(couldn’t get the MaidSafe Demo App to work on Alpha, so I just made this clearnet version. Still works well if you’re using Firefox / Chrome etc AND LAUNCHER, which is the only way to use Alpha that I know of)
Alpha was soooooooo much bigger than the TEST 11 one, so this one took a lot longer sorry. This literally has EVERY unique site that exists on Alpha. Hope you guys like it! Still working on ways to automate everything.
Now it’s time to dive into SD etc with safe-js to learn how to start making these sites dynamic!
I don’t know how it’s possible to find everything… it’s not made apparent, unless some change has occurred… all that I list are the ones I can guess or find easily by brute force. Any more obscure ones will likely stay hidden until declared. Hence the list of [PublicID exists but no known website or service content] on mine and many others then I expect that the PublicID is less simple. If 80% of everything is simple, then perhaps 20% is below water.
I only suggest it because I wonder the obscurity is a feature to some… if you create a bitcoin address like url, then it would be a game finding it. I don’t know, what is planned for shared private access.
I’m still finding all that rather confusing and the information seems to be spread out all over the place. I think there needs to be more comprehensive tutorials written on it. You know x line of code does this, y line of code does that. More code examples on how to produce x, y or z result. Step by step stuff all in one place. I shouldn’t have to reverse engineer a website if I’m trying to learn code in the first place.
Well my overall response to that is that yes there needs to be better documentation and yes I’m working on that (see my all in one tutorial site for new devs on my Github), but also SAFE is not at that point yet.
I only really know safe-js so far (and not even all of it yet) but even that is about to undergo radical changes / become obsolete once MaidSafe releases the Authenticator (which will replace the Launcher) in the next week or so.
So finishing my all-in-one tutorial website would be pointless as it would be obsolete in a week or so from now.
And if you want to be a dev then go for it but don’t have all these expectations about what you “should” and “shouldn’t” have to do.
If you want to code for SAFE or for anything, you need to try things and run into walls and break through them here and there.
It’s still early software so everything isn’t perfected yet so if you actually want to dev here then you need to accept that
But that being said, I’m still working on bringing down the learning barrier, like many others are and the lower it goes, the more app devs we will have, which means more great apps will exist
So, I’ve done a rough pass update of Alpha directory.
No surprises that I saw from that but I couldn’t get the Demo App to authorise to update the old version, despite being logged in ok to the account… I won’t worry about that given that suggestion the launcher is being replaced. New account uploaded easily; so, the update is at yvette2 instead.
Demo app is there for Alpha, it’s just an earlier version… I had to use it to upload the new list. It’s just giving a ‘Failed to authorise with launcher.’, against very old accounts of mine… but new accounts work. Some bug then I hope will disappear in whatever is the new.
