I've built & launched a directory from 0→1 in 54 minutes.
A real experiment with a happy end!
NextJS starter kits and boilerplates are super hot these days. It was as hot as gpts or AI back in the day. So I saw the trend.
→ Name & Domain.
I went to Google and searched for everything related to this to find a keyword that got nothing serious on the top. Then I looked at the Google searches for this keyword and picked the one with 10k searches but low competition and it was available on Godaddy for $10.
→ Directory and text.
I went to unicornplatform, picked a directory template, and cloned it.
I asked AI to edit to next based on the project name, it just made it all well from the first try.
→ Images, logo, favicon, video.
I asked ChatGPT Vision to generate this. It did a good job. Then I went to runwayml to edit the generated images with prompts and the gif for the tweet.
Took me about 10 minutes to make it beautiful.
I went to DevHunt and PH and found winners. Added 4. Just to start with.
→ New content.
I added a form so people can submit their NextJS starters, so that I can start to fill up the list.
→ I've wrote this tweet, and I'm about to hit "Post" btn
Submit your starter kits, in case this goes viral, those who submit first will be on the top of the list
