(My) Open Source Libraries

·346 words·2 mins

Over the past few months I’ve been receiving a ton of emails, tweets, G+ mentions and GitHub issues in connection with my open source libraries. So I thought I would set out what my plan is for them in the future, and the order in which I’ll be tackling the backlog.

The library which is taking up the majority of my personal dev time at the moment before it hits v1.0. I’ve done this library a bit differently that my previous ones as I’ve developed it in the open, whereas I tend to bring stuff up to a usable v1.0 state before releasing.

My plan is to release v1.0 pretty soon (within the next few weeks) and then leave it for a while while I tackle the bugs from my other projects below. So if you have any feature requests or bugs, now is the time to test the library.

To be honest, this library is in a bit of a mess at the moment. Looking through the code I do not like some of the ‘quick fixes’ I put in there. Which leaves me with two options: rewrite it, or quickly fix the current issues and then deprecate it.

My feeling at the moment is for option two as the first option is going to take a lot of time which I do not have. Either way, I’ll get it building with Gradle and publish the AAR to Maven Central.

I consider this library pretty feature complete, as it does what I want it to do - and no more. At the moment the only thing I want to do is create a Gradle build script and publish the AAR to Maven Central.

I deprecated this library earlier this year due to lack of time to maintain it. While that reason still holds true I do have this nagging urge to improve the API, bringing it more in-line to the API in ActionBar-PullToRefresh.

This may or may not happen, but it’s a possibility.
