We at NearBeach are proud that we have finally achieved Beta stage. NearBeach is now starting to be more than just a simple minimal viable product. We have started to use it internally to help improve and shape it.
Short Term Goals
NearBeach has a few short term goals it would like to achieve. These are, but not limited to;
Releasing documentation on readthedocs.io
Releasing “How to” videos
More testing and bug fixes – there will always be buggs
Planning new features
Documenting how the development cycle will work in the future
Business planning – where do we want to take NearBeach
Construction of a community
Discuss improvements and remove pain points in the NearBeach software
There is still a lot of work to achieve during this time. We are hoping that we can help you with your next project.
Regards NearBeach Team

With the release of NearBeach Alpha 0.24.0, and the exciting plan that we want to escape from Alpha towards the end of this year (or early 2020), we are now facing an issue. The main issue is time – sadly we can not create any more than we have, and sleepless nights are not a help at all. Essentially we need help testing NearBeach
If you are interested in testing – thank you from the bottom of my heart.
We are currently working hard with version 0.23 to find and fix any issues. This has now become an extremely large task due to how large NearBeach has become over the last year. We have also started using NearBeach to plan NearBeach – this hopefully means we will find out improvements we could implement back into NearBeach faster.
Release 0.22.0 has reach the wild. This new release is the start of many new changes to NearBeach that will be developed and release during this branch. These changes are;
Deployment to pypi.org – NearBeach can now be installed using the PIP command making it easier to deploy NearBeach to a server. https://pypi.org/project/NearBeach/
Development of automatic testing – NearBeach will now under go automatic testing to help us determine when we break core functionality. Now that NearBeach has reach a certain size, it is getting harder and harder to test and find issues. Thanks to automatic testing tools like Browser Stack we can easily test
Update to our documentation – due to the recent changes to the core installation process
Deployment of CircleCI for continuous integration and continuous deployment
NearBeach recommends installing a stable branch like 0.22. You can find 0.22.0 on Github – https://github.com/robotichead/NearBeach/releases/tag/alpha-0.22.0

YAY. It is finally done. NearBeach’s 0.21 branch has been completed – however please wait till the 0.22 branch.
0.22 branch is starting on time and it will focus on bug fixing and polish. NearBeach went through a massive change in the 0.21 branch. We enhanced quiet a few modules, implemented the bootstrap module, and created a basic request for change module.
The 0.22 branch will be the first branch that we will focus releasing on pip. We still will release on github, however to make life easier for everyone, we are also releasing on pip. This will help speed up the install and update process for you. We will only be releasing stable versions on PIP.
One of NearBeach’s goal is to be user friendly. This includes a better UI/UX and adding in accessibility. NearBeach has fully migrated to Bootstrap 4.0 in the last couple of weeks to bring an improved experience.
The bootstrap library has been applied to most modules within NearBeach. There are a few modules that have been missed in the first stage due to enhancements already in the pipe line.
