Social Media Profiles
You can now create a more tailored profile bun, where you can link to all your social media channels in one place, we also introduce a profile picture in this special type of bun. A current requirement is that only signed in users can create these buns for now. You can try it out right now here
Users can now see an overview of the amount of clicks that their bun has generated. These are only available for signed in users that are viewing a bun they've created themself.
Go check out your buns and see for your self! If you don't have one you can create one here
Quick Buns 🏇💨
We're happy to present a new feature, namely Quick Buns! For users that don't want to create an account and just get a collection up quickly, this will hopefully fulfill that need.
Check it out here
Dark mode 🌑 and a new landing page
After a lot of work we have finally been able to rebuild the underlying design system and make it possible to add themes to our website. First out is a dark theme, the website will probably only run a light and a dark theme but your buns will see the possibility to run a bunch of other themes (this is the next feature we're working on).
At the same time we put a lot of effort into delivering a more clean and useful landing page that will be informative and helpful when reading up on our service.
We have been investigating ways to set up sending out mails, which should be done securely and in a sustainable manner for our organisation. In the end it came down to a service that we can connect to our own service, thanking the open source gods that this can be done almost for free. So, with that we've begun setting up the forgot password flow and later this week we will be able to roll out collab invitations by email.
There was a big change in infrastructure, where linkbun went from using AntD forms
to using react-hook-forms
which allows for partial updates of the application.
When we had refactored the forms, we gave it a spin and added auto save. This saves the form after no change has been made for 3 seconds. Which hopefully will be enough to save the form before users navigate to another page.
You can now collaborate with other users on linkbun, just head over to your bun, click "Collab" and add someone you want to collaborate with. It's currently not possible to invite someone by email if they do not exist on linkbun yet. But hey, send them a message to come build with you!
New landing page
A new landing page has been in the works behind the scenes and it was finally launched!
The groundwork has been laid so that the core functionality works! Yay!
