tl8 1.0.0 is out

I released tl8 last year. It came with a few integration issues. The main one was that I built the application with Electron and embedded a web view to render the application to be translated. Problem: some web apps have security settings or workflows that don't allow for such a rendering.

With tl8 1.0.0, all Angular apps can be translated.

It took some time but it's here. The application is available for Mac, Windows and Linux. You can check the home page for more information:  The web application no longer exists as it would be too much work to maintain it and would need iframes to run and would therefore suffer from the limitations I mentionned above. The journey to get around the limitations of Electron involved several BrowerViews. One of them is dedicated to run the target application and doesn't have any limitation regarding the content it can run!

1.0.0 provides a solid user experience that enables you to easily change translations and content in an Angular application. It also comes with some bug fixes.

There are features and improvements planned for the next iteration that will be described in a further blog post.
