New Growstuff features

We just pushed a new production release to the website, with the following changes:


  • Support for alternate names for crops was added. Look for search to come soon.
  • Added many tomato varieties
  • When you mention a crop in a post, that post shows on the crop page
  • We will soon be sending reminder emails to update your plantings
  • You can post photos of your harvests as you record them
  • You can now mark a planting as "finished" and give it a date for that
  • Member profile pages have had a visual refresh


  • You can now go up to a month before you have to log in again
  • Fixed an issue with selecting a set/album from Flickr
  • Fixed a Markdown-related bug with linking to crops and external links in posts

Other (mostly of interest to developers):

  • Created backend infrastructure for localised/translated versions of the website
  • Moved to Ruby 2.1.2
  • Improved code generation with "rails g scaffold"

Check it out and let us know what you think! And thanks @maco for the help with the release :)
