There’s a new version of abcjs. It has some bug fixes in general, support for the overlay feature of ABC, and improvements to the npm packaging.
Behind the scenes, I’m improving my testing scaffold and experimenting at the same time. For years, I’ve had a suite of over 500 ABC strings that test various parts of my code and I’ve run them as part of a Rails program. I’m not doing any Rails anymore, and I decided to rewrite the program in Laravel, with a Vue front end. This is also an experiment to see if I should start recommending that environment for projects that are basically JS apps, but require an API.
So far, so good. I like that it is PHP because that means that it is really easy to deploy. I don’t like working in PHP much, but version 7 has really improved.
