When Proodos was starting, we decided to develop a small wordpress plugin that would show the current conditions in our town. The plugin development started in 2013. but was stopped because of other obligations and the design of our webpage was changed so it didn’t include the plugin. This year we restarted the plugin development, and we’re finally ready to launch the first version.
