Just a couple of weeks ago i presented to you the new code change for MyeTV planned for the end of this year. Now we can explore better what we are doing at Myetv‘s HQ with this first chapter of the #codechange. This simple change will make all the website and the apps 60% faster with an increment of 80% on security and another 80% in terms of performance, this will make the Myetv‘s code OpenSource and better written and, at least, this update will make some headache to our developers; but is ok… we’re prepared for them ;)
In facts with the new code, actually in the works and soon in production, we’re delivering one of the best update for all our platform, removing all the security issues encountered in these years and write the code understandable, clean and less; for making this most secure ever we’re changing all the authentication platform with a new one, so you will need to change your passwords with a simple wizard if you just have an account registered and you will login in the php website. The new authentication system is based on one of the best OpenSource code called “Francium Project“, updated and released the past summer by a young indian coder; we just make a little changes to make it more stable and secure than the default version.
This will advantage you, not only to authenticate your session, but also to authenticate and encrypt all the sessions and cookies and data passed through the forms; noone will ever know your passwords as the keys for decryption are not stored with them and you can always change your passwords with a simple wizard and your email. One of the best thing is that this approach will be used also for private instant messaging. For making all this we will close all the new registrations and signup at the end of September 2015, so noone can register a new account after September 2015; this will remain close until the new website written in php is ready to production mode.
Another good news to share is that we can really use a little USB pen to run all the new code locally and with all the features inside it; the server-side code could be published in a public repository but we’re not going to do that, for now; the server-side code will be inaccessible from the public eyes. Step by step we will fix and release also apps for various devices and operating systems to meet all the updates made.
As this blog is written in php language, we will be more unite than ever; when registering on MyeTV you will also have automatically the user access to this blog, so you can interact more with our blog posts.
In addition, we will sanitize the urls params and the main url and the languages system, the main website will be “https://www.myetv.tv” for all the languages; we will use only a simple cookie to switch languages. This will improve the privacy for all the users as the language param will never more passed in urls with GEOIP.
With the new website we will also update and add new myapps and features… For specifications on video encoding and all the new video features that we can work in the future, you should wait some weeks.
Please stand by… We are working to make the next year the best year ever for our World and for our entire Community. Finally. I think we’ll deserve it.
In the meantime remember that at 30 September 2015 new signup and registrations will be closed for all the public, but all the website, accounts and services will work as normal.
Thanks for reading me guys and girls :)
much love, take love, share love. Give a kiss!
