On Glitch This Week

Glitch This Week is a regular series in which we round-up just some of the amazing projects that fantastic creators have made on Glitch. Here are a few projects that caught our eye this week.

Learn about Sorting Algorithms

Kicking us off this week, we have Gaeel Bradshaw-Rodriguez's project "quilted-koala" - a cute project to learn about sorting algorithms. Gnome, Bubble, Slow, Oust, Swapping Oust, and Optimised Oust algorithms are compared. You can see each working, with stats listing the number of checks, moves, and operations each has performed so you get an idea of their efficiency. Then take a look at the source code to understand how to implement each one.

Take Care of Yourself

"three-good-things" is an app that helps you to take care of your mental health.

Created by QA Analyst Desi Rottman, the app puts her own self-care ritual in to practice, helping you to remember to write down or share three good things in your life each day. "They can be things that happened the day before, things I'm looking forward to, good experiences I had, or even things as trivial as coffee", explains Desi. "Some days it's harder than others, and on those days, it feels like the most important thing to do."

Create Your Own Font

Javier Arce created "enfont-terrible", a truly "terrible" font foundry. Upload a font and then use the app to create your own weird OpenType fonts based on it.

Other apps in this week's round-up include a musical aquarium, a pixel art to Excel converter, and a Phish setlist generator. Check them out!

Awesome projects! Love @desi 's three-good-things especially. I've been setting a Google Keep note reminder where I fill in one thing I want to do that day. Think I'll start using this instead!
