In the never ending story that is the development of #MidnightMurderParty, not really, itโ€™s getting close, @rhitakorrr pinged me yesterday afternoon with a double request. Firstly, he wanted an end point at which he could receive the release date of the next unreleased segment of the story. Thirty minutes later, give or take, /api/next was born. Simple enough.

Unfortunately, the second request was to figure out why the hell unreleased segments (release date falls after today) were appearing in the reader. That was a fun little bug to figure out. Turns out I was only checking the release dates for chapters, not every entry within a chapter. Woops. ๐Ÿ˜› The release bug was somewhat simple to fix but the resulting refactoring took quite a bit more time and brainpower.

Also, I locked down the Gemfile after witnessing Puma bump to 3.7.0 and break deploysโ€ฆ no thank you. ๐Ÿ˜… ๐Ÿ”’ Locked down. ๐Ÿ”’
