Now on GitHub and Lighthouse

Posted: 21 Jul 2008 07:22 AM | Defensio, the blog


Good news! By popular request, we just started hosting our WordPress plugin code on GitHub! You can now stay up-to-date with our development effort and even help us by implementing the features you want. GitHub (and Git) make collaborating on software easy. Everybody can now fork our plugin to implement new features or fix a bug. We'll be happy to integrate any changes we feel will benefit other users. If you're not that much of a coder, you can still help! We definitely need people to test the freshly baked code you'll find at GitHub. Our GitHub page is at http://github.com/defensio . Oh... and if you don't know what Git is yet, you should definitely check out PeepCode's great video on the subject ($9, but worth every penny). We have also created a ticket tracker at Lighthouse. You can now submit your bugs or feature requests here: http://karabunga.lighthouseapp.com Happy collaboration!

Major upgrade coming

Posted: 10 Jul 2008 04:24 PM | Defensio, the blog


We've been working hard (very hard) over the past few months to drastically improve our backend code. These improvements will make Defensio a lot more flexible and should also lead to improved accuracy. We'll be rolling out the update in the coming hours/days. No data will be lost, but your statistics might go out of sync a little bit. We do not expect any downtime and the upgrade should be totally transparent to you. We'll keep you updated on Twitter . If Defensio doesn't seem to behave properly during the transition, please let us know. Thanks for your support!

Up-and-coming platforms opt for Defensio

Posted: 05 May 2008 11:56 AM | Defensio, the blog


There's quite a bit of action in the blogosphere these days and many new platforms are making their entry. Recently, two of them added support for Defensio: Habari , a "next-generation free software blogging platform" has gained quite a bit of momentum lately, It is considered a great alternative to WordPress. Plugin developer Matt Read had enough of spam and built a Defensio plugin for Habari. Although it is still fairly new, the plugin is apparently very stable and ready to use. Thanks for the hard work Matt, and to all Habari users: welcome to Defensio! Our other new friend is Aintablog (as in Ain't a Blog), an open-source Tumblog and feed aggregator written in Ruby on Rails by Pat Nakajima . The author built support for Defensio right into the core of the application. We, obviously, think it is pure genius. Good luck with your new project, Pat! For more information about Defensio support for these platforms, please see the Habari and Aintablog pages on our website.

Pixelpost 1.7 released, Defensio bundled in!

Posted: 14 Jan 2008 07:12 AM | Defensio, the blog


Our friends at Pixelpost just released version 1.7 of their popular photo blogging platform and guess what? They liked Defensio so much that they decided to bundle it in! The author of the Defensio plugin , Dennis Mooibroek , has been a big fan of ours for quite a while now. He was among our first "evangelists" and one of the first to volunteer to develop a plugin for his platform. His dedication and hard work resulted in an outstanding add-on for the Pixelpost community. Thanks to Dennis and everybody at Pixelpost! If you'd like to use Defensio in your own application, take a peek at our API at defensio.com/api .
