Macroplant Website version 2.0

Please welcome to our brand new, Ruby on Rails powered, website! Back in 2008, we launched Macroplant and since then we've been updating our Mac and Windows apps with the latest frameworks, but website had fallen behind. Having spent the last three years creating (which now ranks as a top 1,000 most popular website in the US), we decided to apply what we learned to overhaul our site.

We made over 1000 commits to make this new website live, and the biggest advantages of the new site are things like maintainability, scalability and ease of creating and managing data integrations. For now, only notice the tip of the iceberg is readily noticeable and includes improvements like:

  • iExplorer 4 Upgrade Discounts Improved database integration allowing us to easily offer iExplorer 4 upgrade discounts for existing users. Bought iExplorer 3? Get your iExplorer 4 upgrade discount here.
  • Integrated Release Notes We can now display our release notes where, when and how we want them, even easily integrating them into our apps. Additionally publishing updates takes less time than ever before for us so we can get more done even quicker going forward.
