I'm writing a Typescript interface for the Phillips Hue APIv2 because none of the existing solutions supported gradient light-strips, its called Hue-Sync and its part of a larger side project that will become the open source alternative to the $300 Phillips HDMI Sync box

The Tails V2 beta is already being tested by a few users!

We've done the groundwork for our API too!

Made a lil SMS app to text my ideas and have them be texted back to me later. I was already texting myself ideas so I figured it'd be nice to have them be sent back, ranked, and searchable.

Good idea! Why don't you develop a Telegram bot? The porting should be simple and you could have a wider audience that would use the app!

Great idea - I had looked at WhatsApp but that seemed too involved. I’ll give Telegram a look!

I am currently on the verge of burning out, so over the weekend I want to limit coding time, and focus my energy outward by connecting with people. I've reactivated my twitter account, and this reply is my actually very first interaction on dev.to!

I'll be brainstorming blog post ideas and other ways to document my journey. Unfortunately I've been neglecting the networking part, so I hope to connect with the community more.

I hope to have my portfolio deployed in the next week or two.

Working on a free staking crypto rates comparator.

It's written in NextJs and deployed on vercel.

I currently compare 25 exchanges and more than 500 coins.

I first created this because I wanted to find the best place to stake MATIC.

But I'm pretty sure right now, the right way to go is to stake ethereum as you can get 10,63% not locked with rewards distributed daily!

I'm a little late to this, but I was daydreaming while waiting for fireworks on the 3rd and decided to try seeing if I could build an AI to play the One Night Ultimate Werewolf social deduction game against itself using a limited number of roles, probabilistic modeling, and some form of reinforcement learning. The project is coming along, but it's not capable of lying to me yet!

I am hacking up a local DNS server to have more control about how is it resolving. I plan to make some kind of CLI and providers to domainize stuff like my zerotier hosts and container IPs and applying blocklists on the fly. It's very experimental, PoC level.

github.com/lucasew/simple-dns

Just build it, run it as root and add nameserver 127.0.0.1 to the first line of /etc/resolv.conf and it's working (I expect).

I'm currently working on a different way to creatively understand how to get things done. Trying to figure out a way to get some traffic to the experimental site so we can get some feedback.

We posted a contest last week here on dev.to but so far nobody has entered --- entering just requires posting a reply as explained on the posting.

Hoping a few people check it out and give it a few minutes of their time before the contest ends.

I made the frontend for my personal note taking app, based on fastify and preact. it is very small, only 5 tables.

this project is mostly something for me to try out some stuff and learn.

the app basically works, but i feel i need to refactor it to use redux or some other state management. just using useState and useEffect hook is not killing it anymore.

before, i started the app with express and refactor to fastify with swagger.

also, first i implemented a clientside sdk by hand, until i build an sdk generation script that generates the complete sdk from the swagger definition.

I think once i am happy with the setup i can remove my app related stuff and turn the project into a nice little boilerplate,...

I started to build a database (on excel first!) to help software engineers know if they are well paid in France.
Some french software engineers earn outstanding salaries because they work remotely for US companies or the most famous startup in France. And there is some salary transparency there.
But for software engineers working in the classic SMB, it can be hard to know if they are well paid or not. That's why I'm trying to build this database!
