Is the wickeditor dead? :-(

Hi,

I love the wickeditor - but I am concerned about it’s future.
Yeah, I know it is FOSS, so it will never be pulled.
But it seems… if not dead, then stagnant? The last opdate on GitHub is more than a year old.
So: is wickeditor dead, abandoned, or are there movements behind the curtain?
Wick is very usefull, useable, etc, but I think we all know there is room for improvement…
(We’ve all seen the, sometimes impossible, sometimes very reasonable) wishlists on there forums.

So, can someone “in the know” answer this? Is there still a viable roadmap? Are there new and exciting plans?

In any case: thanks for this amazing software - I hope my feeling is wrong here!

regards,

Paul

I honestly was thinking the same thing.

yeah dude i know

They are still working on it as far know but every image and news are scatert around the internet :( so its very hard to find anyinformation about the upcoming update but here is what i know:

  1. New export Giu.
  2. Improvements in exporting files

and some other stuff but i can’t remember :frowning:

wick development has been silent for a very long time, but apparently stuff is still being worked on. Jovanny is/was making his own Wick Editor mod, so we might have that.

I feel wickeditor is already a great instruments but it lacks some tuning to be reliably usable as a production tool.
I perfectly understand the huge work needed to make it and i know how real life could interfere with the noblest project but I really hope this is not the end.

@Luxapodular

I would love to ear from one of the wick creators whats going on.
It’s quite some time they dont write in here and also what scares me is that apparently user
@zrispo
is no more :frowning:

I’ll write a post about it soon, probably next week or so.

Uh nice! cant wait to see it :D

Please do. I would like to contribute something since it’s opensource but I don’t know much about web dev, or javascript.

@Jovanny
c’mon let’s us know what’s going on
if it has to be painful let’s make it fast

I put it at the longe category… Like a week ago… Aren’t you part of that category? If you are a regular member, you should be able to see it.

I cannot find it. Can you link to it, please?

lost regular :(

If you guys can’t access the post, then let me guarantee you one thing:

  1. Wick Editor isn’t dead

Things might take time, but all will be worth it with some patience :+1:

I can access the lounge but I cannot find the thread.
sorry for my dumbness. could you tell me the title of the post?

@blurredPixels here

tbh i was thinking exactly that ngl

i read the post. As it 's closed I’ll reply here.
I’m really sorry of this turn of events
I had big hopes wickeditor could be a professional development tool as other opens source programs are.
it covered a specific niche (canvas animation) that has no valid, user friendly alternatives and the vast majority of the work was done.
The choice of using it as a learnig/introduction to programming tool in my opinion also limits its popularity and support from a wider audience
To be a little blunt as long as it is seen mainly as a stickman animations tool it may not catch the attention of many people
I hope the university is really going to develop it
any update of the situation will be welcome

btw is Luxapodular working for Adobe? (conflict of interest?)

@Jovanny
I’d like to contact you privately. As a moderator do you see my email? would you contact me?
