State of the Shake

Here’s what we did last week.

  • Yearly subscriptions.
  • Significantly sped up page loading by generating summaries of counts. In short: perma-link pages went from 100ms to 20ms to load. What this also means is we can now present total views/likes/saves on your files. We’re doing that this week.
  • Speed. Oh yeah!
  • Release the API. GO GET IT.

Here’s what we’re doing this week:

  • Add Facebook sharing button. Did this in the morning. Seems to be working but if you have any feedback about it we’d appreciate it.
  • Bookmarklet. Finally, a way to share files and videos without a plugin. Also good for when you’re on a mobile device.
  • New user welcome pages, home page, and finding people and shakes to follow pages.
  • User counts: total likes, views, and shared files.
  • List of shakes on their user page.
  • Making it clearer on friend shakes where the file also lives (e.g, User shake)

I think I’m missing something. We’ll update this page if anything changes. We do still want to add the ability to rotate an image and auto-rotate if there is orientation data. The priority is just lower.


You guys are awesome updating machines!

Is there a tutorial page about how the site functions? I thought there was one that I saw when I first signed up, but I can't seem to find it again.

Is it RSS feeds?

Is there RSS Feeds?


More importantly, can someone play with the API and find a convenient way for me to use/post to mlkshk from my Android device?

FireFox wants to update, but it warns me that the Mlkshk extension will no longer work. is there a work-around yet?

It would be great to have more options for sharing pictures on Facebook, e.g. post it to a friend's wall or in a direct message. I very often want to share pictures with just one or two other people.
