Discussion on: What was your win this week?

Always love this topic. Helps to find a positive each week. So ah, thanks for starting it. :-)

This week I took a day off and just played with some code I've been "intending" to play with and never seem to find time for.

Project is simple/silly, but the stack is Go (+gorilla/mux) + MongoDB + Svelte. The Go+Mongo look to be the easy part of the whole thing and I had a functioning (if incomplete) API up in a few hours that was also delivering my SPA.

Svelte, on the other hand, looks to be more difficult. I usually want to see 3-5 different approaches to architecture before I settle on a path, and at this point there isn't a lot of real-world work that's not Sapper (which doesn't appear to mesh well with the Go-as-server route).

It was silly, and fun and went a long way towards recharging my batteries.
