Coloban version 0.97.16 is available!

Coloban 0.9 with Vue 3 and Quasar 2

Wow, that wasn’t a walk in the park, but wasn’t a rocket science either! 🙂

🎸 We’ve finally moved Coloban to V3Q2 stack!!! 🎸

As we have had many things to re-design and re-think over the development time, we’d decided to actually re-build parts of the project from scratch. Yes, not always a great idea, but that allowed us to implement Vue 3, Quasar 2, Capacitor 3, Electron 13 support and gave an additional space for improvements and growth.

That was a really nice adventure and the project does feel faster/neater/friendlier now.

In short, Coloban project is a Chat application with implemented tasks management tool, which allows to communicate with teammates and create tasks in the same app with no need to switch between them. Any message (even the past one) can be converted to a task, so there is no need to create a long Tickets once again, when not needed.

It is a wonderful showcase of what a modern Javascript project can do with and would that be possible to build a multi-platform app with a really small team and a single code-base.

Thank you awesome Quasar team and personally Razvan for an incredible work!!!
