This week in the Holoverse | Week ending 20th of June 2021
This weeks development news was centred around a bug that was found last week in Holochain. This has held up the next release of Holo. This release or one soon after will see invited community members access Elemental Chat via a browser. This is an important release that should mark the completion of the next milestone on the Holo Hosting roadmap which is Hosted Elemental Chat on Holochain RSM.
This week there has been good and bad news on the bug. The bad news is that it hasn’t been fixed yet. The good news is that it has been identified as a bug in the Wasmer component that is used in Holochain. Now that the bug has been identified, the Holo Hosting team have been able to write a workaround for the bug so that the team can continue working towards the next milestone.
This workaround won’t be needed after the Wasmer team have fixed their bug. Even though the Wasmer developers have been very receptive, it’s better to implement a workaround instead of waiting for work to be done by an external team.
Although bugs like this can be frustrating, they are to be expected in this kind of next-level development. Bugs like this slow one area of development but other areas of development continue on.
During the week the Holo Hosting team also mentioned the work on Host Console and HoloFuel hApps are moving forward. This work represents the next 3 milestones on the Holo Hosting roadmap after Hosted Elemental Chat on RSM. With this in mind, we see future milestones being reached far more rapidly.
Holochain Dev Pulse 98
This week also saw the latest Dev Pulse from the Holochain team. A major component in the Holochain ecosystem becoming the backbone of the next Internet lies in developer adoption. This developer adoption is clear when you read each blog from the Dev Pulse series and this edition is no exception.
Some of the highlights in this edition are:
- the Holochain Gym, where you can explore Holochain concepts and learn the building blocks of developing with Holochain.
- the Holochain Open Dev Libraries where Holochain developers share open-source code libraries.
- an update about Holochain in Action, a Holochain developer group.
- Holo-REA a toolkit for cooperative economics reaches maturity.
If you have some time to delve deep into what is happening in the Holochain ecosystem, then reading Dev Pulse 98 is a must.
