Development Update #3 - Ethereum.org

Development Update #3 - Ethereum.org

Hey Ethereum! Here’s the latest update from the ethereum.org team:

Help us reach 30 languages!

Over the last 6 months, the global Ethereum community has translated Ethereum.org into 23 languages. Today, traffic to non-english pages accounts for more than 20% of all traffic.

Over the next 2 months, we want to raise the total number of supported languages to over 30. If you are a speaker of a language that is not currently supported by ethereum.org, we’d love to have your help!

We’re especially looking for native speakers of Vietnamese, Thai, Danish, Norwegian, Hungarian, Finnish, or Ukranian.

Even if your language is already supported, we’d love your help updating localizations to the most recent version of the site!

Ethereum.org on ENS & IPFS

The website is now available on IPFS and accessible via ENS at ethereum.eth. Here’s more information from the ENS team on how to access it.

Special thanks to the IPFS team (particularly Chris Waring) who created a VuePress plugin for IPFS to make this implementation as easy as possible. Additional shoutouts to Brantly Millegan of the ENS team and Alex Van de Sande for contributing to this initiative.

Improved search function

A truly community-inspired upgrade, we received feedback from multiple users that ethereum.org’s site search (which only listed results based on page title or header matches) made it difficult to find resources on specific topics, even if we did have content covering it on the site.

We just shipped a new search function using Algolia, which indexes all HTML on our pages and provides results based on fuzzy matching in addition to exact and partial matching. This should greatly improve the discoverability of all our site’s guides, tools and resources.

Happy 1-year anniversary 🙂

One year ago, we launched the new Ethereum.org.

Over the last 12 months, we’ve been amazed at the Ethereum community’s support. We’ve had more than 170 people make contributions to the website, and more than 350 volunteers have helped translate the site into their native languages.

Thank you for your support, feedback, and above all for being part of the Ethereum community.

What’s next?

Content will be a major focus for our team over the coming months, including revamps of existing pages and the addition of new pages:

  • Introduction to EIPs (live)
  • Ethereum Foundation (live)
  • ETH 2.0 (in progress)
  • Ethereum Nodes (in progress)
  • Ethereum Gas
  • DeFi
  • Ethereum whitepaper
  • Stablecoins
  • Ethereum news
  • …and more!

We’re nearly finished a full audit of all the Developers content on the site, thanks to the help of some awesome Ethereum community members. This is going to result in removing and adding content, re-organizing pages, and re-writing some of the existing content.

We’re also continuing with the rollout of the design upgrade, and excited to share new layouts of pages with the community in the coming weeks.

Want to get involved? Or are you curious to see what we’re working on day-to-day? We recently published a new About Ethereum.org page that displays our public roadmap. Feel free to take a look and share your ideas and feedback with us.
