Front End

This week we completed work on the 1.1.8 release for the OpenBazaar reference client. The following features were added:

  • If the connection with the server is lost, the client will attempt to reconnect 5 times before showing the connection modal, and the status bar at the bottom of the app will show a connecting message when this is happening
  • The avatar can be rotated and saved in Settings/Page
  • The addresses in Settings/Addresses can be re-ordered by dragging and dropping–the first address is the default address
  • The follower, following, and store tabs have been made more efficient, so they take up less browser resources–this should speed up those views on slower computers
  • All languages have been updated with the latest translations from Transifex
  • Incoming data is now more effectively sanitized, preventing unwanted HTML tags
  • A bug where addresses that start with handles were malformed if you refreshed the app and loaded them from memory was fixed

2.0 OpenBazaar 2.0 In Client Search

  • Designed the 3rd party search experience within the client
  • Avatar and header images can now be loaded in the Settings/Page modal, and will show on the navigation bar and the user page
  • The guid is shown above the social information on the user page and clicking it will copy the guid
  • Various improvements to the styling of the views

SPECIAL EXTRAS! We have finished the build process and are almost done with deployment on a tool that will make setting up an OpenBazaar shop incredibly simple. We are finishing testing it in production right now then will work on beautifying it a bit before rolling it out in the next couple of weeks!
