Dear subscribers and Patrons,
It's that time of the month where you get to vote on what we focus on! During October we ended up only implementing the winner of the previous vote, namely Mentions as you go. I took the rest of October off to rest and re-energise for the upcoming cold weather.
This month's vote will concentrate on two options, with one carried over from the previous month.
The marketplace currently allows themes, with content packs and attribute templates teased as future improvements.
Content packs would allow plugin creators to create entities in the marketplace like they do in Kanka, with images, relations, mentions that can then be imported into campaigns. The idea is that creators can create either small settings, quests, or other worldbuilding ideas that can be quickly added to campaigns.
Attribute templates would allow plugin creators to create a set of attributes for entities, an HTML view on how to display those, along with the CSS to design the page. This would notably allow the community to create character sheets for various RPG systems.
We want to allow more control on the dashboard (sections, headers, control on the widget names), and also allow setting up custom dashboards for members of your campaigns. So for example you can have a dashboard for players in your campaign A, another dashboard for players in your campaign B, and another one for you and your co-dms.
Both options require lots of work and many changes to Kanka, but we are equally excited by both options. As always, features that don't win the vote will go back into the backlog and eventually make it to the app.
If you have any questions about the options, come join us on Discord!
