Blog update #Feb'14 - Multilingual articles, sharing, kudos, seo optimisation

release

It has been a long time without a big update here, but not today. Today is the release day :)

  • Blog now support 3 languages - English (default), Russian and German. Now I will try to make all big posts in Russian too. German - is for my self motivation. In some time I should get enough knowledge of this great language to write IT post in it.
  • Posts and Notes are translated using different techniques in Yii2, it was a good experience
  • Share buttons - I have tried to make very light widget without tonnes of JS. Btw. need to prettify it and post to packagist.
  • Kudos - these cool smileys in the bottom on full text of the article. Don't know why, but I like it, just a quick and lazy "Thank you" button. Made it with localStorage to store vote status, so it does not pollute requests with Cookies. Also should be on packagist soon.
  • Automated deploy script - thanks to Davert and his Robo. As you can see on screenshot - it works. And I will definitely use it in future.
  • Lots of fixes inside and in HTML layout, but who cares ... :)
