We just launched Developer News. Here's how you can use it

<%= @topic_view.topic.title %>
<%= @topic_view.topic.average_rating %> <%= @topic_view.topic.posts.count { |p| !!p.custom_fields['rating'] } %>

Yes - we had particular difficulty with the Gists, but you and I can add them back in. And yes - you can set your username to whatever you want. Fill out this form real quick and you and I can hop on a Google Hangout in the next day or two to get all this updated. https://freecodecamp.typeform.com/to/tKNT0S

I don’t see a way to paginate at the moment and the posts only seem to date back so far. Am I right in assuming that’s still in the works?

We had to turn off pagination because our servers were buckling under the auto-paginate API calls from 3,000 people scrolling down over and over :slight_smile: We will turn this on as soon as we’ve MacGyver’d a solution.

Hey team, this is very cool to see :slight_smile: and congrats on the big move!

We’d love to learn more about you modified Ghost for your needs and if there are any changes we can make upstream that would be helpful to feed back into the product.

I’m also quite confident we can help you get those lighthouse scores closer to 100. Do drop me an email any time on [email protected] if you want to chat :hugs:

Happy to hear you guys are on your own platform. Would be nice to have a search feature and when it says there are 600 + articles to be able to go back or keep scrolling to see them. The site is pretty responsive though, it loaded really fast! It’s using RoR for an API and Ember in the front?

Thank you for bringing our attention to that article, @tbrown! There are a lot of articles that are cut off like this for one reason or another. Should be fixed now, though some of the pictures are still missing.

Can we search the news section? I don’t see that option.

Is there a newsletter or a way to be kept updated for new articles?

Hi! I love the look of the new platform! Just to check, does submitting texts for publication still work as it used to and do the guidelines published here still apply?

I’d be happy to keep writing for FreeCodeCamp in the future!

@QuincyLarson I would like to have access to new freecodecamp platform as my blogs have lost few of it’s content and code blocks in formatting and I am getting mails from the readers.

I wasn’t aware of this happening to be honest, until now. Thank you @QuincyLarson for the eye-opener.

Yes, I am all in for freeCodeCamp News. Filled the existing author form and am looking forward to continue giving out helpful content to the community!

Hi,

Do you think it will be easy to spawn new publications based on your open source work? That would help smaller publications with specific targets to exists without Medium, without the technical difficulties such a goal would involve.

The support for other languages is really HUGE news. FreeCodeCamp is appreciated here in France but sadly the facts that articles are in English is a big limit for many people, often the one that would benefit the most from those articles.

Hi @QuincyLarson, great to hear that freeCodeCamp still values openness and free access to information and educational content.

But I noticed a few bugs regarding one of my Medium articles on your platform.
This post is completely missing all the code that was inserted using gists which makes him completely useless for the readers. I don’t have an account yet and therefore can’t fix these problems on my own.

It would be great if you could fix these problems and thanks for your time and great.work.

I’m thrilled to hear this news. I’ve noticed lately that Medium has been asking me to put my articles behind their paywall at every turn. I’ve declined because like fCC I want to make all of my content accessible to anyone who wants to view it.

I do have a question though, if we submitted articles for publication on Medium before the move what happened to those? Have they been moved over to the News platform? If not where can I resubmit those?

I also just filled out the form to be an author on News as well.

Again, I’m very excited for this change and look forward to the great articles here on the new platform! :smiley:
