Introducing DUMB a blogging web app 🌳

Overview of My Submission

My Journey πŸ‘€

So on April 13 I decided to build an application using Appwrite. My goal was to learn Appwrite. So I decided to clone and called in, coz why not ? 😹

And yeah I completed my applications, Its not like, but I took the idea of sharing posts. I created a blogging web app with some cool features.

I used Appwrite and Next JS to build this. It was tough.

Its hard

Using Appwrite was shooting your foot with gun, Its hard. I tried to use Appwrite functions, but the docs didn't show that much. I spent days figuring out how to make index work. So many things didn't work as expected πŸšΆβ€β™‚οΈ.

But I really enjoyed using Appwrite (I guess). I really loved how it handles user authentication, how they provide permission. And how easy is to setup etc. Appwrite is in its early stage. I'm looking forward it to grow big πŸ™‚
