As you may have noticed, I updated Bootstrap framework from v3 to v4. I had intended to stay v3, but I feel like it needs to move forward. Also gives me a reason not to be lazy. It also features a nice carousel, a component from Bootstrap… And a bunch of more nitty-gritty changes:

The Series Listing has also been rewritten using Reactive Search. This is an awesome React.js component because it automatically generates generic components (single list, range, search, result, map) based on the indices in an Elasticsearch instance. I also dropped the old search feature, because it’s slow – it was using Django/Postgres’ full-text search, which has terrible performance.

Reactive Search / Elasticsearch is the better search engine. Now, all I have to worry is populate those indices in background.

More to come!
