Building Formula: A close look at the icon

Formula is a great product and is receiving a lot of great feedbacks and since the beginning of this year, I was planning to make a full redesign to it, for two reasons: 1) I can and I love to code 2) it’s growing fast and the sometimes it fails within the design. So, this […]

Meet Nomi-PC: My new machine

These last few weeks have been very intense for me and one of the things that happened in those last few weeks was the long awaited message from the Post Office: “Object left for delivery”. Ahhh that message delights. My computer was coming. So, I used my old notebook for a while, and it’s pretty […]

Hello WordPress, how are you?

If you follow me for more than one year you probably know that I’m a Windows developer and also, a aspnet developer. I start on the web business with aspnet (after the Blogger). So it was natural for me to write my own CMS (like WordPress) on aspnet. And that was what I made. You […]

Going beyond translating a website

So a client had made one little challenge to me, put his website in English, Portuguese and Spanish. Easy peace. For sure make this is pretty simple, and I had been doing that for a couple of year, websites with more than one language: I have some experience with that, so why did I doubt […]

Developer note: the difference of v2.1705.188 to v2.1705.189

Hey my people, Saturday I released one new version of Formula – Universal Code Editor, with incredible fixed for bugs that was annoying a lot of people, like saving files with only one line. And besides that, now it has a privacy policy, as I understand that this is a product that is growing up […]

Released Formula v2.1705.189 – see what’s new

I’m glad to announce that today, I’m releasing a new version of Formula, with amazing new fixes. And before that I had to say something, about Dark Mode: I’m receiving  a lot of great feedback about it, and I do love the dark mode (if you haven’t seem, I’m building one Edge extension to transform […]

What is Terre? What is changed?

If you followed me into the last year you probably heard about Project Terre. This is the codename for all my applications. Terre is “world” in French, and all projects has a name of one city. Quebec for Formula – Universal Code Editor, Nice for Random 42, and so on.

When I started the project terre, the biggest deal was to release one app each week, and it was a success! But with this to keep the project was a big deal. And I started to work in the Core. The core.

The core is a class library with all data, and all components that is synced with the apps (except Formula), it started with some methods, and later with some pages and images.

So, now that you understand what Terre is, here is what have been changed:

  • More Core experience: The Core project was a portable class library, and that wasn’t enough, so it was changed to Universal Apps Class Library. In this way, it is simpler to work on it.
  • Same solution: All projects is now under the same solution. Why? Well, because of the core experience. This makes it simpler to develop and makes sense, since the apps is in the same collection.
  • Dropping support: It is official, for now on, Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 won’t be updated and will be removed from the store. I’m not developing more Win8.1 and WP8.1 apps.

Three changes, big ones, that will impact in how I develop this apps. So, news is coming and maybe new apps. I just can say that there is a vtn_impressive2017 branch in the GitHub.
