New version of @crashcatch (crashcatch.com) is now available with a completely redesigned user interface making it even simpler to manage your crashes and errors.

#buildinpublic #buildinginpublic
Major new version of Crash Catch being installed tomorrow. Been a huge amount of work and I think makes the user interface much cleaner and nicer compared to the current version.

#buildinpublic
Working on a new landing page for @crashcatch but I can't make up my mind whether I like this part or not. I'm trying to emphasise a portion of the web page without so I've blurred background and enlarged the bit to focus on.

What do you think?

Finally figured how to make a mentions box appear next to the cursor instead of floating in some odd place as it does currently.

Hopefully the new version of @crashcatch will be out in the not too distant future

Weird thing with @crashcatch. I've been getting signups recently, around 5 in last month.All register, create new project and then nothing.

I've reached out to get some feedback, I've looked at logs and alarms to see if somethings failed but everything looks OK

Progress has been slow the last couple of weeks. Work has been a bit hectic the last few weeks so not had time to work on @crashcatch much.

But some progress has been made, here's the new layout for viewing an issue

#buildinpublic
Completely reworking the dashboard to make it simpler and cleaner to manage projects. This is the finished page yet but its a good start I think.

#buildinpublic
Working on cleaning up and rethinking the layout a little for Crash Catch as find it a little cluttered.

Reworked the login, think it looks much cleaner. Left is old and right is new

#buildinpublic
Backend rewrite is all done for @crashcatch. Now working on the migration scripts to copy the data from the old DB to the new DB - think it might take a while to run when I have 1/2 million crashes in the DB.

@crashcatch nearly got its first user but suspect I've lost them due to a bank issue (not my side) so have done a blog post explaining what happened

Started working on the re-write for the backend for @crashcatch but making some improvements to the frontend as well.

First one, improving the forms. I've taken some UI/UX tips from @vponamariov and applied it to the login form

#buildinpublic
When I started working on @crashcatch I didn't focus on mobile support as rightly or wrongly suspect that the majority of the time any crash reports would be looked on a desktop/laptop screen so mobile didn't display correctly.

Finally managed to get iOS reporting working for @crashcatch (with a caveat that it doesn't support unhandled exceptions). I'll do a blog post about why. This has taken a lot longer than I had hoped, much more complicated than any other language I've done.

Fixed a possible issue with how @crashcatch showed stacktraces from #reactjs project.

Can't stress enough how important it is to use your own project as you find issues (bugs or UX issues) that you don't pick up during testing.

#buildinpublic
Preparing opening up access for private betas on @crashcatch and while putting it together and doing final testing, found the crash/error engine could crash it sometimes if a ReactJS project submits a crash. Glad I caught that before making that available 😱

#buildinpublic
Successful weekend. Managed to pretty much complete the docs site for @crashcatch. Just need to add a section about the custom Crash submission API.

#buildinpublic
Managed to create the landing page for @crashcatch for when the release is ready later on in the year.

Not bad first time using @tailwindcss even if I do say so myself 😀

Let me know what you think

#BuildInPublic
Some good progress integrating my status pages (status.boardiesitsolutions.com) into @crashcatch so you can easily see service status specific to Crash Catch

Still on target to do a Q1 early access preview Q1, you can join the wait list crashcatch.com
