Pedro Duarte – a talented front-end, prototype developer and the creator of wallop was happy to reveal the story behind this great project and told us a little about it:
I first created WallopSilder in October 2013 as a proof of concept. My goal was to create a progressive enhanced, zero-dependency slider library. I wanted to keep it as simple and as lightweight as possible, but at the same time, I wanted it to be powerful and flexible.
WallopSlider as a proof of concept worked just fine, but as an Open Source project, it was a major fail. So I just left it…
August 2015, I decided to pick it up again, but this time, do it properly. Here’s what I did:
– Fixed all the Issues, raised on Github
– Renamed from WallopSlider to wallop
– Added on npm and Bower
– Started doing semantic versioning and releases
– Wrote good documentation
– Wrote tests and integrated CI
– Built a new landing page
