Very nice. I like the style (and the animations are just plain cool!). As always, impressed with the tech!
Two concerns (bugs?) for the Mac UI client:
1) Copy and paste does not work to enter pass phrase (CTRL-V, nor right click)
2) Application icon is FIMK coin symbol.
I'm not sure I understand the tri-architecture. I installed and ran heat-server on a VPS, though it all looks like brand new middleware and quite a bit different to my expectations. Is heat-ledger (not available on Github, BTW) the replacement equivalent for what I used to know as 'fim-server'?
Can you elaborate a little more on new architecture, and comment on source availability for heat-ledger portion of the stack?
While windows and linux apps are pretty sound (since we have linux and windows machines to test that on) the macos version is still awaiting me getting a mac. Without an actual mac making these installers is almost impossible, I did the best I can however while not even having a mac.
The tri-architecture is different from our predecessor(s) (Btc, Eth, Nxt etc) where those others try (and fail) to solve all needs with one product.
Their architecture is P2P == DATABASE INDEX == SEARCH == API etc.. With Heat there is the ledger which does the p2p part.
But to serve the daily data to all the 500.000+ daily users
all using the heat-ui client for their messaging and trading, you cannot do that from an API that runs inside a crypto client. For that you need a proper scaling server solution that can be scaled up or down as needed, basically how every big data provider does that (facebook, whatsapp, slack etc).
That server solution is what we call the heat-server and the one we are making (on Play! Framework) can be considered the reference implementation and will be the one that powers our API servers.
Source code for heat-ledger is not available yet. Still working on that.
End users will want to run an instance of heat-ledger on their servers, they'll be rewarded for doing so and helping the network out. Deep API data and real-time websocket connectors will be provided by our cloud hosted version of heat-server (load balanced cluster architecture), when automating your business on Heat you'll connect to those servers on the heatledger.com domain.
Since everything is open source, if you want to you can run the full stack yourself but this is not required.
