Versioning plan

August 15, 2017 at 8:31am
The README currently says
NOTE: This is currently in alpha. While unit-tested, it doesn't yet have a lot of real world project exposure, so there'll be some edge cases we haven't covered. Please try it out and submit bug reports!
I think this is not true anymore with the recent work by and and all the bugs that've been fixed.
Let's make 0.3.0 the first "beta" version and announce it as such? I'd love to publish an article on Medium about the recent improvements we've made, does one of you want to kick that off? If you just start writing a draft and send that over to me I can add you to the styled-components publication and we'll make it official.
Also, what do you think about going for a 1.0 after #70?

Also, I might be mistaken about the above, so please correct me if I'm wrong.
I don't think so in this case. I agree if we'd put out an actual stable version before that that would be under the @latest tag (i.e. the one that gets installed) and people can opt-in to the beta by using npm i [email protected]
In our case though we've only had an alpha version so far and we're now upgrading that to be called a beta version
There is no stable version though so that's what you get when you install
It's mostly just a marketing thing 😉
Yeah I think I agree that the understanding you express of alpha and beta @ismay are only for 1.0+, that's at least my understanding :)
I'm just writing the last characters on a rough draft and then I'll share it here
there we go
haven't looked much over it so go easy on me ;)
but yeah I don't feel any strong ownership so it's up to you whether you want to give me suggestions and have me change it or just take it, edit it and publish it, no consent needed.
Do you have a Twitter account btw? I didn't find one
I've added you as a Writer to the styled-components publication on Medium (both of you), so you should be able to submit that article to the publication somehow?
Then I should be able to edit and publish it I think
Article looks great! I'll try and create some sort of feature image for it so it shows up more nicely on social media
No I don't have a twitter actually haha, maybe I should make one... Then I'll follow you ;)
You should definitely make one!
You'll get a bunch of followers from the articles and your work 😊
I know I'm going off a topic a bit here, but any suggestions on cool people to follow on Twitter? ;)
Lots and lots of suggestions haha, let me dig in for a sec
All the people (ignore the project accounts like React_Rocks and GraphQL) on this list are must follows if you're into React:
Obviously and, the two other core maintainers of styled-components
All of these folks too:
That should get you set up pretty solidly
