This is a thread for discussing the new beta of Roast.World @ beta.roast.world , which is designed for use with the new RoasTime 3. Please read through this post before you upgrade to RoasTime 3.
IF YOU DO NOT FIRST DOWNLOAD AND USE THE LATEST VERSION OF RT2 TO CREATE A BACKUP OF YOUR RECIPES, YOU MAY LOSE THOSE RECIPES FOREVER WHEN YOU UPGRADE TO RT3
Things you need to know before you begin using RoasTime 3 and Beta.Roast.World
The old RoasTime 2 (RT2) has been quietly syncing with beta.roast.world, so your old roasts will already be there when you login to the new site with your old credentials. They will still be backed up on the old servers, too, until we take them down.
The new RoasTime 3 (RT3) will not sync with the old Roast.World, which means any roasts you do using the new software will not appear on the old Roast.World, but will instead only appear on the beta.roast.world site.
Recipes can now sync with beta.roast.world , but in order to sync them, you’ll first need to download the latest version of RT2 to create a backup of your recipes before you move them over to RT3. (Don’t worry, it’s pretty easy.)
YOU MUST FIRST DOWNLOAD AND USE THE LATEST VERSION OF RT2 FROM THE LINKS BELOW TO CREATE A BACKUP OF YOUR RECIPES, OR YOU MAY LOSE THOSE RECIPES FOREVER
How to Upgrade (Important!)
To back up your recipes and begin using RoasTime 3 with Beta.Roast.World you must follow three steps . It will only take a few minutes. (If you do not use recipes and all of your roasts are visible on beta.roast.world then you can skip the first two steps.)
- Download and install RT2 v2.5.7 on your machine.
Backup your recipes with RT2 v2.5.7. Matthew, the main RT3 coder, has produced a short video to guide you through the process. (You will also be producing a backup of your roast profiles, though this backup shouldn’t be necessary.)
Download and install RoasTime 3 from roastime.aillio.com
Congratulations! You can now use RoasTime 3 with Beta.Roast.World at https://beta.roast.world
So What’s Different in RT3?
In developing RT3, the initial primary focus has been performance and usability . That means the feel is exactly the same as RT2 – you will not need to re-learn anything. But on the backend, there has been a lot of effort put into making this version of RoasTime the most stable ever.
It will also be far easier to implement new features – eventually including some related to machine learning and integrations with other roasters/platforms. You will already notice one new feature, however. RT3 uses RoR calculations to help predict your roast curves mid-roast.
You can read more about RoasTime 3 at roastime.aillio.com under the “Documentation” menu.
So What’s Different in the New Roast.World?
The new Roast.World has a different look – less purple. There are a lot of back end functionality tweaks to make things snappier. And because it is built using React – a much more modern and robust framework than Ruby on Rails – new features will be far easier to implement, just like with RoasTime 3.
(Please note that although you can sync your recipes with the new Roast.World, you cannot yet view them on the platform, or download recipes from others. These features and also the Roast Analyzer are coming soon!)
Please share any questions or feedback about the Roast.World beta with our coders here in this thread. There is a separate thread for RT3 here. (Though there may be some overlap between the two discussions.) Thanks!
