New Upgrades!

Our frontend, backend, and just about everything else on our platform has been upgraded! We are now running on a new backend and are very excited to see it in action.

First, our frontend has changed drastically. We are featuring a new layout but we have also made some visual changes to the control panel. If it was not already, navigation should be smoother than butter. This was due to the rethinking of our business model and rebuilding and redesigning everything from the foundations and up! There are still some items that we plan to upgrade but by and large we have decoupled much of our third-party dependencies and have opted for a cleaner barebones approach to reduce excess clutter.

Our frontend servers have been completely converted to the new backwards-compatible HTTP/2. This gives us the opportunity to multiplex and push the resources required by the browser before they are requested. Through our decoupling process, we are also no longer dependent on large third-party libraries like JQuery! We have decided to opt for a pure native JavaScript approach. Lastly, upgrading our codebase to be more optimized for performance has resulted in a few extra kilobytes being shaved off resulting with a faster loading pipeline.

If you are a web developer and are interested in why we decided to roll-out with native JavaScript support, see our blog post on why we decided to make the switch and our opinions on a Native JavaScript future.

Our backend API has also be revamped and is now completely built upon a new framework. We have decided that this framework will serve as the future of our API's foundation. With it, we should also be able to process more client requests at once and at faster latencies with more throughput due to the lower overhead. As the majority of our API calls come from internal processes, this change has resulted in creating a smoother and faster architecture. Our new architecture should also be more than capable of handling any vertical or horizontal scaling with ease for the future to come.

All of this was done to help pave the way for our future and to create a strong foundation for our upcoming road-map. As a company we are very excited for the changes that are coming!
