Quests is available on Github
One of our Build It Day experiments at Steamclock produced a little Mac menubar app called Quests. It let you quickly access the Github issues assigned to you. In the spirit of shipping stuff, we packaged it up and put it up for download on the App Store as a free app, business model TBD. A lot of folks found it useful, which was great!
We continued to refine the design over time but struggled to find a business model that would support Quests as a sustainable product. When Github, Gitlab, or Apple changes something that impacts Quests, it was hard for us to prioritize fixing it as promptly as we thought our users deserved. We want products to delight, and an app that takes forever to support new macOS releases is not delightful. So we were hosting a useful app that basically languished, meanwhile a bunch of programmers around the world were writing in about their ideas for for small fixes and additions to it.
In early 2021 we made the decision to open source Quests. The Mac developer community were wonderful supporters of Quests and we looked forward to being able to reply to feature requests with “patches welcome!” instead of just “that would be nice!”
