SteemPeak - Update v2.2 - Better Publish page and improved vote value estimation
A new version of SteemPeak is now available. The main changes in this version are on the Publish page layout and the vote slider value estimation. Keep reading for more details ;)
The new release is now live at https://steempeak.com
1. New layout for the publish page
The Publish page layout has been completely updated to accommodate some of the requests of our users. Now the editor panel and the preview can both be SCROLLED SEPARATELY and the layout of the page is fixed. Should be much easier to use for everyone writing a medium or long post.
As always feedback are much appreciated as we plan to keep improving this page in the near future.
2. More accurate vote estimation
After HF21/22 the logic to compute the vote estimation changed and I've never found the time to fix the slider on steempeak.com. Finally with this release the slider has been updated and the reported value should be more accurate (huge thanks to @revo that provided the logic to improve the vote value estimation and is a beneficiary of this post payout).
NOTE: Keep in mind that it will not be perfect, just a better estimation that almost match the effective vote value.
3. Layout adjustments when reading a post
This is a preview of the new page:
4. Backend rework and code refactoring
Also with this release I've started to improve part of the backend code to make it faster and easier to maintain. This change should make some part of the website faster without hopefully breaking anything :D
5. Reworked the 'action queue' to reduce errors
In the past few months I've seen some errors when casting multiple votes in a short period. This is more evident if using Keychain and was due to how the action queue processed the requests. I've reworked the queue to be more reliable (it was not originally conceived to work with Keychain) and the errors should not be too common now. Let me (@asgarth) know if you still experience some issues.
6. Remember the preferred view mode
This has been requested long ago by @jarvie and is finally available. Whenever you switch the view mode (grid/blog/list) the system should now save the new preferences.
7. Some minor bug fixes and minor improvements
As always some minor fixes and improvements across the website ;)
Support the @steempeak witness/proposals
Now is probably a nice time to remind you of the ways you can support the development of @steempeak.
Recently we submitted a proposal to the Steem Proposals System (SPS). You can review the proposal here and directly on the proposal page.
If you agree to the proposal and you think the points mentioned add value to Steem consider supporting it using the above links or directly with this link.
We also run a witness server to help produce the blocks for the Steem Blockchain. You can vote for our witness so we are in a position to process more of them.
- Using Keychain: You just have to click and approve the transaction
- Using SteemConnect: You'll need access to confirm the transaction with your Active Key at least
