  • Fixed bug that prevented site from updating due to a universe (Steel Valkyries) with no skinlines in the game files.

  • Skins now have a SkinSpotlights jumplink. Implementation is a bit rudimentary, but it serves the purpose (for now).
  • OpenSearch support! Skin Explorer now registers as a search engine in the browser so you can search without even loading the website.
  • All data is now cached at build time instead of coming from the Redis cache at runtime, including the resources needed for dynamic routes like the Omnisearch API.

  • Added a "new additions" section on all indexes that shows all the skins in the PBE that aren't on the live patch. Maybe there's a better way to determine these, but I'll revisit it later.
  • Added a placeholder image for non-existent images (as happens often with newly released skins).
  • Minor styling changes.
