Joy of Open Source

*** update IV/2017:  from comment below, check this great raster plug-in  from Victor Veralde Gutiérrez too: https://github.com/IHCantabria/Leaflet.CanvasLayer.Field/  ***

I have got great, absolutely amazing  joy today from my own open source experiment. In 2014, nearly 2 years ago,  I have published on GitHub (gist)  L.CanvasOverlay a small class  to handle generic drawing on top of Leaflet, I was thinking let’s try to  contribute back to the open source with this little snippet –  I thought would be useful so I have added little description. Original blog post here: https://blog.sumbera.com/2014/04/20/leaflet-canvas/

After few months later I found it is used on http://windyty.com   one of the best 2015 geo-visualization with huge popularity. It is a small part of this great app, but makes me feel so good like I am part of it, I am looking on something where is my small piece, small share…meaning of the effort, sense of publishing and open sourcing.

And today I have got echo it is used also in Marine National Facility here: http://www.cmar.csiro.au/data/underway.test/

This makes me so happy … and just came across this quote : “Revenue is a lagging indicator, usage is a leading indicator,” can’t remember, who just said that ? :)
