Next Stage for Mockjax
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Jonathan and the many other contributors for committing their time and energy into the project and confirm that I do plan to keep working on the project, hopefully along with a couple of my co-conspirators from appendTo: Doug Neiner and Jonathan Creamer (if they'll agree, that is). We recently released version 1.6.0 of the library and we are already planning for version 2.0!
Some Thoughts on OSS
For now that community is myself and the other core, regular contributors to Mockjax. But anyone who wants to voice their opinion is welcome to do so. New feature pull requests will remain open for a while to allow for comment, and ultimately someone will have to make the decision whether to merge or not. And again, for now that is myself, Doug Neiner, or Jonathan Creamer. If you would like to discuss a new feature you have an idea for, please feel free to open an issue on Github and we can chat about it there.
What About Version 2.0?
We're going to be completely reorganizing the codebase (such as it is) for version 2.0, including adding some better testing tools for our own code, and some better organization for the various files. Additionally, we'll be trying to "clean up" the library with better modularization and adherence to coding standards. But of course, what you're really interested in is features, right? Well, we have a couple things planned, but really the library won't be implementing anything terribly crazy.
There are some nasty bugs we want to fix, but those may require some more significant changes than we were hoping for in version 1.6.0. Additionally, we'd like to rework the access to internal data by the calling code, which means changing how things are stored internally. The basic idea is to make your front end testing as easy as possible without the need for external services. We're happy to entertain any other feature ideas, just add your suggestion to the Github issues list! And as for when 2.0 might be released? We'll see... right now the entire set of core contributors are figuring out what's next for themselves!
