2012/12/11 Leave a comment
Newebe new version is out ! Newebe is a social network where each user is independant, this provides several advantages such as data ownership, speed, ad-free… In a few words, we can say that using newebe is as good as talking around a campfire.
This version, the 0.6.0, aims to fill a hole noticed on every social network : open file publishing. None of the major ones propose to share his open files with his contacts. Fortunately, now you can do it with newebe !
Of course it comes with a whole new set of features :
- Contact tagging (contact lists)
- Full-text search for your microposts
- Python packaging, made by Majerti during PyconFR Hackaton
- Config file refactoring, made by Majerti during PyconFR Hackaton
- Public profile page (proof of concept)
- Fabric installation script
- Debian package
This upgrade requires to re-setup newebe from scratch (just keep your CouchDB installation), detailed instructions here.
Quick install (Debian) :
From your local machine :
apt-get install python python-setuptools python-pip pip install fabric fabtools wget https://raw.github.com/gelnior/newebe/master/deploy/fabfile.py --no-check-certificate fab setup -H myrootuser@myhosturlorip
Or directly on your remote box (debian testing at least) :
wget https://github.com/downloads/gelnior/newebe/newebe-server_0.6.0-1_all.deb --no-check-certificate sudo dpkg -i newebe-server_0.6.0-1_all.deb sudo apt-get install -f
What’s next ?
Here is the roadmap for the next release :
- front-end refactoring
- desing improvements
- UX improvements
Thanks to everyone who contributed to Newebe during the past 6 months !
