One month after release
Welcome to the fresh Flax Facts! It’s our blog posts series about Flax development. Today we will go through the latest events and news after recent 1.0 version release. Fasten your seat belts and let’s take off!
Firstly, we should go over a simple summary of what we achieved during last weeks since the release. Here are some numbers:
- 20k people visited Flax Website
- 80k pageviews of Flax Docs
- 25k pageviews of Flax Forum (150 posts)
- 3k Flax Users! ❤️ (from 119 countries)
- 53 PRs merged into engine and docs
- 770 people on our Discord channel
Those values come from just one month after Flax officially took off with the 1.0 version. Meanwhile, we’ve started working on Editor for Linux, networking for games, and more cool features. The development team got empowered by many contributors from the community. Thanks for all your help and feedback! Seeing people using Flax is the best thing that could happen!
Tutorials & Reviews
Now, I’d like to mention some tutorials that are starting to appear about Flax. The project is in the early stage after release but seeing new and fresh content is very promising. Here are a few samples of videos as a starter:
Development and Contributors
It looks like many people liked that we’ve released the full source code of the Flax on Github. The project got almost 1.4k stars and is very active in terms of development. It’s also a place to report issues or discuss ideas.
We’ve also updated Flax Roadmap to reflect your requests and needs. Now, it contains a separate High-prio TODO list with tasks that we plan to tackle very quickly (1-3 months) followed by the normal TODO list. It’s a very good place to see what features we are currently working on and to track the progress (join our Discord to see development updates daily as we post frequently✨). Also, contributors can feel free to pick tasks for PRs to work on. Diversity of topics to play with is very noticeable.
Releasing Flax 1.0 was a huge relief to finally let people start using it. Now, seeing so much new and great content being made is just awesome (come and see #showcase channel on our Discord).
We plan to keep hard working on Flax and release major updates every 2-3 months with monthly bugfix updates.
If you have any questions feel free to ask them on forum or directly on Discord. Also, we plan to make Live Q&A with devs soon (eg. Flax codebase overview and engine usage tips & tricks). See you soon, bye! 🦝
