Clay Development Changes in 2016
Posted by david on 06 December 2015 at 5:05 pm
I've worked on Clay for a while and it hasnt really taken off, which I can only be blamed for. This post is to explain why I think that has happened and what happens next. When I started building Clay, it wasn't meant to be open source. After working on it a while and changing it several times, I decided to make it more generic than I originally intended (to mak it more widely usable). By doing that, I got off track and never built what I originally set out to build. I have decided to suspend work on Clay as an open source project and build it into what I originally wanted. It's not far from it, but it will take some time to do because I have real world obligations. I have always leaned toward open source and something open source will come out of this, I just don't know what or how much. I can't consider this a failure, because I still have the Clay code base to use from here. My hope, in the very least, is to end up with a project like WordPress that has a community version. Finally, the good news is what I am building is, in my opinion, awesome and could be a big deal. Clay isn't gone, its just changing.
