it's been one year since ruote development stopped.

This email to tell you that its successor [almost] lives on

Actually, it lives on at but will be the service
we will sell to make flon live.

We gathered some capital and built a company to create and maintain flon and

What killed ruote was that it was a side project and it went too wide: too
many storage options to maintain and support. Flon's scope is much more
limited: it's a pair of daemons that persist to disk and talk json over http.

Unlike ruote, flon is not a Ruby library. To communicate with flon, you have
to go through its http api.

That open source side lives at it's not much
documented for now, especially since we are pushing It only runs
"sequence", "invoke", "set" and "wait" for now.

Flon's mailing list is at
( you can subscribe by sending an
empty email to the list.

We will send out invitations for before the winter ends. If you're
interested, please reply here or mail me privately at
You can register as well, directly at
I'll then send you an invitation for an account when the beta will
be ready.

If you have questions about flon and feel free to ask in a reply.

Thanks to all of you who helped, especially to Danny Fullerton!

I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
