Who is developing Minion?
 
Just curious. Who is developing it? And does it get funding from somewhere?

Thanks.

I've basically taken over development of the client side. It gets funded out of my own pocket (=my time :D), but you can support me via PayPal or Patreon. Once Minion 4 is released, it will go open source so others can help with it too.

As for the backend, that is handled by Dolby.

Cool. What do you mean by backend? The website for it?

And now it sounds a bit mysterious! Who did you pick it up from? How come they quit? This is a real internet mystery :D

The person working on it before (jwood) just doesn't have the time atm to work on it but was apart of Minion2 and 3. I did most of the jfx (UI), some light java and installer scripts along with backend api/server stuff. Sirinsidiator was awesome enough to volunteer his time and take on the java development of the up coming Minion 4.

Backend meaning the API minion talks to to get all the data it needs from our site, Code signing stuff, etc. I also plan to do some graphics work and UI work but Sirinsidiator has already stepped in on making some nice changes to the UI for v4. Also plan on working on build automation in the future.

Cool. Thanks for answering all the questions.

And good luck with Minion 4!

May I be of assistance? I'm making a living developing on Java (mostly backend, but can handle JFX as well), so this isn't a terra incognito for me. Once I've even decompiled the main jar and suggested a fix for writing minion.xml on non-western locale systems. It's found its way into current version.

Now I'd like to step just because I've again found today that when Minion scans AddOns folder anew it sometimes (I dodn't recall exactly why) uses Server's version instead of the one from TOC. I fixed this locally, but since then had erased the partition with this work. So, instead of decompiling again, I'd like this directly to source. :)

If I remember right Minion 4 is under construction and after tests will be made open source then so one can help and contribute.

Well, I think that my help this release will come quicker. :)
