  • 28 May 2017HTTPS Secure Connection is available!

    You should be able to connect securely now on https://kanji.koohii.com.

    Please note I haven't tested the website thoroughly yet. The SSL certificates were installed last Friday. I haven't had much time since and the heat is killing me right now ;) But it seems like the website runs just fine and won't require any significant changes.

    I also didn't have the time yet to create redirects and such. Therefore you may want to bookmark the https link above if you want to use it now. When I have time I will setup redirects so https will be the default.

    Using the https link above you should see the green "secure" sign in the browser location bar, indicating the connection and authentication (ie. your passwords) are sent over an encrypted connection.

    The Koohii Forum will require some tweaks however so it doesn't quite work at this moment over https.

    Thank you

    This month there are two new patrons on our Patreon! Thank you so much. It really helps. I thought the Patreon had stalled and it's really uplifting to see the support.

    Long time members know the site updates have been quite random. I wish I could provide more regular updates. On the long run though your support is what kept me going and brought important updates such as multiple edition support, custom keywords, better mobile/responsive experience, and this year the open source project on Github!

    Right now I am basically enduring 30+C heat in an appartment under the roof with little ventilation. The rent was good for saving money while I returned to live in Brussels. But now I need to move to a better place with a bit more space as it's impacting my morale. Health wise though I am doing pretty good overall no complaints :)

    While looking for a new place in June I don't expect to make significant updates to the website. However the secure connection was the most urgent and it seems the website works fine over https so that's out of the way. I am looking in a bug recently added to the issues list. Please don't hesitate to comment on issues as it's one of those things that can motivate me to look into, or prioritize. And you never know, it may motivate contributors as well to look into.

  • 28 April 2017Update on HTTPS and important announcement

    UPDATE Fixed a connection loss error during flashcard reviews. Thanks ellie! See github issue #104. If you lose connection during a review, you should now see the "Reconnect" dialog and resume connection to the server.

    I wrote an update on Patreon regarding the HTTPS and moving to a new server (most likely). I also make an important annoucement about "taking a backseat" so to speak to the website, and my hopes for the open source project.
