A very happy #Hacktoberfest for Terrastories and the Ruby community 🎃

  • The application now has tests, which will make it easier to deploy Terrastories and make the codebase more resistant to future bugs.
  • A mini-map (aka overview map) to aid with geographical orientation was added to the top right of the map.
  • Spanish and Japanese were added as language options for Terrastories, and the Portuguese translation has been improved.
  • Photo and video content was added to the seed data, making it easier to demonstrate how Terrastories works in our demo and for future developers.
  • Restricted stories now feature a small lock emoji to show logged in users which stories are restricted, and which ones are not.
  • It is now possible to filter stories alphabetically (A-Z), or in the chronological order they were added.
  • The map view now zooms and pans to filtered stories once they are selected using the filter dropdowns.
Some of the new features like the sort dropdown, mini-map, and translation in the Japanese language!
