A prototype for notifications was built as a project at a recent internal hack-week we had. Was pretty cool.

Was pretty well received. Not sure if/when it will be making it’s way into production, but it’s something that’s being thought about.

Mondays at 12:06am, Australian Eastern Standard Time

At least that’s when the cron job to update it starts. Takes a few minutes to run, so some time after that.

Just allow envato.com regular login to permit redirect to different websites. With somekind of a response.

Not quite that simple. There’s a client side handshake and token exchange, which is then verified server side.


There’s plenty of Open Source RoR OAuth Provider / Server options on GitHub

There are, but it’s not just a case of just running gem install some_awesome_oauth_thing. There’s a bunch of integration with existing internal systems that needs to be customised to get it all working.

Plus every time I’ve had to do any oauth coding (even with 3rd party libraries), I’ve needed one of these pretty quick…

+1 would be awesome.

Dunno when/if it will be tackled though.


Their entire backend is on Ruby on Rails

Mostly Rails. There are other bits and pieces of technology creeping in there too.

^ you’re a dev – they should shower you with these things :)

occasionally there is free swag lying around the office, but you gotta be quick. Usually miss out. Especially on the epic-rare-legendary collectors stuff :(

Well done devauthopers.

Sounded like it was a fun hack-week project. Mine was just boring backend stuff :nerdy:


After waiting 5 days for an initial soft rejection, I made the requested changes and my item got approved :)

And if eadz ever gets his other hack-week pet project across the line, you can buy his track using bitcoin ;) (don’t hold your breath on that one…)

Where can I buy some Envato Swag? Stickers, shirts etc..

If you find out, let me know… ;)

There’s a few new items that are limited release that I missed out on :( (I want my envato hoodie!)

Though, some sort of testing regarding search results is happening, because on codecanyon this is what can be seen in the source code of the page with any search results:
 <meta content="original" name="WT.new_sorting_method_test" />
  <meta content="100" name="WT.sales_boost_test" />
  <meta content="control" name="WT.qs_branch" />
http://awesomescreenshot.com/0ea2vkf52f
So: what we see now in the search results is from some temporary branch, displayed with the purpose to see how this affects the sales??

We had one in there for:

  <meta content="true" name="WT.item_title_uses_blink_tags_test" />

but it didn’t convert very well, so we disabled that pretty quick ;)

Maybe A/B testing?

This would be right.

Testing some tweaks to the way boosting is done. The A/B option you get depends on a cookie set for your session, so may well be different per browser.
