LeadPages paid me to work on Hypatia Engine for a day

My current employer, LeadPages, hosted a hackday party. I believe they do them once a month (I’m new here). For one of the challenges, I submitted a solution to reproducing a given image with CSS and HTML, but that only took a short while.

LeadPages paid me to work on Hypatia Engine all day! In that time I managed to get caught up on PRs, cleaning up the project, updating the docs, and some miscellanea. I finally released Hypatia Engine 0.3.4 after the aforementioned changes– I had been sitting on unreleased features for a while (see: changelog).

Along with this update, the Hypatia Engine GitHub repository is now prepared for, and technically is, using the new git flow described in the CONTRIBUTING.md.

The biggest feature in the 0.3.4 release is the new bootstrap script I wrote. It’s pretty elegant! It acts as a convenient universal installer.

I’m trying to get better at having a faster release cycle with smaller and more frequent releases.
