I'm building Makerflow to help developers get in flow mode more often without sacrificing collaboration - so that coding is more efficient and joyful!

I signed up but still don't understand what is it about. Can you explain?

Thanks for checking it out! It can:

  1. block distracting apps and websites when you turn on Flow Mode - you'll need the CLI and browser extension to really take advantage of that
  2. If you connect it to your slack, it can also update your status to let your colleagues know you might slow to respond in Flow Mode
  3. If you get the vscode extension, it can automatically turn on Flow Mode when you start coding.
  4. If you connect it to github or bitbucket, you can get a list of PRs assigned to you. List is visible in vscode, cli, or webapp
  5. If you connect it to your Google Calendar, you can see your events and join Google Meet video chats in vscode, cli, or webapp
  6. With the Google calendar integration you can also call a cli command to automatically launch Google Meet when your event/meeting starts.

I like the idea. But I think there needs to be more "connections". Discord, Teams, Visual Studio, and other apps that might be distracting.

Yeah, I will expand integrations eventually. I am working on this on nights and weekends as a solo dev. It does close Discord when you start flow mode

It definitely has potential. I know for sure it would help me a lot.

I've written some linux scripts that I run before/after going in focus mode.. That acts pretty similar to what your software does (No detection though, manual start/stop :D)
I like what you've done, nice approach and goodluck!

I'm building Chartbrick, a tool to create charts using your databases from Notion or Airtable, to visualize your data as insightful charts and embed them in Notion pages or anywhere else.

I needed a tool for that and I couldn't find one, so I'm building it myself.

Great question!

We are building dynamic image generation platform to help developers, marketers, and business owners to automate unique content creation.

We tried several existing tools for our client's project but unfortunately none of them fit our requirements. So we decided to build one ourselves.

We've built the first serverless Feature Store + Model Registry that is free.

We hope that people will move to ML and be able to build their very own prediction services, democratizing AI not only for big companies.

We just launched supastarter. Its a boilerplate for building web apps based on Supabase and Next.js. It saves you time and money and gives you a real headstart on building your web app or SaaS!
