New features, as of September 3rd 2014

Today we updated the Growstuff website and have a bunch of great new features, including:

  • A crop "suggest" widget, instead of an unwieldy dropdown, when you are planting, harvesting, or saving seeds
  • We now show the most popular crops on the crop browse page, by default, rather than showing them in alphabetical order.
  • For those of you not on the metric system, you can now record your harvests in ounces
  • A couple of features for the benefit of our volunteer crop wranglers: we've made it easier to add scientific names to crops, and provided a list of other crop wranglers on the crop wrangler homepage.

We also have a couple of bugfixes:

  • Fixed a bug with harvests where "pints" were being recorded as "pings"
  • Fixed a broken link on the contact page

And under the hood, our developers have improved our code by:

  • Upgrading to Bootstrap 3.2 (this is our front end CSS library, that makes the site look and feel the way it does)
  • Improved our test coverage by about 6%

Lots of good stuff here! Huge thanks to the many developers, testers, and other contributors who helped out with this release.

Looks good! I really like the suggest widget.
