Release 0.2

For release 0.2 I completed Issue #308 for Mobile Webmaker which is an implementation of checking to determine if a username is taken while signing up. From my previous blog post, I have changed the functionality to check as a user types.

This issue was solved by using Vue’s functionality for listening inside an html element. Using the v-on directive listening for a key-up I am able to trigger a javascript function which uses a function in the Webmaker Authentication Client in order to determine if a username is taken or not then I display the result to the user in a less robotic way.

The pull request can be found here.

I also worked on implementing a map brick, however that will involve much more time to complete and is therefore for another release. Currently, the map is displaying correctly but the architecture for how the map brick should be implemented needs further work.
