I need some few users (about 3) to help me test the performance of my Air Calendar Lite (without scheduler) plugin that I will be releasing in about 2 days time (assuming the testing is successful).
What is Air Calendar Lite plugin?
It is a plugin based on the FullCalendar library (same library the bubble calendar uses).
It’s goal is to address 3 main concerns with the current bubble calendar plugin.
Performance : Many users complain that the bubble calendar is too slow. This is because the calendar loads all events on page load. Instead Air Calendar loads events based on demand based on the current view by exposing the current view and its end and start date (this can be used to constrain the events fetching).
Customization : Air Calendar doesn’t come with any navigation buttons. Instead it exposes workflow actions allowing you to design your own buttons and layout. The only thing not customizable is the calendar grid (you can actually customize that with CSS).
Features : FullCalendar has tons of features most of which the bubble calendar doesn’t expose. The goal of Air Calendar is to make available the most desired features.
The bubble calendar is based on FullCalendar v 1.6.4 (released in 2013). FullCalendar was completely re-written this year. Air Calendar is based on the latest FullCalendar v4.0.1 released just about 3 weeks ago, so it is very current.
Can I help you test?
Yes if the following applies to you:
Be currently using the Bubble Calendar in either a production/live application.
Currently experiencing speed issues with loading events into the calendar.
Has several hundreds ( ideally thousands) of calendar events for a long period of time (over 6 months) in their database.
Has about 10 minutes to spare. You will need about 5 minutes to read the documentation and 5 minutes to setup the plugin.
What does the test involve?
- Read a one page documentation on how to install and setup the plugin.
- Create a blank page and add the calendar.
- Compare the speed of events loading to your existing Bubble calendar.
- Send me your results, impression, recommendation, etc.
What’s in it for me?
As a thank you for your time, you will get to use the plugin free of charge for any one application of your chosen.
The plugin will be sold on the bubble plugin store for about … (still thinking about the price)
Does this come with the scheduler?
No. That will be a separate plugin (much higher price because of the licensing).
Ok i’m in, what should I do?
Just send me a private message with the name of the your app you want to use to test.
I will grant the app access to the plugin and notify you.
Sure. See demo and editor page and documentation ( incomplete) links below.
