Cachet Blog

A couple of days ago we released our new blog, dedicated to Cachet. Although the current website is built on Jekyll and thus fundamentally a blog, it started becoming a pain to write blog posts in - the same reason I switched this blog to Ghost too. I'll be writing…

Hold back features and ship!

Cachet has grown by a considerable amount over the last month as evidenced by the whopping number of stars on the project; 1339 people like Cachet and to me, that is a huge number for a beta product. A couple of weeks back I was ill which meant that our…

Intellitip - Sublime Text Plugin

Sublime Text development has started picking up steam once again. In dev build 3070, Jon introduced a very basic Tooltip API. I started playing around with it by forking the awesome IntelliDocs plugin. As a proof of concept I rewrote some of the original code in my fork and arrived…

Closing Anorak

I completely forgot to blog about this, however around a week ago I made the decision to temporarily sunset Anorak Anorak was my first big side-project in a long time - I've written a few libraries and packages, but nothing that I could turn into a business. Since Cachet became…

Yesterday a few of us UK Laravel developers were discussing setting up a meetup for Laravel developers in the UK. Originally it was going to be a conference-esque event, but we realised that we should start small. Thus Larameet UK was born. We're currently looking to see how much interest…

This past week we've been busy moving our websites to a new web host. It's been a fair amount of work and changes required, but totally worth it. One of the problems we were facing was outright infurtiating. We have a folder named images and within this folder we had…

What's next for Cachet?

At the beginning of the week I open sourced one of my newest side projects, Cachet. The original post was read more by more than 1700 different people and it's had a fair bit of interest from people around the Internet. For those of you who don't know what Cachet…
