WebTorrent needs a website. Something simple and clean like the NodeOS site.
Let me help you on that @feross
@weblancaster feel free to take a stab at it. if it's good, we can use it as a starting point.
I might take a stab at it as well
Cool, thanks guys!
I think we should use bootstrap so we get something clean and maintainable, and it's easy for others to contribute. I've never used it before (I always write all the css myself, like on studynotes) but I think it will be a good starting point.
Sounds good to me @feross .. we can even meet if needed @wtfaremyinitials looks like you are in Chicago as well.
If you guys need some help with HTML/JS/CSS/slicing or whatever, please let me know. 👍
Adding atom.io as a great example open source site.
yeah, http://atom.io is great! http://browserify.org is also excellent!
Any progress so far?
Yes, there's been progress towards a website. There's a repo for the webtorrent website here: https://github.com/feross/webtorrent-website if you want to take a look.
Currently, there's a simple express stub site as well as a live bittorrent and webtorrent tracker hosted at http://tracker.webtorrent.io. The homepage http://webtorrent.io just redirects to this github repo. The trackers are using the bittorrent-tracker and webtorrent-tracker modules. The public webtorrent tracker, in particular, has been quite useful for developing the webrtc parts of webtorrent which is still ongoing.
There's also a page http://webtorrent.io/create where you can create .torrent files by just dragging-and-dropping files onto your browser. It's all done client-side with create-torrent.
Obviously, what's missing from all this is a nice, beautiful website that explains how everything works, documentation about the protocols, modules, and how to get started as a new user/developer.
We'll track progress for this here: https://github.com/feross/webtorrent-website
A basic website is live at https://webtorrent.io now. It was designed by @sashahilton00 - thanks!
Help needed! If you're looking a way to get involved with WebTorrent, please help improve the website.
Folks who send good PRs to the website will get commit access! The site automatically deploys whenever there are new commits.
The repo is here: https://github.com/feross/webtorrent-www
@feross, sorry I didn't manage to get any further, life got busy. i will try to add some more to it in the future, but for now the framework to easily add content is there :)
@sashahilton00 No problem! It's a great design and I really appreciate the work you put into it. I'm going to add a few new pages to it, but still looking for PRs to make it even better!
This will really help with WebTorrent adoption!
@sashahilton00 I just gave you the commit bit on the webtorrent-www repo!
