     Thank you for your report, Steve, and your work you are doing to 
keep the SignWriting data safe.

Also I hope all of you on the list are keeping safe and wish you the 
best during this pandemic.

Steve,

     I was wondering in view of the work you will be doing with the 
servers,  if SignPuddle 2.0 will continue to be the editable puddles for 
some foreseeable future and we will be able to continue to export the 
puddles from there or if you will be switching the editable puddles to 
SignPuddle 3.0?

     The reason for my question is that I am developing an App called 
SWSignWriter to make it easier to share SignWriting text on mobile 
phones and on the web which depends on the current functionality of 
SignPuddle 2.0. The main focus of the app is for sharing the SignWriting 
on social media or other mobile phone apps.

     Do the React component library work with other frameworks besides 
React? like the Stencil(https://stenciljs.com/) web components? I've 
have heard of how great the web components can be but haven't worked 
with them yet.

     Look forward to your response and which you the best with all your 
projects and hope to have mine available for people to use soon.

Regards,

Jonathan
