The Work on TravelFeed Continues

JPPhotography @jpphotographyMay 2019 · 2 min read

It has been a week since my last update regarding the TravelFeed beta. A lot has happened since and before we release the beta later this month, I want to share a few screenshots of what I archived in the past week of non-stop coding.



The "welcome" placeholder has been replaced with a proper dashboard that is as colourful as it is informative:

Location Picker

The editor has received a location picker: No more going to Steemitworldmap to obtain a code snippet, the location can be picked right from the editor! The selected location is not only saved in the json_metadata that populates the TravelFeed Hivemind, but also in a hidden Steemitworldmap code snippet attached to the post. For TravelFeed authors this means a chance to get curated twice!

TravelFeed map

Talking about Steemitworldmap.. You can now explore all curated TravelFeed posts on a map.

Discover New Countries - In the Sidebar

A collection of recently resteemed posts from a random country is displayed next to the feed in the "sticky" sidebar.

Explore Destinations

Explore posts by countries, subdivisions (state/province/..) and cities. You will also get a list of subdivisions or cities with existing posts that you can filter for.

Comment Editor

A new editor for comments. See your comments instantly after they have been published to the blockchain.


Boring Stuff

I implemented pages with placeholders and created the "Support us" page while @for91days is working on our terms of service, privacy- and cookie policy.

New Join Page with Statistics

The page for new user now shows some fancy statistics that are actually pretty impressive: There are over 10,600 #travelfeed posts (only counting valid posts over 250 words) from 1,150 different authors that earned a total of almost 100,000$ (after curation, excluding curation posts by @travelfeed)!

Very good ! Quite impressed of the work you have done. When I travel I am interested by the budget per day in the country, and the good adresses of restaurants, etc...What about adding these informations/tags?
