What is Terre? What is changed?

MoreCoreExperienceIf you followed me into the last year you probably heard about Project Terre. This is the codename for all my applications. Terre is “world” in French, and all projects has a name of one city. Quebec for Formula – Universal Code Editor, Nice for Random 42, and so on.

When I started the project terre, the biggest deal was to release one app each week, and it was a success! But with this to keep the project was a big deal. And I started to work in the Core. The core.

The core is a class library with all data, and all components that is synced with the apps (except Formula), it started with some methods, and later with some pages and images.

So, now that you understand what Terre is, here is what have been changed:

  • More Core experience: The Core project was a portable class library, and that wasn’t enough, so it was changed to Universal Apps Class Library. In this way, it is simpler to work on it.
  • Same solution: All projects is now under the same solution. Why? Well, because of the core experience. This makes it simpler to develop and makes sense, since the apps is in the same collection.
  • Dropping support: It is official, for now on, Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 won’t be updated and will be removed from the store. I’m not developing more Win8.1 and WP8.1 apps.

Three changes, big ones, that will impact in how I develop this apps. So, news is coming and maybe new apps. I just can say that there is a vtn_impressive2017 branch in the GitHub.
