Tuesday Topics #49: Web Service Updates

Introduction

Hey everyone, this is Loren from Donut Team and welcome to Tuesday Topics #49!

This week, we pushed a massive internal overhaul of this website, Mod Bakery, the Safety Tunnel and, to a lesser extent, the API.

Web Service Updates

As stated above, we pushed a number of updates to basically all of our running web services.

These updates are primarily focused on cleaning up the code and moving away from our now deprecated internal library, Donut Box.

This was no small undertaking but, now that this transition is complete, I believe it will be much easier to iterate on these various websites.

You may also notice everything looks subtly different. When refactoring all of this code, I made various improvements to the stylesheets shared across all of those websites so I hope you appreciate these changes when browsing around!

Conclusion

That’s all I have for this week. My apologies for a short post, I’m currently dealing with some personal issues and unfortunately do not have much mental bandwith to allocate to writing this right now. That said, I’ll continue plugging away on improving the experience across our websites when I can.
