Making a pixel art editor

Recently, I came across my elder brother's designing course homework about making pixel art and this idea led me to build Pixellate.

So what exactly is Pixellate?

It is a pixel art editor and creator built on HTML canvas, CSS and Javascript.

before you comment about me not using any frameworks
I would like to say that I wanted to save time and enhance my core skills.

It is a Progressive Web App (PWA) with offline compatibility.
It is mobile-friendly and is very easy to use.

Hosting:
Vercel for app
Netlify for landing page

I released the app on ProductHunt too some time back and I am happy at the results.

So head on over to pixellate.netlify.app to check out my app.

If you like the app, maybe star the github repo

Or buy me a coffee maybe?

also don't forget to leave a review on Product Hunt

I like it! One thing to note though, is that the circle, ellipse, and line tools don't work on mobile at least. I don't know if they work on a computer because mine isn't out right now, but when I tried to use them on my phone nothing happened.

Building such an app without using any frameworks shows how good you are in using javascript. Great work! You can use this to create a scrabble clone.
