    Maybe it would be interesting for windy community to have an development roadmap

  • Administrator

    @Tomber42 We have so few resources that we need to think twice what to do. So far the ROADMAP exists but changes a lot on a basis of data we are able to get, and resources we have.

    Do you have any suggestions about the directions and features we are missing on Windy?

  • Moderator

    My suggestion :

    Satellit Pictures
    Rain Radar
    More forecast Models

    More Detailed forum
    Community translation project

  • Administrator

    Thomas that is also our plan. Today we will have new programmer in office so we will seeeeee.

    I personally work 10 - 15 hours a day and I am highly demotivated since there is nobody to replace me in writing super fast Javascript client side code.

    @ivo said in CHANGELOG.md:

    The boss is demotivated? Not good... Why you do not find programmers? Question of adequate payment? Or what is the problem?

  • I've been using Windity since it's early stages. And already then I thought it was pretty good. But now it's just mind blowing. I love how you can get all the information on one page. I am a professional pilot myself. I don't only use it for flight planning, but also for the daily use off work.
    I'm amazed how smooth the app works, considering it's immense use of available data.
    Well done!!

  • Latitude/Longitude Grid in 1 or 2 degrees increments...

    This Website is excellent and will be absolutely great when you offer an option for 1 or 2 degrees increments for Latitude and Longitude - as requested earlier - as the current 5 degrees intervals are totally useless for the average mariner...

    I operate a fishing fleet in the Caribbean sea and need to position my vessels on your map before reading the weather forecast and this is virtually impossible to do with the current grid set up...

    Excuse me for answering on an old subject, but can we find the continuation of this changelog somewhere?

    I just saw that Windy has released a new version, I was curious to know all the changes / additions.


    Thank you !

  • Administrator

    @Nyxtorm Hello, currently there is no changelog for the latest version.

  • Administrator

    @Nyxtorm Hmm we have to automate changelog publication somehow

  • | Premium

    Hello @ivo,

    Yes, that would be a great idea! We could test more precisely the new features and have a visibility on the latest bug fixes.
