The layout changes and polish from last month have provided a lot of momentum. So instead of squandering it, I'll embrace it. I want to share FrontierNav more widely and polish is exactly what's been holding me back.
This month I'll continue focusing on polish. I'll improve various Data Tables and Maps behaviours that have in the backlog for a while. The list of little features have been growing as I focused on larger features in the last few months. Things that you'd expect to be normal, like drag and drop.
Thanks for reading.
