Working on large CSS codebases is pretty hard. You know there is a dozen of different variants of black used and everyone seems to mix px with rem and %. Project Wallace will show you all of this over time!

Gaining traction

Responding on Twitter to the redesign of CSS-Tricks yielded a lot of new traffic and new account. No paid accounts so far, but at least it means that a lot of people are interested in Project Wallace as a product.

Email is the hardest thing ever

I'm currently in the process of setting up a password-forgot workflow. That in itself isn't hard, but the amount of stress I'm experiencing for setting up DNS records for email and such is beyond me. I hope to close this chapter soon so I can focus on building a great product again.

Introducing paid plans

Yesterday evening I introduced paid plans on the website. After you've registered you can now upgrade to a paid plan, which for now allows you to have more projects than a free plan.

There are two main reasons for the paid plans:

  1. Covering costs. Eventually, this project should be able to give me some fun-money on the side. At the very least, it should cost me nothing more but my time.
  2. Dedication. I hope to get some serious usage out of the website. I need the feedback from active users to improve the site. My hope is that paying users will be a bit more generous with feedback than free users. After all, you're spending a bit of money, you might expect a working product for that in return.

Fingers crossed!

CSS Analyzer is on NPM

A lot has happened in a year, but finally the core of Project Wallace is now on NPM! This is my first package ever published to NPM, so I'm perticularly proud of that. :)

CSS Analyzer released as Node module on GitHub

Previously the heart and soul of Project Wallace was a secret PHP fork of Parker and CSSStats, but now it is a Node module. It is based on the AST that PostCSS provides. And it is no longer private, but publicly available in GitHub!
