Stepping back from Signpost development

Filed under: Software Development & Programming — Tags: — Matthias @ 9:25 am

No post in such a long time, and then it’s even a sad one. I just wanted to reach out quickly and tell everyone who may be using my Signpost library for OAuth that I have ceased development of it. I am now looking for people willing to take over development and maintenance of the project.

Why is that? Well, I develop software not only for my day job, but also for fun. Developing Signpost hasn’t been fun anymore lately, since I was only fixing odd issues related to incompatibilities with all the different OAuth service providers out there. Moreover, I am putting all my effort into evolving the Android tools landscape for build automation and testing now, which I find to be a more challenging and also interesting and fun area. (If you’re interested, make sure to check out Jason Voegele’s Android plugin for Gradle, and also Calculon, an awesome Android test DSL I am developing).

That being said, give me a shout if you’re interested in taking over the Signpost project! I’d find it most disappointing to see it die.

Now have a fun and productive day.
