.

    To be honest this is looking great. Hopefully it does get somewhere!

    I am now strongly leaning towards continous delivery model, ergo setup preview installation somewhere in the webs that will be running latest master so current/potential contributors will be able to see progress on project, report issues, and contribute fixes or features, but that would need some contribution guidelines and deployment setup.
