First public beta for wallabag v2

Last week, we published our roadmap for this year:

And do you know what? We are on 1st March. So, it's the beta day!

wallabag v2.0.0-beta.1

If you missed our recent blog posts, here are the main features of wallabag v2:

We have work to do on our API, you can have a look on this pull request.

What's new since last alpha?

We didn't write database migrations for this first beta, but this feature is planned for next versions.
If you want to upgrade your previous installation, please run this command bin/console doctrine:schema:update --force.

You can see the full changelog here: https://github.com/wallabag/wallabag/compare/2.0.0-alpha.2...2.0.0-beta.1.

Documentation

v2 documentation is already available (we still need to write some chapters), you can read it here: http://doc.wallabag.org

Our documentation is now hosted on ReadTheDocs.

Translate wallabag and documentation

Please read this page: http://doc.wallabag.org/en/master/developer/translate.html.

Third-party applications

Our applications (Firefox / Chrome addons and Android / iOS / Windows Phone) are not available for wallabag v2 but we'll work on them to change that.

Test wallabag

Keep in mind it's a beta branch, don't use it in production.

On a dedicated web server

If you don't have it yet, please install composer. Then you can install wallabag by executing the following commands:

SYMFONY_ENV=prod composer create-project wallabag/wallabag wallabag "2.0.0-beta.1" --no-dev
php bin/console wallabag:install --env=prod
php bin/console server:run --env=prod

On a shared hosting

We provide you a package, wallabag-2.0.0-beta.1.tar.gz, with all dependancies inside.

The default configuration uses SQLite for the database. If you want to change these settings, please edit app/config/parameters.yml.

Warning: With this package, wallabag don't check mandatory extensions used in the application (theses checks are made during composer create-project when you have a dedicated web server, see above).
Please read our installation documentation to see requirements.

On our demo platform

We published this version on http://v2.wallabag.org but please remind it's just a demo platform and we can drop database at any time.

You can create a free account on this platform.

Need help?

We are on Gitter (a chat platform), ping us! You can also open a new issue on GitHub.

How can you help us?

Test, test and test! Install wallabag v2 (see above On a dedicated web server chapter) and tell us if you have any problems.

Don't forget that you can also support us via Paypal, Flattr, Gratipay or Bountysource.

What's next?

We planned to released stable version on 3rd April. In one month. We have lot of work to release this version (see here our todo list). Maybe we'll release other betas before this deadline (the next version will probably be a Release Candidate, it depends on the quantity of bugs you'll find!).

We need help, feel free to contribute to this great project!
