Weekly Update (May 30th — June 10th)

New Website & Video

In the beginning of June our website got a big overhaul in a collaboration between Diagram Office, a studio run by Sam Cox, and Praxis which is run by Nicholas Sailer. The guys did great work and rather than post pictures here I’ll just encourage you all to check it out and share your feedback.

The Installer

Over the last two weeks we took a good look at our website analytics and realized that something didn’t add up. We were seeing hundreds of downloads a day, but very few users managed to get Optic working on their machines. After talking to some of these users who failed to get Optic installed we realized our install process needed to be improved.

  • Installs the standalone Optic App
  • Installs Optic plugins to any supported IDEs on your computer
  • Launches the Optic Demo Project for you

Enhanced Transformations

As more users have gotten into Optic it became apparent that we needed to expand the scope of the transformations system. Over the last week and a half we’ve added support for the following types of transformations. You can check out their feature branches on GitHub now or wait for the next release that comes out this week.

Thank you everyone for your continued support. Stay tuned for the upcoming release. The new transformations will enable a lot more use cases!
