A Better Snipt.org is Coming… Tomorrow.

Hey coders! It’s been far too long since my last post! The site update I talked about in my last post got slightly delayed because I have been torn between multiple simultaneous projects, but that’s no excuse!

As you may have noticed (and as @rbarr99 pointed out) Snipt.org twitter logins are down at the moment. This is because twitter has shutdown all support for its basic-authentication method (which is what Snipt.org) uses. No worries though, the new version of Snipt.org fully supports oAuth, something twitter has been encouraging, and something you guys have been requesting for quite some time.

The new site is mostly ready to rock. I am but one person, so I am sure there are bugs and things that may have slipped through the cracks, but I am hoping the community will work with me to point them out so that I can remedy them as soon as possible. I encourage you to use the feedback system to identify bugs and I will fix them ASAP.

This is just a heads-up. The new site will be rolling out saturday night (9.18.2010). I will post up with all the cool new features coming in the new release but for now I just wanted to keep everyone informed. All your embeds and snipt boxes will be fine, the only thing I am a little unsure about is the stability of the API in this release, but with your help I’ll get everything back to rock solid.

So keep your eyes peeled, and be expecting some downtime Saturday night as the new site rolls out. As always you can reach me anytime day or night on the twitter! Thanks again!
