SAFE Network Alpha Release!


#250

I am using osx 10.11.5, I have the alpha launcher running, when I execute the demo app I get the message that it is installed successfully but the safe launcher doesn’t show any app asking for permissions. What am I missing?
I have set up the pac so I can see safe sites but the demo app is still not showing up in the launcher.

@optictopic I’m on same os as you and haven’t had that problem but just as a trouble shooting suggestion open up activity monitor and see if there are any other demo app or launcher instances running and force quit them. That’s something I had going on in a previous release on Mac and David told me to look there it solved my issue. Not sure if it’ll help but something to try till someone else gets to you


#252

I gave that a try but the Demo app is still not recognized by the launcher.


#253

Probably not the case but you are using the latest version of the demo app right?


#254

safe_demo_app-v0.6.0-osx.pkg


#255

You need to start the launcher, login or create account, then start the demo app. It won’t show up in launcher until then.


#256

I had assumed that downloading and installing the demo app was all that was necessary for the launcher to recognize the demo app. I did not see a demo app icon anywhere but when I did a search for the demo app the icon came up, so everything is good now. Thanks for the help!

Alpha looks good from here, no issues and still going strong. :thumbsup:

Out of 378 PublicIDs, fell 132 websites

Again, that’s all guesswork… let me know any I’ve missed.

I saw the SAFE network site. I was confused. I had to remember what an Alpha was. For a second I thought it was a release to market. No but its solid proof of concept. Its more than that as there is no second guessing on what can be done now. For instance, I don’t see caveats about latency ect. No, what I see is SAFE is about to get a browser, and the coin is coming and the continued claim that its a solid in many ways no compromise straight replacement for the clearnet. Its a miracle. Thank you.


#260

A lack of current discussion about latency has not made the issue go away. We are yet to see interactive applications such as live messaging.


#261

test 8 por favor? just sayin…


#262

Why are we not seeing any preliminary apps?
Are folks afraid of ideas being stolen, copied or name squatting?
I would have thought we would see something.
Anybody prepared to confirm they have something but are not prepared to show it yet for any reason?


#263

I have a few things as work in progress, but not ready for general consumption. I am sure others do too.


#264

So the reason we are not seeing yours is that they are not ready and has nothing to do with my points above?


#265

Correct. They just ain’t finished! :slight_smile:


#266

I’m building a few things. But none of them is more exciting than the demo app since that one mostly shows all current capabilities.

There might be a few people doing more exciting work using lower level APIs. Most of the applications being discussed rely on things quite far down the road map.


#267

Would be nice to see variations or alternatives even so :slight_smile:


#268

Probably people are waiting for some signs of this project actually working? Currently the safe network is still pre-alpha, beta is the stage when outside people can feel confident of not doing wasted work.


#269

Basic tools would be then used to build more advanced tools. More advanced tools would enable all kinds of services built by people who aren’t actually tool-makers. We’re still at the pre-basic tool stage.
