Roadmap and Bug To Fixes

Bugs in v1

  • Undo sometimes stops working.
Fixed
  • System to review the localStorage data and update any differences
  • Asciis sometimes open with 1 more block width and height
  • The layers and undo sometimes may have bugs, but seems hard to replicate.
To fix before properly releasing v1
  • Brush blocks larger than 1x1 can leave undoable blocks
  • The current mIRC importer will fail on C5, type blocks by discarding the , character when it should preserve it. art.txt ascii is a good example of this. 98% of txt ascii imported should be fine.

v 1.1

  • Fix brush tool for seamless lines when drawing fast
  • Warning on mirc export if ascii exceeds IRCs 512 per chat line limit.
  • Review encodings check on file import - UTF8 vs Latin something
  • Fill tool is limited by the recursion limit on the browser. Each browser has a different limit. Filling an empty 80x196 ascii will throw a recursion error on firefox, but not on Safari for this reason. We can review the fill feature in a future version of ASCII bird.

v 1.2

  • Half block editing mode
  • Dark / light modes, different themes

Mobile / Touch Screen support

Doesn't exist at the moment. While the underlying functions and code is compatible with mobile browsers from babel, the touch canvas events and text will need to be reviewed to work better with touch screens. For example while you can brush once, you cannot move the brush around.
