Towards the end of last year James Weiner got in touch about 1bit, he’s an Oxford-based web developer/designer who i’ve had the pleasure to meet a few times at Pub Standards. He’d been using it on some client sites and wanted to add some new functionality.
Mark and I were too busy with work to add the features ourselves, but were happy for James (with some help from his brother Ben Weiner. The source for 1Bit is public and open (including the flash), so anyone can work on it if they like. Ben and James did just that and added the feature they wanted. Even better than that, they were happy to share the changes and for us to integrate them with the current version of 1Bit.
1Bit on Github
As a starting point for integrating these changes I’ve put the source for 1Bit on GitHub. I’ve been using Git for personal projects for a while and GitHub itself makes it easy for anyone to get involved, add code, fix bugs or fork a project entirely. It’s the natural choice for a project like this.
