    edited June 2015 in General

    I read a bunch of comments floating around LET/IRC and quite a few people asked that I reupload my original repo and keep going with the project. I honestly had no idea anyone even cared about Feathur until today.

    So here's the new repo: https://github.com/Feathur/Feathur

    I'll probably start fixing things over the next few weeks or months. I have a lot of things that I have to attend to at this particular moment however. I will be available on Obsidian IRC and Freenode as the user Feathur if anyone has any questions.


    NOTE: I will not discuss anything related to BlueVM in this thread. This is not a BlueVM thread and I'd appreciate it if you'd leave me alone on the subject.

      Just posting to confirm this the IP's match in case anyone is worried about any scams with it being a new repo.

      @Feathur I assume that means the rights to it were not transferred to CVPS as part of the sale?

      Had enough of the scams on lowendbox, lowendtalk is now being infiltrated by corruption so I have chosen to make an low end exit #lexit for now - you can find me HERE

      Correct.

      OK, so CVPS migrated customers to SolusVM because Feathur was crap? if so, how crap is Feathur? compared to other panels, which are free/cheap, is it OK ?

      I'd say it's better than any other free panel. I won't comment on why CVPS migrated the VMs. That's their business.

      I'd say they're scared of the better alternative to their "custom" panel, which is still SolusVM after all.

      I recommend Prometeus, the best provider ever!

      CVPS comment was

      One of the main issues with BlueVM performance was the Feathur control panel.

      that's why I asked the question. they specifically accused Feathur as the problem. the reality might be they want to have one platform, so are migrating customers onto the one they already use

      not interested to get into CVPS and their reasoning. more interested in Feathur and what future it has. would be more interested if it was license free

      It's AGPL. That's virtually license free.

      No. CVPS migrated to SolusVM presumably because they knew SolusVM and didn't know Feathur. Feathur does it's job as advertised on the tin. They're taking a bunch of actions, not because they're actually good actions to take, but because to a customer they sound good.

      any VPS providers successfully using it in production? ie, license-paying customers of Feathur?

    • Bruce said: any VPS providers successfully using it in production? ie, license-paying customers of Feathur?

      According to my data it looks like there are currently 26 active copies of Feathur floating around with 193 active slaves. We only collect the # of masters and # of slaves though... so I couldn't tell you who they are. However it's guaranteed at least some of those are hosts.

    • @Bruce said:

      NATVPS.uk did at one point. There is another NAT provider definedcodehosting using it production.

      Different.

      I really hope the best for Feathur. It would be great to see you continue development of it Justin! :)

      Having alternatives in the market place can only be a good thing.

    • So is licensing the panel the honor system? Because doing a search for "license" on Github didn't return anything for me.

    • @perennate I meant licensing for commercial usage, $3.50/server/month.

      techhelper1 said: I meant licensing for commercial usage, $3.50/server/month.

      It is released under AGPL. There is no restriction on commercial usage in the AGPL. The commercial license for Feathur came before they released it under AGPL. See http://lowendtalk.com/discussion/comment/384333/#Comment_384333

    • @perennate Thanks for the clarification. The website still has the cost on it as well, which is also why I asked.

    • I suggest to use composer and after all use somekind of excellent php frameworks (cphp is too "raw").

      Complete rewrite is needed that's for sure.

      Please don't cry.

      The $3.50 licenses effectively became donations to support the project. I'll probably update the site at some point to show that.

      Complete rewrites are a huge waste of time. You're better off enhancing things and removing what you don't like.

    • Maybe if you guys interested I can port to laravel framework

    • xDragonZ said: Maybe if you guys interested I can port to laravel framework

      Why does everyone think that it needs another framework? It needs to have cPHP removed and be a standalone. Frameworks get in the way and force segregation of developers due to the fact that some developers don't like X framework. If it was in Laravel I'd get a complaint a week that it needs to be in CodeIgniter. No more frameworks ><

      Nope, it will only improve the code quality, why? focusing only on code and not wasting time for updating third-party libraries.

      Feathur said: If it was in Laravel I'd get a complaint a week that it needs to be in CodeIgniter. No more frameworks ><

      Chosing framework is easy. Stick with CodeIgniter 3 (complete composer support).

      Laravel changes code too much every year.

      The code design seemed reasonably well thought out last time I looked at it.

    • From past experience, @Feathur just hates frameworks and got on my arse about rewriting in Yii a long time ago. While most dev's see the value of a framework with autoloading it seems he doesn't.

      Because you see the code differently from everyone else apparently and it is not well designed in structure. I mean SolusVM's code may just be a bit worse..

    • I have much love for Proxmox, but I admit that it's ugly with its use of the ExtJS framework that I moved away from using many years ago. However, it's still functional and stable - it gets the job done!

      Like @pcfreak30 and others, I firmly believe in the power of frameworks to assist with simplifying and beautifying an application code base.

      However, while this may be an open project, the majority of Feathur is still developed by a handful of guys. As such, the final decision for "big choices" like framework selection should rest with them.

      Ultimately, I'd rather have an ugly but fully-functional feature-rich application, than a pretty (both in looks and code) kinda-working fewer-featured one.

      Big thanks to @Feathur (Justin) who bringing the project back. I'm sure I'm not the one whose glad to see that the hard-work and effort of this open project was not thrown into the void.

      Lastly, instead of all of us arguing about frameworks or trolling the project, if we really want to contribute to the project then there are 33 open issues as well as a list of planned features that still need to be developed.
